Secondary Navi Does Not Appear On All Pages

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I just realized that my secondary navigation does appear on the home page only.

This navi contain the categories and I allocated it in the "Morefoot" section (in "Drag & Drop"), but it's the same when I allocate it in the "Footer" section.

 

I checked the "Page Setup" in "Page Options" for all pages (Blog, Archive, Category, Search, Tags, Author Posts, 404) : nowhere is the checkbox "Hide Secondary Navi" active.

 

That's amazing because the carousel, which is allocated in the "Morefoot" section as well, does show up on all pages!

 

In case you would like to see it, here it appears (just on top of the carousel): http://mobiwatch.de/

and here it doesn't, the carousel only: http://mobiwatch.de/zubehor/

 

What the hell is this?

Does anybody has an ideal why this happens???

 

Thanks in advance!

Is there a secondary nav menu selected under Page Options > Archive > Page Setup? (At the bottom where it says "Select Secondary Nav Menu")

Dear Catrina,

 

no, it wasn't selected. 

But now that I selected it, nothing changed ;))

There's still no secnondary nav bar on all other pages than the home page ...

The Secondary Navigation is not a global menu like NavBar, Nav Classic or Fixed Nav, it is a menu for a per page/post basis and is to be used for child pages or a custom menu you created.


Therefore, the Secondary Navigation not appearing on all pages, is how the section was designed and is working as intended.

Dear Danny,

 

thanks, I see ...

Is there another method to fix the second nav on all pages somewhere at the bottom?

I would recommend looking through the forum to see how others might have done the same thing as you may need to use custom CSS to accomplish this.

@mackenzie,  

 

I did so before I opened this thread. But as I couldn't find anything concerning second nav bar and it's appearance on all pages, I tried this way to get this info ;))

I'm not sure if this will make a difference, but have you tried deactivating all active non-PL plugins to see if the secondary nav shows up on pages where it's absent?

Dear Catrina,

 

no, that dind't make any difference.

But I had the idea to use a plugin and I found a simple widget which is displaying the categories in the sidebar.

Not exactly what I wanted to have, but better than nothing ...  ;))

Hi,

 

To clarify, as Danny correctly points out, the Secondary Nav section is intended to be used on a page or post basis, not globally, as a Morefoot is.  There's no global setting for it, so using it in the Morefoot is simply a bad practice unless you can change it on a page level basis.  Since there are special pages which don't have an edit option, you have to select page templates for these, provided one exists. You could, therefor, only select a Secondary Nav menu for the Blog section, or Category pages.  You will still fail to see it on every page or post.

 

There are alternative ways of creating a menu that may be applied in the morefoot.  One is the universal sidebar, to which you may place a text widget and align a series of links in a row.

 

Another way, if you want the menu stacked vertically, is to add a Custom Menu widget to one of the Morefoot column sidebars.

      Hey Guys,
      Having some issues with the dropdowns for the Navi in DMS. For some reason I can't have any more than 2 levels in the dropdown. The cursor is hovering over RPAS Training (and the arrow to indicate more is visible) but no matter what browsers, it never shows up. Also inspecting the HTML shows that the additional fields are not there.
      I have inspected the PHP and cannot see anything that is limiting the number of levels. Any assistance to get the additional levels showing would be great.

      Hi guys. Just now trying out Platform 5. I like the reletive simplcity of the new interface but there are things I'm used to in DMS that I'm not seeing yet in 5. Is there a good manual, documentation, video series about some of the basics?
      In particular, I've got a simple navigation menu, created the standard way in WP menus section with several top level parents, then 3-4 children menu items below a couple parent items. Have them moved to the right to create the standard parent-child relationship but all I see on the page is the parent level items - no dropdown!. So I changed themes from Platform5 to the standard 2015 default theme and now I see absolutely no menu at top, except for the mobile (hamburger?) icon.
      In DMS, one had Navi and Navbar, etc sections and each would work differently and give different results. How do you work the menu system in 5? And how get different results ?
      thanks

       I have setup the Navi (content width) to show the burger icon for my menu system (desk and mobile).
      It works great..displays only the Burger..BUT ONLY when on the Default Menu (which is not a real menu, but some random selection of pages).
      As soon as I select the MAIN Menu in the Navi settings it suddenly displays all of the menu items...which I don't want.
      The domain is not pointed yet..it is at 162.219.161.131

      null When I tested Search using the search field in Navi, it throws the error as shown in pastebin: http://pastebin.com/DJ079bmy
      Is there a fix for this? If there is no fix, can you please tell me how to disable search in Navi?
      Thanks,
      Bruce
