Replace Navbar?

Recommended Posts


I'm not a big fan of the navbar built into Pagelines.... so, I did some research and found one that I really like.  It's called UberMenu (http://http://wpmegamenu.com/) and it exactly what I'm looking for.  However, I can't figure out the best way to put it into my Pagelines site.  


If I disable the sidebars, I can drop in the menu using a shortcode and put it right at the top of the content section.  However, if I want to use the sidebars, the menu is truncated to make room for the sidebars on the right.  If I use the UberMenu function as it comes, it tries to replace the Navbar, but doesn't quite accomplish it with Pagelines, so I get this weird looking double-stacked menu (see attached).  I even tried hiding the search box to see if that would make everything appear on one line (even though the coloring doesn't match - I would have fixed that later), but I can't get the search box to hide.


So, my question is this.... is there a way that I can disable the Navbar insert and replace the Navbar with the shortcode to drop in this new menu?

Hi there, you can take the navbar out of the drag and drop page and replace it with a contentbox, this is a free section from the pagelines store which acts as a empty container for text/html etc.


Place that in the header and then you'll be able to put the shortcode in there, which will activate the menu in that space on the page.

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.

      I have an issue with NavPro on mobile when the link of the menue is on the same page. 
      Here is my website: http://foundersofthefuture.co
      The isssue comes from the fact that in my menue most of the items send somewhere else on the same page using anchor link (eg. #container_u788888). 
      This works well on desktop but on mobile, nothing happens when clicking on the link. One of the link of the menue of the homepage "France" sends to another page of the website and this one works well even on mobile. 
      I am using the Pagelines framework theme and also used a wordpress plugin (jQuery Smooth Scroll) for smooth scrolling . 
      Thanks in advance for your help and let me know if I need to provide more information.

      I'd love to have some social media buttons in my navbar like my online-shop has!

      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 ?

      I have a problem at http://kambo.world. Using navbar for the main site navigation. It works fine in normal/desktop mode [first screenshot], using the WP Menu I have specified. But in hamburger mode it seems to do its own thing, picking a few pages at random [second screenshot] A fix for this greatly appreciated!
