Custom Navigation Help

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am trying to customize the navigation to be bigger and cleaner. Currently I have no idea how to customize the navigation and where to even start. I was wondering if any of you out there could be of any assistance.

 

This is what I currently have [attachment=1269:Screen Shot 2013-08-05 at 10.11.09 AM.png]

 

This is what I am kind of going for [attachment=1270:Screen Shot 2013-08-05 at 10.15.02 AM.png]

 

As you can see, the navigation is super small, I don't like having it within a box, and it sits at the top of the page.

 

Help! And thanks!

Buy Navablein the store. I spent literally an entire Sunday trying to customize the Navbar but I am not good enough at CSS to make stuff work across multiple browsers. This is the best 14.99 you will ever spend and I would have spent 100.00 on it yesterday to not waste an entire day.

The navigation is better, but I am still having issues getting it to default to the bottom of the header. Currently it sticks to the top of the column instead of the bottom.

 

I am trying to get that worked out.

Navable is the worst $14.99 I have ever spent. Navable is no better than the free Navbar (which is terrible, also). 

 

Navable "partial width" is not functioning.

 

Navable "base color" does not change the base color.

 

The "base color" color picker is half out of the editing screen so that one must know the Hex code for the colors not displayed. But, it doesn't matter anyway because the use of the "base color" box is non-functional.

 

There is no control for font family.

 

There is no control for font size.

 

There is no ability to center the navigation menu.

 

There is no documentation for Navable that I can find.

 

The shortcode function either doesn't work or the description page for the shortcodes doesn't explain how to implement them well enough for me to get them to work.

 

It really seems that I could come up with more bad things to say about Navable, but I am tired. I hope this post saves at least one person $14.99.

Worse $14.99 you ever spent?

 

Good luck finding support then.

 

The COLOR DOES WORK. It's a PAGELINES BUG.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to delete the topic or your posting as requested.  Please remember, the developers (like Nick) provide support here voluntarily, and are not paid specifically for providing support.  So in future, kindly mind how you're dealing with frustrations.  We totally understand things are frustrating. but, people do have to help you. It's not wise to slap someone in the face then ask for their help.  You're not alone in this, but it's just not smart to do.

 

Most of the other issues you mentioned, aside from the color, can be controlled by careful inspection of the site in Firefox using Firebug and then applying CSS (found in Firebug) corrected to the way you want things.  The docs have info on how this is done:  http://docs.pagelines.com.

      Hi everyone,
      Flywheel have reported errors on my clients site 'www.racewaredirect.co.uk' and it's not loading. Can someone please provide some information on how to fix this? The site has never experienced these issues before.
      Thanks,

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.

      Hi
      I found this topic
      which talks about a similar issue I am having, but a little different. Hope someone can help me out.
      Best way to see the problem is to view http://cassclayton.com/ on Safari (Mac) compared to Firefox or Chrome. You will see the banner just under the fixed menubar has a gap between the menubar and top of the banner. Looking at Inspector, I found:
      <div class="fixed-top-pusher" style="height: 62px;"></div>
      <script> jQuery('.fixed-top-pusher').height( jQuery('.pl-fixed-top').height() ) </script>
      and indeed it seems the jquery is not always working consistently. For instance, if you simply refresh the page in Safari, it will loose the gap and all looks fine, so is it a browser cache issue that is interacting with the jquery? I do have W3 Total Cache installed. There must be a way to tell the code to make sure jquery is up and running and available to do it's majic?
      And perhaps there is just a better way to do this banner? Originally I tried several DMS sections and used the banner image as background, etc... Kept running into problems with resizing and the left/right parts of the image were getting chopped off. It is important the whole image show, so currently I just use a NextBox section with this code:
      <img src="[pl_site_url]/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/CassClayton-blues-tribute-banner.jpg" width="100%" />
      and it looks the way it should. Is there a better way to place a banner graphic under a fixed navbar and make sure the whole banner graphic displays regardless of screensize?

      Hi,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,
