Secondary Navigation

Recommended Posts

I would like to add a secondary Navigation Menu in the Header region. It needs to be inside the header area and its placement at the top right.

Here are some examples:

http://www.wfp.org/

http://www.yosemiteconservancy.org/

Can this be done? If so I have no idea where to begin. Any help is appreciated.

how about taking one "brandnav" along with a logo on the top and adding a second "nav classic" below?

I agree with basmati's suggestion. Brandnav is placed on the top right corner so you can use that.

Yeah, I had discovered this just before you replied. Now how to style this section. What are the CSS codes for styling this section? I looked through the docs and don't find a short list of all CSS elements.

You’ll need to use Custom CSS (in Site Options > Custom Code > Custom CSS). CSS that changes the style of a page element consists of two parts: the selector and the attribute.

Selector: Used to select the page element you want to change (in this case, the page element you want to change is your brandnav).

Attribute: Property that determines what kind of change you want (you’re changing the brandnav, so the attributes you want to use include link color, background color, etc.).

To find the selector for brandnav, you'll need to use Firebug (or Chrome Development tools). To learn how to use Firebug for CSS customizations, please read and follow these instructions: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/Custom_CSS.

For help with the link attributes, please see these instructions: http://w3schools.com/css/css_link.asp

Thanks basmati & catrina for your input. I have found the w3schools link particularly useful and have it bookmarked.

I was wondering if you can change a value for an individual menu item. For example have all text to be White on a grey background except for one item that would need black text on a white background.

I have seen an example of this but can't find the website to look at how they did it. Anyone seen this before? If so any idea on how to do the same?

Stephen, yes you can select a particular menu item, but you can also create a class for each menu item in Appearance > Menus.

Click Screen Options on the top right then tick the box for CSS Classes.

When you add or edit any menu item, you'll now see where you can place a unique identifier like mymenu3a, b, c, etc. Anything you like.

Then use that CSS class you create to style the individual menu item.

I was trying to style the specific menu item by first finding the Menu ID and then adding specific CSS to the custom code area. This is what I tried but it hasn't worked as yet:

.nav #menu-item-76 a {color: blue;background-color: white;}

Rob, thanks for your suggestion. I will give it a try also and post my results here later.

Rob, thank you again. I have been able to make minor adjustments using the class selector. I need to read more to get the styling just the way I want it.

OK, so I am running into a problem. I am able to effect just the background color and font weight but not the font color. Here are the steps I took:

1. Added class "donate" to the menu item I want changed.

2. This is the code I entered to define the class:


  .donate {

    display: block;

    text-decoration: none;

    color: white;

    font-weight: bold;

    background: orange;

  }

It seems that the color definition for #brandnav overrides any color I define in my class. I don't understand the problem here.

Hi Danny,

Sorry about that. I am developing locally and also at the SA site: http://www.missionprovidence.org.za. I just updated the remote site with the same content as on the development box, still no change for font color.

Hi Stephen,

You target the menu item like this:


.donate a {
color: white;
}[/CODE]

      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,

      Hi!

      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!
