Parent link being changed to #m1 and child menus only showing in dropdown after clicking parent.

Recommended Posts


When I add pages separately, all the links work. If I make two items "children" of the first in the Wordpress menu manager, then the link of the parent item gets changed to #m1 and no longer links to the parent page as intended. Also, the two child menu items do show up in a drop down menu, but only after you click on the parent menu item, not with a simple mouseover.

Hi, This is because you're using the NavBar section which is based on Twitter Bootstrap navigation design. Where you access drop down menus via a click instead of a hover action. If you prefer to access your drop down menus and have the parent link clickable to a URL, you will need to replace the NavBar with the NavClassic section. You can do this by logging into your Wordpress Admin Dashbaord > PageLines > Drag and Drop > Header.

Great, that worked. I don't think I would have worked that out myself. However, when I use NavClassic or BrandNav how do I make changes to the theme of the menu or remove the search bar and such? It seems that the "Navbar" settings under "Site Settings" don't apply to NavClassic or BrandNav.

I had the same question as Newbie and you answered it partially. I know I can use CSS to change the color of the NavClassic menu, change the position, etc. But how can I add the menu items I lost when I switched from the BrandNav to NavClassic? And can I put my logo on NavClassic like on the BrandNav? Thanks.

addendum: I see now that this is the PageLines lite forum. I actually paid for Framework, so I will ask in the paid forums.

Hi -- followup question: Is it possible to make the Fixed Navigation Bar behave with a mouseover dropdown, rather than on-click?

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
      Best regards,

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:

      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
