I'm creating a theme from a template based on Wordpress 3.0. I've started with items like Starkers which is a completely bare theme, and even tried modifying something by default like Twenty Ten or Eleven. However, the thing that gets me is how can I adjust the css to covert a single line of PHP such as (used as default now for navigation):
<?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'primary' ) ); ?>
<?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'container_class' => 'menu-header', 'theme_location' => 'primary' ) ); ?>
Into a stylized list element that can be adjusted to the length of the entire navigation menu?
I'm not understanding how the PHP is turned into the right amount of
<li>'s (which is the case in the generated html viewable in Firebug or another inspector) where I can modify them how I wish.
