The Tigra menu is our custom menu Nav bar at the very top of our posts and pages. It is not part of the WordPress publishing package. Starting with WordPress release 3.2, we had to truncate the menu dropdown to a limit of 2 items. This is because the new  page header layout code contains JavaScript functionality which interfered with Tigra functionality. When a chain of Tigra dropdown menu items was long enough to superimpose over the page header area, the linked items were visible, but no longer worked. Since Tigra submenu items duplicated links that are already available in the sidebar on the right side of site pages, the solution for now is short dropdowns.

There are still a total of 11 Summitlake ‘Departments,’ and you can navigate to or from any of them using the black Tigra menu nav bar. The longest dropdown is now two items long (‘HTML’ contains ‘Humor’ and ‘Recipes’). Most departments now have a single dropdown, ‘Articles’, a quick and easy way to see a complete list of each department’s posts at a glance. I reviewed sidebar links in all departments to make sure links to major features are displayed. Remember, as discussed in our Site Nav article, you can always browse for content by Article, Archive (by month), Category, Tag or plain old sidebar links.
