Recommended Posts

I would like to know how to make several different secondary navigations show in the sidebar or wrap that I can make different for each page.   I can only seem to get the same menu to show on all the pages.  Similar to child pages but more custom.

Hi Maureen 

 

Please can you provide a link to your site. 

 

Thanks 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

http://thomashoben.com/alcohol-treatment/alcohol-abuse-services/

has a sidebar menu that should be "services"

 

http://thomashoben.com/resources/schedule-a-consultation/

has a sidebar selected in the page meta settings as "Consultation"  

 

But both pages are defaulting to the sidebar that I chose and set up in the: Appearance / Widgets / Secondary Sidebar / Custom Menu

 

I was under the impression that the Pagelines meta settings "Select Secondary Navigation Menu" at the bottom of each page overrode the setting in the Appearance / Widgets / Secondary Sidebar / Custom Menu

 

Help on how to set up multiple custom secondary menus would be awesome.

 

Thank you.

The "Select Secondary Navigation Menu" in PageLines Meta Settings allows you to select which custom menu appears in the Secondary Nav section (which is activated in the Header template in Drag & Drop), not the Custom Menu widget that is in placed in the sidebar. If you need to adjust which Custom Menu is used in the sidebar on each page, please use the Widget Logic plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widget-logic/


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

I must not understand Widget Logic.  I can only add " is_page('schedule-a-consultation') " in the space provided  on the Appearance / Widgets / Secondary Sidebar / Custom Menu.  I do not see a way to make the different custom menus display on different pages.  It seems that the menu I choose will display on all the pages.

 

I am not sure this plugin solves my issue.  I want to be able to put different custom menus in the sidebar on different pages.  Not the same custom menu on all pages. 

 

More guidance is greatly appreciated.

Hi Maureen

 

This should help

 


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.

Thank you.  I just realized that I could add the custom menu more that once in the sidebar.  That makes since now.

      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.
