    I stumbled on Chris’s great Simple jQuery Dropdown menu [], and it works just the way I want it to both in IE and "real" browsers. However, it requires a class added to the child ul:

    <ul class="dropdown">
    <li><a href="facilities.php">Facilities</a>
    <ul class="sub_menu">

    I suspect there is a way to add this in the functions file, but it’s beyond my copy-paste-tinker PHP skills to create the function :oops:
    How do I do this?


    Mike Little of furnished a solution on a LinkedIn forum:

    In the theme functions file:

    class My_Walker_Page extends Walker_Page {
    function start_lvl(&$output, $depth) {
    $indent = str_repeat("t", $depth);
    if (0 == $depth)
    $output .= "n$indent<ul class="sub_menu">n";
    $output .= "n$indent<ul>n";

    In the header file where menu is to appear:

    <ul class="dropdown"><?php $walker = new My_Walker_Page;
    wp_list_pages(array(‘title_li’=>”, ‘depth’ => 2, ‘walker’ => $walker)); ?></ul>

    Mucho gracias to Mike Little, who was a founding member of the WordPress team.
