1 & 2. In order to add social media icons to your NavBar you will require the help of a hook. I recommend you install the free plugin called ActionMap from the PageLines store.


3. The font of the navigation can be changed in the Typography settings.


4. To change one of the links, you will need to target that menu item (all menu items are given unique ids) and use custom CSS.


I have provided you with a link to our custom CSS documentation which should assist you.


If you're not comfortable with custom CSS or using hooks, I would suggest contacting one of our Pros, who will be able to assist you.

The ActionMap is a plugin that assist you in finding the correct location, it doesn't do anything other than that. Once you have find the correct hook location using Action map, you use this to create your hook.


In your code, you will need to most likely use this:



In order to find your menu's ID to style that particular menu, you need to use either Firebug or your browsers built-in web dev tools, see my image below as an example.



You can use the ID, in your code for example,


.menu-item-509 a {
background: red;
color: white;

      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 have an older site that was built using PageLines several years ago (prior to the release of DMS). I wanted to leverage some of the power of your new PL5 plugin but the theme prevents be from adding any generated custom sidebars to the theme (through the drag and drop interface) and does not allow me to add any PL5 sections/containers/etc to the header or footer. Is there any way to easily override that or am I stuck only using PL5 in the content areas of the site?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      How can you set the translations with platform5, the parts that are not in pages or posts? Texts and images…

      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.
