Go to Dashboard > PlatformPro > Header And Nav and look for "[b]Drop Down Navigation - Nav and BrandNav Section[/b]" and there, you check "[b]Enable Drop Down Navigation?[/b]" and click Save Options.

http://chanceonbeauty.co/uslugi/cosmetologiya/ samle url: every secondary menu item has a child page and drop down is enebled (at least for main navigation it works). The thing is I need drop-downs for sec-nav. Thank you))

Dropdown functionality for the secondary menu is not featured. You would have to use a plugin or custom code to achieve this.

I'm not certain how a secondary menu can be turned into a dropdown menu, but you might want to look into a plugin (however, even then that might require some code, as well).

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

well, here are some but where exactly do I have to enter the code without breaking the site? The Idea is to have DIFFERENT secondary navigation for DIFFERENT posts/pages (right underneath the callout/carousel section and above content section). http://shailan.com/2773/dropdown-menu-widget-template-tag-usage-explained/ http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/dropdown-menus/ Most likely I would replace carousel with this http://web-argument.com/2011/03/17/accordion-image-menu-v-3-1-less-code-more-flexibility/ but using it as widget doesn't allow different menus (or I'm missing smth). I definitely need a hint as to where allocate that php code. Thanx

This would require custom code, I would recommend contacting one of the PageLines Pros - http://www.pagelines.com/pros/

Please search our forums, before posting!

Danny is correct. However, I think you're misunderstanding secondary nav. Its purpose is not to provide a second tier of drop down options. Rather, it is to provide greater specificity within small groupings. So, if you have something like an About Us page, you specify on that page a secondary nav called "About" which contains links to things like "Management", "Directors", "Company Info" and "Careers". Those do not need to be drop down. Each of them might have their own secondary nav. Management, for example - another page listing a top management team, might also have a secondary nav called "About-Mgmt" and that could list "Senior Executives", "Junior Exectives" and "Division Heads" each with their own page. Essentially, through page creation, using secondary nav, you can create a hierarchy without the need for drop downs. I must also point out that because secondary nav appears below the primary menu, having drop downs there will most assuredly result in them dropping over or below important content. Neither of the plugins you cited have anything to do with secondary navigation. They deal solely with primary navigation - essentially the menu in your header. Since we already provide drop down capability there, both those plugins are redundant.

Rangelone, you are right, they focus on primary navigation still they declared it's possible to put them into any place using the bloody codes still trying to do that doesn't help much. BTW I have tried to repeat the tutorial to create a 'GlobalNav' custom section http://www.pagelines.com/docs/custom-sections and it didn't work((. Here's the recreated code from the tutorial: 'Creates a Global nav Section in Base', 'workswith' => array('main','content','header'), 'icon' => CHILD_IMAGES . '/icon-pullquote.png' ); parent::__construct($name, $id, $settings); } function section_template() { ?>
'main-nav', 'container' => null, 'container_class' => '', 'depth' => 3, 'theme_location'=>'globalnav', 'fallback_cb'=>'nav_fallback') ); } ?>
__('Global Navigation', 'pagelines' ) ) ); } } /* End of section class - No closing tag needed */

And here is functions.php // Sections should be named: section.[your section name].php and placed in the sections folder. function base_sections(){ /* Your custom sections get registered in here... PageLines Register Section Arguments: 1. Section Class Name, 2. Directory name (or filename if in root of 'sections' folder), 3. Init Filename (if different from directory name), 4. Section setup and variable array */ pagelines_register_section('BasePullQuote', 'pullquote', null, array('child' => true) ); pagelines_register_section('BaseSidebar','sb_base', null, array('child' => true) ); pagelines_register_section('PageLinesUberNav', 'ubernav', null, array('child' => true) ); pagelines_register_section('BaseAccImageManu', 'aimagemenu', null, array('child' => true) ); register_nav_menus( array( 'globalnav' => __('Global Navigation', 'pagelines' ) ) ); }
