DMS 2 Navi vs Navbar section?

2 posts in this topic

DMS2 brought some nice new sections.

Navi is new. Does anybody have a good overview how Navi relates to the Navbar section.

Why would one prefer one over the other?


It would be good if @pagelines could provide some guidance about legacy sections.

Something like this:

"We now recommend that you use the new Navi section because we added [...features...] that we (for some reason) could add to the old Navbar section. We'll keep the Navbar section (because many have deployed it) but we won't develop it any further."






Anybody know anything about the overlap between new and legacy section?

In most cases you can still use the old section by copying the folder from Themes/dms/sections into your child theme.

    • More than 2 Mobile Menus
      By mistrmint+
      Is it possible to include more than 2 mobile menu's on the site?
      I am using 4 menu's but in mobile only the first 2 are clickable.
      Menu 4 is on a standalone page. If I click the menu on this page, the primary 2 menu's appear.
      i.e. Menu 4 is not clickable.

    • Header formatting
      By richardjacruz+
      I saw this website build with PageLines DMS:
      I want to have a header that's VERY similar. However, with the fixed area, I'm struggling with how to do that. 
      I want to have a "super menu" under one of the tabs, and drop downs for others, a larger logo to the left like this, a search all the way to the right, and a call-to-action at the top like we see with "Donate" (I want "Request a Quote").
      What area (fixed or header) is best to use for this, and, within that area, what are the best sections to place?
