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.

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 -
      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,

      I am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.
