I made a child theme defined as so:
/* Theme Name: GlenTheme Description: Modified Gallery 2.3 theme Template: gallery */ @import url("../gallery/style.css");
The only file in the child theme is this style.css
Within the menu, though, the markup is coming up differently: in the child theme the menu comes out like this (partially):
<div id="menu" class="dropdown"> <div class="home"><ul><li class="page_item page-item-5057">
While in the parent theme it comes out like this:
<div id="menu" class="dropdown"> <ul id="nav" class="home"><li id="menu-item-5049" class="menu-item menu-item-type-custom menu-item-object-custom current-menu-item current_page_item menu-item-home menu-item-5049">
As I understand parent-child themes they should be identical, but clearly something in the markup is getting changed, the code governing this is the menu function..
I could obviously rewrite the menu styles to make them apply properly to the different markup, but I really want to know why there's any different markup in the first place!
