Video - How to create a majestic menu like with WooThemes Canvas 2

It is fair to say that at PootlePress we are fans of most things Apple related. So when we were dreaming up ideas for Canvas Extension menus, it wasn’t long before we thought of

But took us ages to think of a name for it…

Apootle… Poople… iPoo… but we finally settled on Papple ; )

Simply install Papple Menu as a plugin and you have an Apple Menu for your WooThemes Canvas site.

In this video we also show you how to create a hero header that makes the Papple Menu come to life:

Like all our Canvas Extensions it comes with one year’s support and use on unlimited sites.

Let us know what other menus you’d like to see on our ideas board.


Papple is no longer for sale as a separate plugin. However you can use Menu Customizer to create a menu just like it.

  1. Nice one, I do really like this!!!

    Is it possible to get the image just on some page like and just the menu on the other pages?

    1. Hi Peder, thanks for your nice comment. Yes, this is possible with some custom CSS. My thinking on the easiest way to do this would be something like:

      1. set the image and Papple menu settings how you want it as I have done in the video and then use ‘Inspect Element’ (Chrome Developer Tools) to get the CSS.
      2. Just use this CSS just for the homepage using the ‘home’ class
      3. Write this custom CSS into your child theme
      4. Remove the Canvas settings and replace with how you want it on every page of the site

      Does this make sense?


        1. Hi Nick. Its still not working for me. I deleted the old plugin and reinstalled version Version 1.0.2 but it still only works in Google Chrome.

          Is its something I am doing. Are there any settings you need to know from me?


          1. Hi Keith,

            That is the most updated version. Can you send this through as a support ticket to (that is how we support Canvas Extension plugins) with the following info:

            1. Screenshot if poss
            2. Version of Firefox or any other browsers it is not working on.
            3. Operating System and version

            We use some software that helps us simulate your exact set up so we should be able to re-create this issue. But please email

            Thanks! Nick

  2. Hi there
    I tried searching for the papple plug in simply by entering it into the search box under plugins when ‘add new’.

    But it did not yield any search results. What am I doing wrong?


    1. Hey Gareth, the quick answer is no. You need to find shorter names for your nav lables (like Apple). This is always a challenge for me too, but it’s nice thinking about simplifying everything in a very Apple-like way!

  3. Hi Nick,

    Is there a way to have a logo appear instead of “home” in the Papple menu (like Apple has their apple logo)?
    BTW, I’m new to the Pootlepress Academy…wish I would have found you years ago!
