    Hi all

    Brand new to SocialEngine PHP. I am having trouble to trying to build a menu that I want.

    "Audubon" would appear as menu item on homepage

    When you click "Audubon" its sub-menu appears with external links


       "Aiken Audubon" (external link)

       "Evergreen Audubon" (external link

       son and so on ...

    Appreciate your step by step instructions and advice. Gary

    Welcome aboard.I used to be a member of the Audubon Society. Not sure if you're doing something for that. 

    As the script doesn't support drop down menus added to the main menu, out of the box, you would need to code some stuff. We do have an improvement coming for this though.

    Here's how to add your menu>-menu-editor which you can make as a drop down. First, Add Menu and then Add Items to that menu. So that's one part done.

    Then you'll need to either add a Generic menu widget via the layout editor,>-layout-editor and do some CSS in the theme manager to make it look nice, or you'll need to add that to the main menu via code. I'm not in my local to test adding code atm to give you that and it would be a source edit to do. 

    I am not seeing a certified plugin for this in the marketplace.

    Is this menu structure a part of the SE Main Menu or a separate menu (screenshot/mockup would be helpful)?
