Placing a vertical menu over a RevSlider

Recommended Posts

tomtwigg

I'm using v2.1.1, I am looking for advice about how to place a vertically oriented menu over the top of a RevSlider. I could use Canvas and TextBox to place a coded menu into position, but my concern is that it would not scale with the slider (or maybe I would just need to create many screen size determined CSS rules to accommodate size), but I would prefer to use a WP piece that would be configurable. Anyway, maybe there is a more elegant solution? 

 

Thanks,

Tom

Hi Tom,

 

In order to add something custom like a vertical menu will require you to use the Slider Extra Options panel and use HTML. However, I am not sure if this will work or not, if you want to continue and give it a try, you will need to use the guide from here - http://www.orbis-ingenieria.com/code/documentation/documentation.html

 

You can see my example code here which demonstrates how to add a video to the RevSlider section before the video options were implemented. The priniciple is the same for adding HTML such as a text or a list, so you can use this as a guide.

Thanks for your advice. I went ahead yesterday and hammered something into place just using a Canvas section below the slider with a TextBox that I manually created a menu for and then used CSS to place it where it needed to be — you can see it here: http://www.heronswoodgarden.org

 

I was hoping I might find an easy WP menu I could place so updating it would be easier for somebody who was uncomfortable with coding, but I think this will be suitable. I hid it on small screens in favor of the default sliding menu.

Looks awesome, nicely done. Also, you could try using this plugin to display a WordPress menu via a shortcode.

Please bear in mind that I haven't tested this plugin personally.

Nice.  So you put the menu code in a text box, in a canvas section below the slider?

Yes, that is exactly what I did, place the "menu" as html in a Text Box within a Canvas section, and use the LESS css customize area to place the new piece up and over the slider (using negative margin-top and z-index: 200;). 

 

By making this part of a custom template the new vertical navigation is automatically added to new pages—with the tools available it really seems like a very flexible system.

I'm trying to do something similar with a horizontal menu over RevSlider.  I have it in place but can't sort out the Z-index.  Did you go through and assign a Z-index to every section on the page?  I looked at your site and the z-index for the vertical menu seems to be 10 and I couldn't see how the other sections were assigned z-index.

      Greetings
      I just migrated an old DMS2 site to PL5 at cassClayton.com. If you look at the site on Safari browser, you will see the top nav bar (NavPro) is white, but gets revealed as you start to scroll the page. NavPro is used in the Header section, then a Text section in which I have Shortcode for the Smart Slider3 plugin. Would have preferred to use a PL-compatible slider but found it difficult to get Flick and Impress slider to simply fill full screen, just height of images (they were filling whole screen, hence large black area filling in the rest).
      So seems on Safari that the load order of the plugin may be causing the Nav bar to be overwritten? or something. 
      Hoping someone can help?
      thanks...  (works fine on Chrome, Firefox, even Tor, just not Safari)

      Hi -
      Pulling my hair out over here, and would love an assist!
      Site I am building, http://www.livkundalini.com/home, has a problem with the submenu items in the nav not appearing. 
      If anyone wants to see what the Nav should look like, feel free to look in the footer on the left hand side.
      Have tried disabling Pagelines and using the twentyseventeen theme, but problem persists.
      Saw this error (pasted at the bottom of this post) displaying in the inspector, and saw discussion of Jetpack potentially being a culprit. Disabled Jetpack, but the problem persists.
      Had the hosting company even flush the server-side cache, but no avail.
      Any thoughts? Please? It's the only thing keeping me from launching this site!
      Many Thanks,
      Todd

      Hi team,
      checking my site today, i'm surprised to see my MegaNav all in bottom of the pages, while it's in header.
      After getting to change it in couple of pages onto Template part (too time consuming !), i'm desperate and ask you for help :-)

      Not sure exactly what is causing the issue. For some reason, why you view my site on mobile, the menu does not show up. It will pop up, but it is black. You can check it out here: http://dev.caryfbc.org. I'm also attaching a screenshot where I shrunk my browser down. Any suggestions?

      I think I may have installed pagelines pro incorrectly, and then used features incorrectly. I installed first platforms framework theme and then the child, thinking I could do setup for child later. I tried to set up a background image, and tried custom css feature in pagelines dashboard. I had mistakes in my css, and just thought that if I deleted the info in the css custom feature in pagelines dashboard that the new information would overwrite the old info. The background image didn't respond at all, probably because I didn't have the child directory renamed. I then tried to use the LSS plugin to create css and added more css, possibly, somewhere -sigh-. I never did change the background image and get it placed properly. I used a workaround and in nested containers I placed a background image which worked well enough, so I moved on to try to create my nav bar/ menu bar. When I go to the Menus panel, there is NO area where I can place a menu on a page. I have read and reread and re- re- reread the instructions for placing a menu. I've used the pagelines editor to place a menu, however only HOME shows up. I've been at this for many hours. I've since uninstalled all of my pagelines items and reinstalled, thinking that it would restore all my changes to default, but no, it is still all there, with all my unresolved issues. I am completely at a loss as to what to do next.
