How to create navigation to sections in a page?

Recommended Posts

nizami

Is there any way to assign anchors to sections within a page (i.e. a template) in DMS? Scrollspy can only target HTML..maybe there's some workaround? Pretty standard thing to do on corporate sites so there must be a way..? Cheers N

I.e. I want some kind of navigation that jumps user to different points on a long page.

Ok while this solution works, it doesn't make for great UX because it simply jumps you down the page. Unless there's a way of making the secondary nav menu sticky, user has lost the navigation, and has no idea where they are––whether they've scrolled down or whether a new page has been loaded. Proper way to do this is to scroll the page down to the anchor...is there a way to do this? Far as I can work out, you can't put the page level 2-ary nav in the Fixed region because you want different 2-ary nav for different pages...

Not sure what you mean by your response above where you say this "Far as I can work out, you can't put the page level 2-ary nav in the Fixed region because you want different 2-ary nav for different pages...".

Can you go into greater detail please. Also, if what you want to achieve is related to customisation, please be aware that we will not be able to provide assistance.


Please search our forums, before posting!

I'm trying to create secondary ("2-ary") navigation on a long page, where each menu item in that 2-ary navigation rolls you down the page––guess this would probably have to be some kind of java thing so perhaps yes beyond the scope of this forum. The only way in DMS to make that 2-ary navigation menu "sticky" i.e. fixed to the top of the viewport, would be to put it into the FIXED area of the page, which is AFAIK global, hence every page would have the same 2-ary navigation menu.

 

E.g. homepage might have 2-ary nav that rolls you down to Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, while another page might have 2-ary navigation that rolled you down to Part X, Part Y, Part Z. Does indeed sound like it's OOS here...but would be a very cool section to have in future :-)

      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

      Unable to attach an image that's already been uploaded.
      When attempting to upload one from scratch, it gives me the error seen in the screenshot. As you can see by the Chrome Inspector, I receive a 400 error.

      I recently downloaded the latest DMS2 update. Since the download, I lost front end ability to update. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      I originally purchased, I believe, a 3 site licence for DMS2. The new account interface does not reveal any of this information.
      How do I know how many licences I am entitled to? How do I reset one for a new website? All it says now is that I don't have any Pro licences?
