Drop-down Menu
The Metro Brisbane theme has a multi-level drop-down menu. There are two ways to create the drop-down menu.
1) When you create hierarchical pages, the drop-down menu will show up automatically in the header navigation.

2) You can manually define the header links using the custom menu. To do it, first, click on the “Menus” link found under the “Appearance” tab in WP admin. Then follow the instruction on the page to add your custom menu. This feature only works with WP 3+.

This is another feature that will be added to all my future themes.

There is a featured content section below the header link. This feature is built in using the Featured Content Gallery (FCG) plugin. Please download the latest version and follow the instruction found in “Readme.txt” to do the setup.

If you do not want to show this feature, just don’t install the plugin.

By default, after you install the theme, the blog title and description are showing the Arial font.

You can change the font style by following this instruction:

– Extract and open the PSD file in the Photoshop/ImageReady/Gimp/PaintShop program
– Change the title and description using your desired font (you are free to modify the header image if you want)
– Save the image using this name: bg_header.jpg
– Upload the image to your server in the “/styles/default/” folder

– Go to the options page of the Photographic Film theme under “Appearance -> Photographic Film”
– Find “Theme Style” under “Layout Setting”
