is it possible to change the menus into drop down?

    Hi all,

    Would a CSS designer be easily able to change the present horizontal menus into drop downs? More generally, is building a Buddypress theme more difficult than making one for WordPress?

    Thank you

    Easily… Depends on the developer…

    It isn’t more difficult, there’s just more files to change and more function calls to remember and use.

    Easy

    If you can build a WordPress theme, building a BuddyPress theme is not very hard – it is just larger.

    Ok, thank you,

    I’ve got to find the right designer then…

    Will I risk having to have the whole thing redone at every update?

    Here’s a very good one. It uses jQuery, which is included in WordPress.

    Once you have the javascript and css in place the menu is not dramatically different from what comes with default templates – ul li etc.

    Will I risk having to have the whole thing redone at every update?

    Yes – because you’ll essentially be customising the default BuddyPress themes.

    Uho… DJPaul, are you saying there’s a possibility of a conflict between a customised theme and the update, or is it certain?

    I think originally the idea was to keep functionality and layout separate, so you could do whatever the hell you wanted with the templates without messing up the system. After upgrading you just reinstall your own template and everything should be fine.

    Not sure if that’s still the case, with all the widget stuff etc. I just throw out anything that makes the templates too complex.

    I’m saying it’s possible. Who knows what will happen.

    It won’t break any functionality. You’re not modifying the core. You’re just creating your own theme based on the default theme. When you update, just make sure you don’t overwrite the entire wp-content directory (there the themes are kept).
