Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm a beginner user and have checked through the documentation but can't see how to add a link in the top navigation of my site to a special page - the blog.

See http://emilyredward.com/

I can't find the url or reference to the special page to link to when creating the menu. Help would be very much appreciated!

Hi,

First thing I recommend is for you to change your permalinks structure so that your URL's look cleaner. To do this, read the documentation here - http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Choosing_your_permalink_structure

I recommend the Postname option.

Once you have changed your permalink structure.

Go to Wordpress admin dashboard > Appearance > Menus and create your custom Menu, from here you can add whatever page you like, including your main blog page. For more information on how to do this, go here - http://codex.wordpress.org/Appearance_Menus_Screen

Now that you have created your custom Menu, go to PageLines > Site Options > NavBar and in the setting called "NavBar and Fixed NavBar Menu", then in the drop down menu for "Standard NavBar - Select Menu", select your newly created custom menu.

Save settings, and if you refresh your website now, it should display your custom Menu. You can add more pages to your menu, by visiting the Appearance > Menu.


Please search our forums, before posting!

Thanks a huge help! I realised my issue was not setting the "posts" page in Reading Settings.

      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
       
      Thanks!

      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!

      What is the equivalent to DMS2's PostNav section in PL5?  I'm looking for PREVIOUS/NEXT buttons that show the associated post names for the previous and next posts.
      Thanks,
      J.D.
