Create link hierarchies in Drupal 6

Start here:

Ok, Framework 2.3, which is set to release in about a week, will fully support Dynamic Persistent Menu. Then will allow secondary links to be shown upon hovering over the primary link.

However, to do this, you must first go to Admin>Site Building>Menus then go to the settings tab at the top. The source for secondary links must be set to 'Primary Links' also. This essentially bypasses the real secondary links menu, and instead uses the hierarchy set within Primary Links. You must set your new 'Secondary Links' under the 'Primary Links' menu by going to 'Edit' on each item and changing the parent element to the primary link you wish for it to be under. In Drupal 6, you can simply drag your desired 'Secondary Links' to the right a bit to nest it under a 'Primary Link'

This basic functionality should also work without the Dynamic Persistent Menu module and on all current versions of framework.

If you want to show the lower-level links on hover then you need something like this, the Nice Menus module.

More work remains on this one...
