Navigation Menu Not Working on Non-Front Pages

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Not the most experienced guy in the world here -- just an attorney who liked PlatformPro and purchased it to make a license-free site.

 

I'm having two problems.  

 

1. The first may or may not be new -- I think I would have noticed, but I'm not positive.  On the front page of the site, the navigation has dropdown menus.  Some of the child pages have their own children, even.  But for some reason, when I go to any other page, only the top-level pages are visible.

Front page: http://falseclaimsactattorney.com

Example of a page on which the dropdown menus are not working: http://falseclaimsactattorney.com/welcome-to-greene-llp/about-the-firm/thomas-m-greene-boston-false-claims-act-attorney/

 

I just tried replacing what had been a default menu with a custom menu, and that did not fix the problem.  Any ideas?

 

2. I have not updated to PlatformPro 1.6.0 -- but when I try to do so, I get a 404.

Hi there,

 

Platform 1.6 can be downloaded from github on the following link - https://github.com/pagelines/platformpro

 

Did this work previously? Or was there something which triggered it like a wordpress update etc? I'd say upgrade to 1.6 in case there was a coding fix in there somewhere. I can see the sub menus appear in the source code but they just aren't being triggered on hover for some reason. To upgrade to 1.6 you'll need to install manually via appearance>themes.

 

Let us know if that has any effect :-)

I am also having a hard time with the static home page menus. I want to change my static page menu to an abbreviated version of the site menu. So I built a custom menu to use for the home page. Then, when I go into the menu editor, I change the primary website navigation to the home page menu. When I do this it reverts back to another menu I set called Main Menu. I have re-made the list, but that hasn't solved the problem, Any ideas for what I should do?

Hi there, if you have the menu in the header area make sure the changes you're making are in the local tab - http://screencast.com/t/qx2nTEa693

 

When you select the menu click in another area of the dms control panel so you see the spinning save icon in the top right of the dms control panel. Once this has stopped spinning, then publish and save.

      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.
