Nav Bar issue - add a level impact on top

Recommended Posts


Hi there


I am having trouble with the nav bar and levels.  I understand you can't go down 3 levels as per other posts however, I have a problem when I add a level to a parent/top level. 


When adding a page to a top level, the top page is non "clickable" i.e you can't get to it. To get over the issue I have had to add the subject page as a sub page. Does that make sense?


I can't get a image to show you and as the site isn't published yet so not sure how I can show the problem. Site is (jogging-explained.com)


Can you point me to a post that deals with this or advise what I am doing wrong? 


I have other Pageline sites and not had this problem so know I am doing something wrong but can't find it.

We do not have access to your site. However, the issue you're having isn't an issue but how the NavBar has been designed. When you add child items to a menu, the parent menu item will longer be a menu item that is clickable taking you to that page. Instead when clicked, will open up the sub menu, this is how NavBar is intended to work, as it is based on the Bootstrap NavBar.


If you do not have this on any of your other sites, this is because you're not using the NavBar but instead using the NavClassic section. I recommend you to goto PageLines > Drag & Drop > Header and replace NavBar with NavClassic.

      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.

      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

      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 have the WHP6 theme (not sure if I needed it). But heres my question....I want to change the font in the navigation bar and it doesn't give me that option. I also want to change the size of the nav bar (height).
