Menus

This panel is used for managing Navigation Menus for content you have already published on your site. You can create menus and add items for existing content such as pages, posts, categories, tags, formats, or custom links. Menus can be displayed in locations defined by the theme or in widget areas by adding a “Custom Menu” widget.

This theme uses Navigation Menus wp_nav_menu() in three locations. Primary, Footer – Left and Footer – Right.

Locations:

  • Primary Placed in the top header. For the Main site navigation.
  • Footer – Left Placed in the left footer. This is a one level menu (no dropdowns)
  • Footer – Right – (optionally social menu) Placed in the right footer. You can use it as a regular menu or as a Social Links menu. Inputting a custom link to your social profile the menu item will automatically display an icon for that social network (icons are provided by Ionicons icon font). To hide textual part of the link and display only the icon, add “icon-only” class to each menu item. If you add “icon-only” class, text will be visually hidden, but still available for screen readers.

  • Primary sidebar – The main sidebar. It is displayed on either the left or right side of the page based on the chosen layout.
  • Subsidiary sidebar – A sidebar located in the upper footer of the site. Optimized for one wide widget (and multiples thereof).
