    Hi,

    I've been quickly trying to set up a website using RapidWeaver (nice n easy to use), but have come across some menu issues regarding sub pages. In this case using Photo Albums..

    Basically, the navigation looks similar to this:

    -Home
    -Photos
    Photo Album 1
    Photo Album 2
    Photo Album 3
    Photo Album 4
    Photo Album 5
    Photo Album 6
    -Videos
    Video Album 1
    Video Album 2
    -Blog
    -Contact

    As you can see there are many photo albums, and most of the half decent standard templates tht come with RW, don't seem to be able to handle more than 2 or so sub pages.

    How can I overcome this?

    Am I doing something wrong with having multiple photo albums?

    Any ideas/help appreciated.

    Thanks

    To clarify

    I am also a rapidweaver user,

    Not sure if im getting you here but you can drag pages into others in the left hand menu and they become a subpage of the page they have been dragged into.

    This is what I have done with my page (see sig) and it works well. I do have some problems up-loading video though, I haven´t been able to figure out what´s happening

    yeah, that's how i've created my 6 sub photo album pages within the main Photo Album parent page..

    but most of the templates don't display this correctly, or the nav links just end up spanning across rows which makes the site look ugly..

    i was just wondering if i am doing things right, cos most people have more than 4 or 5 photo album pages on their sites, and the navigation works perfectly.

    Ok i have a idea for you....

    open up page inspector and tick the box for 'hide from menu' for all your photo album pages then for your main photo page use a plug-in called collage to link to them all. it provides a different way of navigating easily.
