Arrows show when disabled

Recommended Posts



I just purchased Hero Nav.

I made some changes in colours on the current page then removed it but the colours remain the same.

I disabled the arrows for drop downs too but they still appear.

I've tried deactivating, deleting and reinstalling but it retains those settings even though the sliders are set to 0 and arrows should be switched off.

Can you help please?

Hey paulzz1,
Sorry to hear you're having trouble.  Something sounds strange.  Can you perhaps show me some screenshots of what's happening?

I'm not sure what you mean by this.  Colors are set under the global Hero Nav options under Site Options.  They are not set on a per-page basis.
Regarding the dropdown arrows, just to clarify: those apply to arrows that appear on the dropdown menus themeselves, not the carets that are inside the top level menu item.  Are you referring to the carets?

Thanks for the quick reply.


Colours: I don't want the hover or Current Page/Item Contrast state to be different colours from the 'normal' menu colour. The sliders to change those colours are set to 0 although I did experiment before deciding to set them back.


Arrows: I guess I mean both. The main menu bar has arrows indicating there's a sub-menu and the sub-menus have arrows indicating a further sub-menu. I don't want either. Both the check boxes for 'enable arrows' in the main Pagelines Header and Footer section and in the Hero Nav section are deselected.


Could there be an errant stylesheet persisting outside of the Hero Nav section folder?


Despite all this though I'm very impressed with it. I did a site a while back (http://caldew.cumbria.sch.uk/) and it took AGES to get close to what you've made possible in minutes!

Thanks Paul!


I just deployed version 1.0.6 which should take care of everything.


About the colors, there was a problem where some default values were being used for the state contrast values when you tried to save a 0 value.


About the arrows, I've added 2 new options, so there are now options to control the visibility of each of the different kinds of arrows, and such. You're not the first person to ask about some of these, and I admit that the one option that was there was making it a little confusing for folks to understand just which ones it was controlling.


So, thanks for your support, let me know if there's anything else.  You should see the update available when you go to Store > Sections > Your Added Sections.


Please let me know if anything is out of the ordinary after updating.  Thanks!

Hi Evan

Thanks but the store says 1.05

The update is definitely live.  Maybe it took longer than usual for the new version to show up.  Usually it shows up right away as soon as it's deployed.


See here from the Pagelines dashboard inside wp-admin: http://screencast.com/t/tqzkM0HS

      Hero Nav 1.3
      Wordpress 4.2.2
      I just downloaded the latest version of Hero Nav from my Pagelines account but when I try to upload it to the plugins page it gives me this error:
      The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found.
      Plugin install failed.
      So I unzipped the package and find that all it contains is a README file.
      Can you send me the latest version (vikzee (@[email protected]) yahoo.co.uk) in it's entirety or re-load it to the Pagelines site so people who've paid for it can get the latest version?

      I did not personally install what I'm trying to fix. I'm working on a preexisting installation of WordPress and Pagelines.
      But when I arrived the problem was already there: just upon posts displaying in the hero nav main menu I get a "Home" link not working,
      due to a anchor completely missing the href attribute.
      I made some tests and I noticed what follows.
      The same problem occurs with every plain link I add that hero menu (not with pages), I mean with links showed as CUSTOM Curiously enough I found in a sublevel a link of that kind, it has somehow back in the past inserted by someone else, no me: it works just like it is supposed to do No problem of that kind in a fixed navigation bar (I tried to enable it) I underscore the mentioned problem occurs only when displaying posts, not with pages.
      Any clues? Since I'm afraid it may take a too long time to fix this specific problem, I also ask: could you possibly point to what I am supposed to read in order to do without the hero nav bar and use some other navigation bar in the same place of the template?
      Thanks in advance

      Hello, I'm having a strange issue with the background of my Hero Nav drop-down being "see through". Can anyone direct me on how to make this solid black instead??  Thank you! 
      Site URL: http://multicolores.org/ And there is a drop-down menu when you hover over 'About'.

      Hi there,
      Whenever I make changes to the formatting options in the Hero Nav section of Site Settings such as font base colour it doesn't appear to change the look of my nav bar,
      Any reason as to why this is happening? Screenshot attached.

      I'd like to be able to add a logo to HeroNav.  Particularly on mobile so the icon would be either left or right and the logo on the other.  
      I added a logo just as a menu item but this didn't work perfectly.
