In sharepoint 2007 we were able to create subsites and pages that were visable in the top menu as a drop down. Is this possible in 2010?

I have had a look but cannot find where to enable this feature, New pages or Subsites are visable in the quick launch / tree view, but I want the subsites to be visbale on the top menu.

Enable the publishing infrastructure feature at the site collection level. Then configure under Navigation.

I have it working on my test VM without having had to edit the Master Page. I created a category with a sub-link.

You were correct it worked fine - for subsites, anyway of doing this for pages as well as sites?

Or is this not good practice?

Did you create the new page in "Pages" or in "Site Pages"? Try the "Pages" library.

Make sure you Check In the page as a major version.

Also, in your sub-sites, make sure you configure Navigation to show pages as well.

So to summarize:

Publishing turned on for both parent and sub-site(s)
On the parent site's Navigation, enable sub-sites and pages in the Global Navigation (checkboxes)
You should now see the sub-site in the Global Navigation
On the sub-site, create a new publishing page
Publish the page
On the sub-site's Navigation, enable pages being listed (checkbox) and inherit the Global Navigation from the parent site
You should now see the drop-down navigation in both sites
