How to create HOME menu navigation button in EcoPro?

Question

Posted · Report post

I imported the demo content (thank you for making that available, PageLines!), but I need to create a HOME menu button, as I fear many people won't know to click the logo in the upper left corner to return to the home page. Please advise how to create a home menu button to correlate with my current home page. BTW, I'm not a programmer, so I hope this doesn't involve coding. *fingers crossed* Thanks! :)

cmunns- The change I suggested was an edit to the _nav.php, not the database. I tried the NAVT plug-in you suggested. Maybe it's capable of doing what I want, but I found it very unintuitive to use. Anyways, I found a much easier solution to what I was trying to do: list the pages from left to right instead of right to left. I thought the php script writing the header navigation was calling the pages in reverse. After much investigation, I realized that this was not so. The list items are being called in the proper order, it's just that they have the float:right property. Simply adding this code to the custom code box in the theme options will "reverse" the order.

	#nav ul li {
	float: left;
	}

Nope, just manually add a new page named "Home" and then in your WordPress Settings, set "Home" as the front page. That should do the trick. Thanks, Bryan

Thanks for the reply, Bryan. I have the Feature page already created and set as what I want for the home page. Is there a way to make that the home page...even somehow linking the new page created that is entitled Home page? Thanks again. :) Dena

Oh, wow -- actually, somehow, that worked!!! The HOME navigation button does indeed default to the current home page, without doing anything in the settings. I don't understand it, but I'm thrilled! I'm lovin' this theme. Thanks again!

I was also wondering how to get the homepage's link on the top navigation. I found the culprit's code in the [eco pro theme dir]/library/_nav.php file. It's a small file. You will find this code near the end of it:

wp_list_pages('exclude='.$frontpage_id.$forum_exclude.'&depth=3&title_li=&link_before=<span>&link_after=</span>');?>

Just remove the $frontpage_id. from it and that's it! Now if someone could just tell me how to reverse the displayed page order of the navigation so that they are displayed from left to right..

There are actually a few plug-ins that do this, much easier than actually changing the ordering in the PHPMyAdmin db. I believe the plug-in is called NAVT
