Adding a header inside a menu list, like in Bootstrap

Recommended Posts

kneops

Hi,

 

I'd like to a add a sub header inside my menu, just like this: http://ompldr.org/vaTlxZA

I know I can do this using custom code, but I would like to use the menu structure of WP.

How can I do this?

 

Also, if I would be forced to do this manually, what's the easiest way to get that html code inside the header?

Do I have to copy the header.php inside my child theme and add it there?

Hi,

 

The simplest method would be to add the HTML to a text widget yourself and then add the CSS required, to your custom CSS. Unfortunately, you wont be able to use the WP MENU with this.

Well, I'm still trying to find out what I can do with the templating within PL and this was a question related to that. Because I may want to add a mini slider next to the logo for instance, and I'm not sure how to do that besides manually. Untill now I created my templates manually and sometimes added something like the PL boxes next to the logo. But I can't 'split' the header in two halfs, except by copying and editing the header.php.

 

This is another topic, I know :)

By using a contentbox (free section from the pagelines store) in the header and then using the grid shortcodes inside it demo.pagelines.me/tools/ you'll be able to split the box in two columns. Then you can place your logo in one column and any other content into the other column. This content would have to be added manually, you won't be able to add sections or items from the drag and drop into the column etc. However, I see you want to have a mini slider, there's also a slider shortcode on the 'tools' page you could use in the second column to create the effect you're looking for.


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.

Ok, that should work. It would be better imho if the header would also have regions for placing content. Let's say I wanted to have a logo on the left, an image on the right and beneath that my social icons or a button. That would now be 'a lot of' work with custom code and css. ;)

If you wish to have different elements aligned with one another such as a logo on the left and your social icons/menu on the right, you will want to take a look at the PageLines grid.

      Hi -
      Pulling my hair out over here, and would love an assist!
      Site I am building, http://www.livkundalini.com/home, has a problem with the submenu items in the nav not appearing. 
      If anyone wants to see what the Nav should look like, feel free to look in the footer on the left hand side.
      Have tried disabling Pagelines and using the twentyseventeen theme, but problem persists.
      Saw this error (pasted at the bottom of this post) displaying in the inspector, and saw discussion of Jetpack potentially being a culprit. Disabled Jetpack, but the problem persists.
      Had the hosting company even flush the server-side cache, but no avail.
      Any thoughts? Please? It's the only thing keeping me from launching this site!
      Many Thanks,
      Todd

      Hi team,
      checking my site today, i'm surprised to see my MegaNav all in bottom of the pages, while it's in header.
      After getting to change it in couple of pages onto Template part (too time consuming !), i'm desperate and ask you for help :-)

      Not sure exactly what is causing the issue. For some reason, why you view my site on mobile, the menu does not show up. It will pop up, but it is black. You can check it out here: http://dev.caryfbc.org. I'm also attaching a screenshot where I shrunk my browser down. Any suggestions?

      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?
