Multiple Simple Navs


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi,

 

Before a recent update (Wordpress/DMS?), I'd set up to use multiple simple navs on my website - one in the header and two in the footer. Each were assigned a custom menu I'd created by using the front end edit selection. 

 

Now this isn't possible because of updates and it's broken my set-up. I can no longer assign each simple nav with its own custom menu, it's a global one set in the back end menu option.

 

Is there a way to recreate / overwrite this so I can assign multiple navs in the same site? I know I could use widgets and custom menus, but I'd prefer to return to what I had before if possible.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

Iain

Hi Iain,

 

So before the update you were able to assign different menus to the Simple Nav and now this isn't the case ?

What update are you referring to, a Wordpress update, a DMS update ?

 

Because, I have just this moment, added two Simple Nav sections to my template and assigned them with different menus. Each menu displayed without any issue.

Hi Danny,

 

Thanks for replying. Yes, I had 3 Simple Navs set up, each with different menus assigned. Then I installed an update (I'm not sure if this was DMS or WP that caused it) and now I can't seem to individually assign a menu to each nav. 

 

Your example is exactly what I'm trying to do (and did do before) but now can't for some reason.

 

I'm all up-to-date, running WP 3.6 and DMS 1.0.2 (using a child theme). 

 

Can I ask, how did you assign each Simple Nav with it's own menu? Before, I could do this from the DMS edit window from the front end, but now there isn't an option to do so, only a styling class box.

Instead I now have to go to Appearance > Menus > Manage Locations and assign here. Although there's only one 'master' box.
