Left & Right Vertical Navigation

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any suggestions on creating a left side and right side vertical navigation menu similar to what is seen on a mobile phone?  

 

By default, there is a right side vertical navigation menu on a mobile phone.  I want to create a left side one also - and they can both appear as mobile menus on the desktop site.

Okay, if you add sidebars on either side of the content area, you can get this done easily.

 

1. Add two different named, saved menus in Dashboard > Appearance > Menus. Call one left-menu, the other right-menu, so you know which is which.  Add your menu items and save each.

 

2. Go to Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets and add the Custom Menus widget to the left sidebar. When you do, you can select the left-menu from the drop down list.  Save and close.

 

Next, add the same Custom Menus widget to your right sidebar and select the right-menu from the drop down list.  Save and close. 

 

3.  Use Firebug for Firefox to examine your custom menus and test custom styling for it.  Copy the customized CSS to your Custom Code area and you've styled your two menus.

Thank you!  Just one question, using the Feature Template, how do I add sidebars on either side of content area?  I see a section called Primary Sidebar, but don't think that is going to allow a second sidebar.

      http://731.34b.myftpupload.com/ this website is using the NavPro navigation in Platform 5. It has a lot of menu items, so it breaks to two lines when the window is sized down. What is the media query to make the navigation either a) switch to "mobile mode" at a higher width, or b ) expand the nav into two lines. Thanks

      Hi Everyone,
      I am trying to get a single navigation item to center. I am using a scroll menu in the navigation component of Impulse. I would like to have the item in the center of the page but it defaults right. I tried setting the item to center a few different ways and nothing is working. I added {
        display: inline-block;
        position: relative;
        text-align: center;
      }
      but that didn't work...any help would be appreciated. Site is at http://vetpaw.org/new
       
      Thanks!

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      I'm still "piercing the veil" of platform 5, with page navigation the current subject of interest. I worked with a few plugins (the most useful being Next Page Not Next Post) but I wanted to take a step back and start with an example - and see if I could get a bit of help "inside the beltway". 
      What I'm looking to do is substantially similar to the pagelines docs pages - see my annotated screenshots attached. At the top of a "child" page I want a link back to the "parent" page - and at the bottom of that "child" page I want to place a similar link to the "grandchild" page. At the bottom of each grandchild page I want there to be navigation "buttons" to sibling pages in the hierarchy. 
      "Next Page Not Next Post" handles what I'm expecting for "sibling" navigation, but I'm having a bit of trouble getting over the logistical hump of applying that functionality to my page "Template C" instance only. And per the attached examples, while researching how to solve this problem I see on the Pagelines site *itself* that the navigation elements are in place - and I especially like the oval button formatting of the sibling page navigation.
      So - really, my question is two-part:
      Are there plugins/code snippets/tutorials/threads here that show how Pagelines achieved their page hierarchy nagivation, and  Is there a tutorial (or advice from generous contributors here) on how to use the PHP templates to override the content portion of the page to add the navigation elements? Thanks in advance!

      What is the equivalent to DMS2's PostNav section in PL5?  I'm looking for PREVIOUS/NEXT buttons that show the associated post names for the previous and next posts.
      Thanks,
      J.D.
