Swapping the Style of the Secondary and Tertiary Navigation

Recommended Posts

ratputin

I have been tasked with rebuilding a website to "mirror" the design/navigation of a site that has been hacked (I did not build the original). The old site is http://millerla.com and the new site build is at http://millerlandscapearchitecture.com. The creds for the new build are: Username: Test.User Password: eub=Z5m&+38v791A&3 The behavior of the secondary and tertiary nav of the old site navigation is exactly opposite of the behavior in Pagelines. I would like to "swap" the style. At first glance, this seems like it should work but I have run into a few roadblocks that I could use some help with. 1. How is the dropdown menu associated with the primary navigation? 2. Where are the CSS classes for the tertiary navigation? Any other thoughts or suggestions are welcome. TIA Rat.

Okay. Problem as I see it: the menu you created originally was quite well customized (I like it btw). You have a straight forward Classic Nav with drop down, but it's going to a child menu item, Secondary Nav (straight row of links), then, you have that single row menu dropping down for each menu. So you'd need to do quite a bit of customization and re-coding. I'm confident you're up to the task. I'd suggest using the Nav Classic. You would install and activate Base Theme. Copy the folder for the Nav Classic from /wp-content/themes/pagelines/sections and edit the code there to allow the first drop down child to go in one single line and that each of those items may have the drop down list associated with it, rather than just the parent. Not quite a lite bit of coding, I dare say. Alternatively you can visit http://www.cssplay.co.uk/menus/ where you may view page source for any menu you like and use that CSS To find the CSS for the Nav Classic, you may use Firebug or Chrome's Inspection tools. Personally, I prefer Firebug.
