Global / Sitewide Secondary Nav Menu

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm trying to set up a global/sitewide secondary navigation menu. I used to have one when running on an earlier version (platform pro) but I've switched to the latest Pagelines framework and can't see how to do it. Here's the site. I've used Crackbar for the main menu. http://www.modeltrainsonline.co.uk/

What I want is a nice simple secondary nav under it with just a few select pages on it that visitors can use as a handy reference.

I've dragged in the SecondaryNav element into my header in Drag & Drop. I've created a custom menu that I want to use throughout the site called "reference", but...

Where do I tell pagelines which menu to use for the secondary nav??? It's driving me nuts. I can see how to specify it on specific pages. And I can see that I can have pagelines use child pages, but I don't want that... I want to use a specific menu sitewide.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Many thanks... from a baffled Pagelines fan!

Justin

Hi Justin,

The Secondary Nav, isn't a global navigation menu but a menu that displays either a unique menu via the Wordpress Menu or using child pages on a per post/page basis.

If you prefer to have a global nav, I would recommend you use either the NavBar or NavClassic.

If the secondary menu on Framework cannot be set globally, what does Page Option Setup > Various Pages > Page Setup > Select Secondary Nav Menu setting actually do? Nothing?

Seems like this should set the secondary menu for any posts that don't have it specifically designated in the post Meta - but I couldn't get this to work for posts.

e.g. If I have a menu selected on the Page Option Setup page and leave the secondary nav menu in the meta on a given post as '-SELECT-' - no secondary menu appears.

The PageLines > Page Options > Blog, setting the Secondary Nav here will only configure your secondary nav for your Blog Page Template. Like I mentioned above, the Secondary Navigation section is not a global nav and wasn't designed to be one.

If you wish to set a global nav use either Fixed Navigation, NavBar or Nav Classic.

      I think I may have installed pagelines pro incorrectly, and then used features incorrectly. I installed first platforms framework theme and then the child, thinking I could do setup for child later. I tried to set up a background image, and tried custom css feature in pagelines dashboard. I had mistakes in my css, and just thought that if I deleted the info in the css custom feature in pagelines dashboard that the new information would overwrite the old info. The background image didn't respond at all, probably because I didn't have the child directory renamed. I then tried to use the LSS plugin to create css and added more css, possibly, somewhere -sigh-. I never did change the background image and get it placed properly. I used a workaround and in nested containers I placed a background image which worked well enough, so I moved on to try to create my nav bar/ menu bar. When I go to the Menus panel, there is NO area where I can place a menu on a page. I have read and reread and re- re- reread the instructions for placing a menu. I've used the pagelines editor to place a menu, however only HOME shows up. I've been at this for many hours. I've since uninstalled all of my pagelines items and reinstalled, thinking that it would restore all my changes to default, but no, it is still all there, with all my unresolved issues. I am completely at a loss as to what to do next.

      How to make the Impulse menu sticky?
      Here is a site that seems like it is doing just that: http://www.manhattanperiodontist.com/
      Here is the site I am working on: http://boeriu.digitalvector.com/ 
      I have no problem showing the menu at the bottom, but when scrolling up it does not stick.  I tried to add Nav Pro menu but when I do that, it just shows on top and no matter what I try is not working as I want it to.
      Any suggestions?

      1) Toggle menu on mobile devices does not work properly, combination Chrome 56.0.2924.87 with Android 6.0.1

      2) Mobile / Default Menu > Set the primary/default navigation for your site. This will be used in the pop out mobile menu and as the default in navigation sections. Does not work.

      We are building a long-page scrolling site with Pagelines 5. Our menu is made with # links that go to a container's unique ID, e.g. container_ux7al6g
      This works, but it doesn't look great in the menu. Is it possible to assign a 'nice' # link, e.g. /#solutions ? 
      We used to do this in the DMS2 platform through a workaround, but that doesn't seem to be possible now. 
      Any suggestions?

      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.

      Thanks.
