    Hi Jamie,

    I have a main Menu across the top of my Homepage; Home, About, Process, Customise, Shop, Contact. Under Customise, I have more Sub-Menus.
    Is it possible to put these Sub-Menus on the left of the page when Customise is selected? I’ve also go them as ‘drop-downs’ from the Customise Menu, but I’d also like them to appear to the left, one under another i.e.

    Addressing
    Colour
    Corners
    Die Shapes

    etc. Is there an easy way to do this?

    Thanks again
    Pia

    Hi Pia,

    You could try using this plugin from woothemes called dynamic menus http://docs.woothemes.com/document/woodojo-dynamic-menus/.

    This allows to changes menus depending on what page you are viewing. I’m not 100% sure how’d you’d use this to put into a left hand sidebar – but in theory it should work.

    The other way to approach this would be use woosidebars and add a custom sidebar to the customize page. Then put a menu into that sidebar.

    Hi Jamie,

    This has had me stumped all day, until I finally realised I might need to put a Custom Menu Widget area in Page Builder!

    My question is, is this the best way to do it – I’m not convinced…
    I have built this page with Page Builder, 1 row, 2 columns. Putting the Custom Menu Widget in the left side Pootle Visual Editor Widget and text with images in the right hand Pootle Visual Editor Widget.

    My other question is, I would like to customise it more, i.e. remove the bullets from the Menu items and have a background applied to the selected menu item or lines separating each one like on this website:
    SHOP
    is this custom.css?

    Thanks once more

    Hi Pia,

    1) Yes you could do it that way
    2) Yup you’d need some custom css to style the menu

    Thanks for confirming Jamie, I’ll look at your css tutorial again and see if I can get my head around styling the menu further.

    Hi Jamie,

    I’ve actually found a better and to be honest, tidier way to do it without putting the menu as a widget in a Page Builder Cell.

    On the relevant pages I’ve changed the Layout from One Column, to Two Columns (Content On The Left), the Menu automatically goes into the left column (all of this after dragging the Custom Menu Widget to the default primary sidebar in the Widgets area – hope that makes sense.

    One problem I’ve encountered in one of my menus however is that bullets are automatically applied to each of the menu items, I’ve used the Inspect Element option (Chrome) but can’t find the relevant CSS – any ideas?

    The second problem, on my Shop page, the Menu is in the correct place, however all of my products sit below it rather than beside – again, any ideas?

    Thanks again
    Pia
