Is is possible to have two nav bars?

Recommended Posts




I have had a good look through the forums and the docs but can't find an answer so hope you can help here.


I need to build a website for a business that has various sectors such as Business, Education, Charity etc. Under each of these will need separate sub-pages such as Services, Products, Contact and so on.


To achieve this I will really need two separate nav bars, one at the top for the overall sectors and another for the sub pages. Is there any way to do this in DMS?


To hopefully explain better, here is a website which uses similar navigation:



I realize that I have posted this in the free support section. I fully intend to buy the business version of DMS but can't until I get an answer on this particular feature.

Hi Stephen.


Yeah you can, the simplest method would be to use Navi or Navbar as your main menu and then use the Simple Nav section for your less important (second) menu.

Please search our forums, before posting!

Fantastic, thanks Danny. May I also ask is there a way for the nav bar links to take you to a lower part of the same page (like in a one page website) ?

Sorry, ignore my question above. I have just found the Scroll Spy feature which does exact what I need :)

      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

      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.
