After I install an app, do I have to manually edit configuration files to get that app to show up in the menu?
Yep, in Waldorf you go to:
Or Settings>Openbox>Menu GUI
There's a thread on the #! forums of how to do it. Really easy, takes 2 secs.
You should pm a moderator to move this post I suppose, to support section
Moved to correct forum.
walterbyrd please note the PM you now have ... you can access it from your Profile
If you build it, they will come...

Don't forget the Alt+F3 alt menu, which does not need to be manually updated after installing an app.
While manually updating the #! menu is pretty easy, you may also consider uxdgmenu by ju1ius. This is an auto-updating pipe menu that was originally written for the *box WMs but is now available for many WMs. I use it and love it.
EDIT: I said that it's a pipe menu, but it will also generate a root menu if you want it to. I am using 2 pipe menus from uxdgmenu within my original #! root menu - applications and recent files.
