Bespoke WP menu and sub-menu interface using jquery WordPress


I am asking for bids on this job.

I want a menu that can be organised using the WP default admin menu editor, and which is called into the header.php file... but i require a specific front end interface for the menu and sub menu which would require javascript (possibly query) and possibly using a custom call (instead of wp_nav_menu perhaps splitting it using something like this:

<?php if($post->post_parent)
$children = wp_list_pages("title_li=&child_of=".$post->post_parent."&echo=0"); else
$children = wp_list_pages("title_li=&child_of=".$post->ID."&echo=0");

if ($children && is_page()) { ?>
<ul id="subnav">
<?php echo $children; ?>
<?php } else { ?>
<?php } ?>


• Clicking a menu item which is a page link takes you to that page link
• Sub Menus are visible on click only (not on hover).
• Menu items with a drop-down sub-menu will not link anywhere when clicked (as clicking a menu item is used only to toggle the visibility of the sub-menu)
• Dropdown submenu items display horizontally in a box which slides down from the menu stretching the full width of the header... pushing all the page content below down as it slides out.
• Submenu slides back up (as does the page content beneath) when another submenu is activated before the new one slides down (pushing the page content back down with it)
• Current page menu item is highlighted and dropdown sub-menu for that menu item is visible by default on all child pages

Rough examples of the effect i want: (click Services & Info)

I have fair experience but still struggle with php and especially javascript. I've been googling various issues around this for 2 days and am yet to find a suitable solution.

These threads have been helpful though: (old)

Finally, no plugins if at all possible.

I think that covers it but let me know if more explanation is needed.
