Brandnav Depth

Recommended Posts


Okay, so I've read through threads and haven't seen any answers yet, so here's my attempt.

I am trying to increase the number of submenus in my Brandnav. Here's the steps I have taken:

1. Copied -> \wp-content\themes\PageLines\sections\BrandNav

2. Pasted -> \wp-content\plugins\PageLines-Customize\BrandNav

3. Edited -> \wp-content\plugins\PageLines-Customize\BrandNav\Sections.PHP

4. Changed -> depth => 3 to depth =>4

My menu doesn't display anything deeper than it previously did.

Can someone please help?

I have just followed the same steps and my BrandNav menu has a depth of 4, see image.


Please bear in mind that I had to float the BrandNav menu to the left so you could see the full depth of drop downs. Also, why do you want such a depth, anything more than 3 is really annoying to navigate and in my opinion looks really bad.

What is annoying is a matter of opinion. Whether I agree or disagree, it's my content manager's decision.

In any case, it's still not working.

Its not working as you have added your child BrandNav section to the wrong location. You have added to the PageLines Customisation plugin, if you wish to create a child section and are not using a child theme, then you add the child section to:


Once there, make the depth changes again and it should override.

Regarding my annoying comment, what I was referring to was that if your menu item names are longer than ten words (for example) your drop down menu's are going to be overflowing on your site.

As this is a customisation, we will not be able to provide support if you choose to make this change. Any CSS issues, you will need to address yourself.

      Hi -
      Pulling my hair out over here, and would love an assist!
      Site I am building, http://www.livkundalini.com/home, has a problem with the submenu items in the nav not appearing. 
      If anyone wants to see what the Nav should look like, feel free to look in the footer on the left hand side.
      Have tried disabling Pagelines and using the twentyseventeen theme, but problem persists.
      Saw this error (pasted at the bottom of this post) displaying in the inspector, and saw discussion of Jetpack potentially being a culprit. Disabled Jetpack, but the problem persists.
      Had the hosting company even flush the server-side cache, but no avail.
      Any thoughts? Please? It's the only thing keeping me from launching this site!
      Many Thanks,

      http://731.34b.myftpupload.com/ this website is using the NavPro navigation in Platform 5. It has a lot of menu items, so it breaks to two lines when the window is sized down. What is the media query to make the navigation either a) switch to "mobile mode" at a higher width, or b ) expand the nav into two lines. Thanks

      Hi Everyone,
      I am trying to get a single navigation item to center. I am using a scroll menu in the navigation component of Impulse. I would like to have the item in the center of the page but it defaults right. I tried setting the item to center a few different ways and nothing is working. I added {
        display: inline-block;
        position: relative;
        text-align: center;
      but that didn't work...any help would be appreciated. Site is at http://vetpaw.org/new

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      I'm still "piercing the veil" of platform 5, with page navigation the current subject of interest. I worked with a few plugins (the most useful being Next Page Not Next Post) but I wanted to take a step back and start with an example - and see if I could get a bit of help "inside the beltway". 
      What I'm looking to do is substantially similar to the pagelines docs pages - see my annotated screenshots attached. At the top of a "child" page I want a link back to the "parent" page - and at the bottom of that "child" page I want to place a similar link to the "grandchild" page. At the bottom of each grandchild page I want there to be navigation "buttons" to sibling pages in the hierarchy. 
      "Next Page Not Next Post" handles what I'm expecting for "sibling" navigation, but I'm having a bit of trouble getting over the logistical hump of applying that functionality to my page "Template C" instance only. And per the attached examples, while researching how to solve this problem I see on the Pagelines site *itself* that the navigation elements are in place - and I especially like the oval button formatting of the sibling page navigation.
      So - really, my question is two-part:
      Are there plugins/code snippets/tutorials/threads here that show how Pagelines achieved their page hierarchy nagivation, and  Is there a tutorial (or advice from generous contributors here) on how to use the PHP templates to override the content portion of the page to add the navigation elements? Thanks in advance!
