Thanks for the response, putting all of categories under one would be fine for the top navigation bar as long as it left the side navigation bar showing all categories.
I would also be fine with setting the top bar to just links to certain categories as well if that is possible. I am not a programmer, but I have seen post where a small piece of php code is added to the top.phtml file that counts to a certain number, say “5″ and then stops listing any additional categories after that. That would be ideal for me, but I will take whatever fix you can give me.
Thanks again for directly responding. I really like your clean designs and the slider is must. Just let me know what I need to do next.
