i have created a page "services". with many many sub-pages.

i want to turn off the drop down menu. when visitors click on "services" and the page opens up, i want the sub-pages to be listed in the left column.

i am trying to mimic this http://www.creditcardprocessing.com/credit-card-processing/ecommerce-credit-card-processing/

how can i achieve this?

i have tried to unchecked the"Enable Drop Down Navigation?" in the admin, but it has no effect. it still acts as a drop down menu,

Hi there, it depends which nav bar you're using in order to how you turn off the drop down. In Classic Nav its in Pagelines>Site Options>Header and footer. In the new navbar its in Pagelines>Site Options>Navbar. You can check which nav you're using in the drag and drop page in the header section.

You'll be able to hide the navbar on the page you have the side menu, or possibly deactivate/hide the sub menu using css on that page only.

You have a menu in appearance>widgets that you can use to display the pages in the sidebar. Again you may wish to style this using css as it will only appear as a list of standard text links.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

regarding "You have a menu in appearance>widgets that you can use to display the pages in the sidebar. Again you may wish to style this using css as it will only appear as a list of standard text links."

by the method you suggested the "pages" widget in the sidebar will show all the sections of the website. i just want it to show the sub-pages of the service category. if i want not show other things,i have to exclude so many many sections 1 by 1. there must be a better way. please advise. maybe a paid extension???

i see a widget called "custom menu". it is user friendly, and i can easily check box the page i want to show. but the issue is. if i add this widget to the primary side bar, it will show on all pages. and this is not good. for example when i am in the products section, which are many sub-pages, i need to show it's sub-pages in the column. and using the method i mentioned, i dont have page by page control. is there another way? to have page by page control?

Hi,

If you wish to put a menu in the sidebar of your page, you can do so with a widget. If you wish for this menu widget to display only on specific page(s). Then you can use the plugin Widget Logic, which allows you to display widgets on a per post/page basis.

thank you . i tried this. but this still does not help me.

i need to be able to control the "custom menu" widget on a page by page basis.

and be able to tell the "custom menu" widget which menu to display, on a page by page basis.

to see what i mean, add the "custom menu" widget to the primary sidebar, and you will see that it gives you an option for to select a menu.

on the open page i would choose menu A, on the services pages i would choose Menu B, ..so on and so forth....

that's what i am trying to achieve.

Your sub-pages should be children of your Service page. There is this Child Page Navigation plugin in the WordPress repository or you can try out the function in this gist that will display a child page menu for the parent page above the primary sidebar (or you can change the hook to use it where you want).

Hope that helps.

Hey Ellen, thanks for your suggestions, Eliteqs, let us know if these would work for you.

If they don't and you're unable to find a suitable solution you might want to consider getting a custom section built to do this, in which case feel free to check out our pagelines pros at www.pagelines.com/pros/

      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!
