I'm trying to create a menu and submenu with a child theme of twentyten, similar to this at the LA Times: http://www.latimes.com/ where when the site is first opened, it displays a set of childs, and then when other parents are hovered over, other childs are displayed.

As I say, I'm trying to achieve this using the custom menu function built into WP 3.0.

Thanks for you help.

So something like the LA Times can't be achieved with css alone. Can any dropline type of navigation be achieved using solely css and the wp_nav_menu function. Just so everyone knows, I'm very much a self-taught wordpress user and all my css, html and now php knowledge has come from mainly online resources and books. Therefore, explanations are helpful. Thanks for your help. – Gavin May 13 '11 at 8:46
I would be interested to see how this can be done. I did notice quite a few WP themes that display a 2nd level child menu when hovering over the main menu. Hope someone could chip in. – Sledge81 May 15 '12 at 7:23

There are probably several solutions to this, but this is what I would do:

First set a static front page. This can be done in Settings->Reading.
This will cause the menu item (page) selected to have the CSS class current-menu-item and also to display any sub-menu items you have.

Then you just CSS them to be shown in a second row.
