Hello!

First of all many many many thanks for a truly great theme!

I've searched the forum but haven't really found a post with instructions of how to make the Category Menu Bar items link to my Pages instead of my Categories. Basically what I want is to have the Pages Menu Bars look, feel and be positioned where the Category Menu Bar is

Is there an easy way to do this?

Thank you in advance!
/Freddy

Thank you very much for your prompt reply! Call me stupid but I can't seem to figure it out, with other themes I've been able to inlcude pages in the category menu. I presume I'm approaching it the wrong way but it's either that or making %pages look like %cats I've been looking for. Even if I change the colors of the page menu it still doesn't have the same look as the category menu.

Hope I'm not being a nuisance!

you have a page menubar and a category menu bar. Pages go in teh page menu bar and categories go in the category menubar. If you want to mix them, you will have to do some coding changes. I beleive there is a thread about doing this. Or you can wait for WP 3.0 (and an Atahualpa version that supports it) where you can create your own menus and mix pages and categories.

Or if you just want the two bars to look the same adjust the setting in ATO>Page Menu Bar and ATO>Category Menu Bar

Thanks again, to the both of you!
@lmilesw - that's what I've done now, but the actual shape of the Page Meny Bar items (they're designed to be on top of something, i.e the header image) aren't the same as the Category Menu Bar items so it won't really achieve the same thing.

I'll see if I can fiddle with the codes!

Thanks again though!

Look in CSS Inserts for

/* round corners for page menu bar items */

You can modify the code there to take out the round corners.

Wow what a quick reply! Thanks!

I found a very quick solution for this though, which actually replaces the category items in the bar with the page items.

In bfa_header_config.php find:
Code:
	// Create menu list
	echo bfa_hor_cats($bfa_ata['sorting_cat_menu_bar'], $bfa_ata['order_cat_menu_bar'], 
	$bfa_ata['levels_cat_menu_bar'], $bfa_ata['titles_cat_menu_bar'], $bfa_ata['exclude_cat_menu_bar']);
replace with:
Code:
	// Create menu list
	echo bfa_hor_pages($bfa_ata['sorting_page_menu_bar'], $bfa_ata['order_page_menu_bar'], 
	$bfa_ata['levels_page_menu_bar'], $bfa_ata['titles_page_menu_bar'], $bfa_ata['exclude_page_menu_bar']);
It seems to work fine! I presume if you want changes done to them you'll have to go through the Category Menu Bar options to change them - but that's no problemo for me.

Thanks for all of your assistance!
