    So, basically WordPress has widgets as well as custom menus. What happens if you want to have cool “widget stuff” in your nav menu? Instead of mucking about with extending the menu API I thought that it might be interesting to see what happens if you use a widget area as a dropdown “menu”. I was relatively easy to create a “normal” widget area and then use javascript to completely change it into a drop down menu. Was wondering what people thought about this idea. Have you seen it in the wild?

    Very cool indeed. I can’t remember seeing anything like this in the wild. Good work!

    Thanks Ryan! Hopefully I’ll be able to tighten it up and in corporate it into my next theme. Honestly, I can’t wait to use it on my own site 🙂
