Simple Nav only on selected pages?

Recommended Posts


Hi guys,


I've just started adding some pages to a simple nav section on my site and was hoping to make it so that the menu shows itself only on the pages within the menu. You might think of it as a menu for a subsection of my site. 


I thought I'd be able to hide the menu by not selecting it in the global options config box in the dms, but when I don't select it, it shows anyway (I'm guessing it's because I only have one menu created, when I had three menus it was showing the oldest one globally and the selected one on my desired page). 


I've also tried creating a blank menu which doesn't have any pages selected, but this just shows the default menu (as in the top right one that I have set in Navbar global options).


Is it possible to keep the area blank?


My site is http://adventuresinhealth.co.uk/


The section I want to keep blank (globally) is just under the social bar.

The section of pages I want to show as a sort of submenu will be nested under 'hypnotherapy'.


Thanks in advance to anyone who may be able to help!

Hi superbootcamps - I think the easiest way to accomplish this would be the following:


1. Remove the menu you don't want showing on all pages from the Header section since that section is global and will show on all pages by default as you've seen.

2. On the Hypnotherapy page (and all other pages that you would like the menu to show) drag a new simple nav section to the template area under the header. Select (or create and then select) the menu with just the subpages for the hypno section and publish.


What this does is leaves the default global menu at the top and then only serves up that secondary menu on the pages you've assigned it to.

Have you searched the forums yet or checked out the DMS user docs?

      I would like to change the fontcolor in my simple nav...
      I know it has to do with CSS...
      I don't know if I have to use the "custom styling classes" or "Inline CSS styling". I don't know the difference between them.
      I looked with Chrome in the code of the site - about 3800 rules pfff - 
      I was not able to find the code that changes the fontcolor of my Simple Nav section into white (#ffffff)
      Can anybody help me...

      If this posts twice apologies, but it didm't show the first time. 
      Anyway I have found that the DMS 2 simple nag doesn't align center due to overriding styles in the parent .pl-section-pad. This div needs to be set to:-
      .pl-section-pad { text-align: center; }   May be a better way, but the styles aren't working at present.   Regards   Glennyboy

      Has anyone had this occur? http://iwhc.wpengine.com/?s=global seems to be showing all pages available inside the Simple Nav menus but only on the Search Results page. Go to any other page and you won't see it happening.
