Best way to duplicate pl-fixed-top header and include accordion

Recommended Posts

Well this is my third time typing this because somehow it keeps getting deleted :( So here we go!

 

Website: Brightontheday

Problem: Customization of Fixed navbar

 

Please view attached image for screen shot of my FIXED NAVIGATION currently active on my site. This will give you a frame of reference :)

 

As you can see, I currently have the PL fixed nav enabled. I would like to add an additional navigation bar either below or above (preferably below) that will include additional navigation options (see "WHAT I WANT" below)

 

Currently included within my fixed navigation bar (as can be seen within image)

1.       DMS OPTION: Default search box enabled via DMS Navigation settings checkbox

2.       DMS OPTION: Primary menu configured via DMS Navigation Settings Dropdown

3.       HACK: Custom Div added via HOOKER plugin (by Simon Poser) using the “Pagelines_Navbar_After_Menu” Hook

 

WHAT I WANT:

I would like to include another NAVBAR below this one that contains various DIVS.

Specifically I would like to include a list of links telling viewers “Where I Shop” – 

Ideally, I could use:

1. accordion OR

2. popover that DOES NOT close when you try and click on the popover area [Please see THIS BLOG HERE for example of this option w/I main menu.]

 

Why do I want to do this? Because I would like to provide as much as possible (navigation-wise) within my fixed navbar with as little space as possible. In other words, I want to provide lots of rich options. The reason why I want to include an accordion or popover is because I'd like them to have the information (links) readily available instead of sending them to another page - like a resources page.

 

I have tried the following:

1. using hooks to add content before POSTNAV, before PL-AREA, and AFTER POSTNAV but none of these options worked (....YES I have used the action map to make sure I'm adding content/hook to correct section/area)

2. adding a TEXTBOX (via DMS of course!) within header area and using CSS to apply fixed styles (as well as adding top margin to content area so that it would look right)

 

These options above did NOT work. 

 

what do you think I should do? thanks!

Why don't you just get Uber menu. That would provide you with far more functionality should you need it at a later date (or see something you like on another's site), let alone less mobile view headaches


Chrome Developer tools - please use them. If you are not sure how, then it is easy to learn

Be inventive in your keyword search of the forum ie Navi > Navbar > menu > tabs > font > color. Your answer lies there somewhere!

jmad - thanks so much for chiming in! I can't seem to find this mega menu? are you just referring to the dropdowns demonstrated on the sample site? If so, how would I go about recreating such a dropdown menu?!

This link will help you.... http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/33562-navi-megamenu-class/

 

The DMS megamenu would suffice for your needs now. However, I personally think that Uber Menu not only offers more scope, but I prefer its mobile menu view. Just a matter of taste I suppose. If you are using Uber menu, then you will need to visit your Pagelines account and download the Uber Menu Adapter plugin

      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?

      Hello There,
      So i want to use platform 5 and DMS sections on a single page, i am using a child theme with pinspro as my main theme and i activated platform 5, the only problem am having so far is the fixed option, my navbars are not aligning to their default size, and it will be great if platform 5 header and footer section will function, has anyone used this option, how can i make the best use of platform 5 and DMS on a site
      Cheers

      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,
