Limiting Menu Choices for Drupal Content Creators

,

One challenge for any Drupal site is making the interface simpler for the “end admin”, that is to say the person who will ultimately run the site, but is not a developer or Drupal guru. In general, you can turn most things on and off, but the menu system does not allow you to hide […]

Superfish Menu Block Hidden Behind Following Block in Fusion Theme

,

I have nothing especially original to add here — this page is mostly meant as a bookmark for my memory. The fix for a vertical menu is slightly (but only slightly) different from the solution outlined in the official docs, so here it is.
