I have been looking at the possibilities to modify the lt_pagan template menus.
I had a java script drop down menu which my colleague integrated into ip_default template in IP 1x. and it worked fine
I tried to integrate the same java script drop down into lt_pagan (RC2_2) and whilst I got it to work in IP 1 X it seemed to make a mess of the menu management in RC2_1 and RC2_2. So as I don't know much about java script, I gave up with this java script menu.
Instead I integrated a pure css drop down menu from another cms I have used in the past - the code is GPL so I thought why not try it. It works and does not seem to interfere with the menu management or anything else. See screen shot below, (graphic still not perfect, but I am working on it .........

Now for my question/ request the side menu of lt_pagan seems to work differently to the old ip_default template (and in fact the cahndeso template that I tried, it seems that the code for the side menu in ip_default and cahndeso is the same).
If you look at the screenshot below all the menu items in the side menu are shown all of the time. Whereas in IP 1 x when you had sub pages in say the photos tab they were hidden until you clicked on the photos page then they appeared (accordion I think it is called.)

This is a problem for me, because when I get around to changing our current website over to IP we will have about 35 pages on the Polish language and it will increase to about 50 later (probably 10~15 pages on the English side). So I need a drop down and an accordion side menu.
I tried to integrate the side menu code from ip_default template, in fact the first screen shot above has the ip_default side menu code integrated into lt_pagan, it works but the sub pages are not shown. The sub pages are in the menu manage system but are not shown. From FireBug I see from the metrics section that box of the 2nd level items have minus width values (-25px x18px). Inspecting the same elements in Chrome gives the box sizes as (auto x auto.)
Any ideas why the ip_default side menu code does not work properly (wheres as my pure css drop down code works ok) ??
Or will the lt_pagan template side menu be updated to accordion ???
Any help appreciated.
