Thanks for the suggestion. After looking at this harder I’m going to abandon the idea of using the blog-post template throughout the site. I’m going to go with Genesis Simple Menus plug-in. It’s a bit of a pain (and will involve training people) to go through and create/edit and select a secondary menu per page or per custom post type. But the alternative — creating redirects or else using a hook to bring in a custom post-meta that has to be updated with every addition of a custom post tye — was the greater of two evils.
Or, I might decide on something else.
The Genesis Subpages as Secondary Menu plugin has been updated to version 1.5. This is now compatible with Genesis 1.9.1. The issue was that Genesis 1.9 changed the way that primary and secondary menus were enabled (there was a checkbox in 1.8.2, the checkboxes were removed in 1.9). This is a nice plug-in that creates secondary menus as text (vs dropdowns) based on subpages. It’s a nice plugin to enable useability across all types of devices. The drop-down menus just don’t work sometimes….
