  1. Ooooh, thanks for those extra links, Slik Bonez! Going off to check them out.

    It seems to me that the Menu Editor is integral to v3, whereas BuddyPress is an add-on, so I would find it odd that it wouldn’t be integrated into WordPress.com. But here anything is possible, not probable.

  2. First of all, I was surprised to see you’ve switched to the dark version of this theme. How are you finding it in terms of readability?

    Very curious to see when the new “edit menu” module will be implemented on WordPress.com. Perhaps this is what Matt Thomas meant when he said “there’s more coming with the menu, but give us a few days”.

      I didn’t switch permanently. Sometimes I feel like clicking the button and rendering the theme dark for the night. I find this balck theme version to be very readbale, unlike most. It’s the color of the text that’s key to readbility.

      Re: What Matt Thomas said: I wasn’t aware of that remark. Maybe so. I can only hope so as the editor and I have issues. ;)

    • I am also excited to see if the “Menu Editor” will be added to WP.com but it might be like BuddyPress which hasn’t seen the light of day on WP.com. = (

      • @slikbonez
        I don’t know what it is or how to use it even if we do get it. That’s why I lack any excitement about the possible introduction of a “Menu Editor”.

        If you would be kind enough to explain what it is and how it will assist me and my readers in our blogging, then I’d love to hear it and I’m sure they would feel the same way. (HINT) :)

        • Hi TT, Sure I’ll try and explain to the best of my knowledge ;)

          From what I have seen and read the understanding I got was we will have control with how are page links will appear on our site (order wise) as well be able to create hyper links to other sites of choice. ( instead of using the nav hyper link workaround)

          Woo Themes made the product and donated their product to automattic and in return automattic staff modified the code to work and too blend in with the WP dashboard layout.

          Here is a article from the Woo Themes blog http://www.woothemes.com/2010/01/the-awesome-custom-woo-navigation/

          Also here is a video of the menu editor in action on WP 3.0 http://wpdevel.wordpress.com/2010/01/17/menu-management-ui/

        • Thanks so much for the links. I appreciate your sharing them. I have visited the site and read the information and watched the videos.
