Great information you gave me a couple of weeks ago. I was able to get the top of my page how I wanted it (i added a second custom navigation).
Is there any way I can add an image to this secondary navigation? I would like to add a facebook button that’s not text? See here for a mockup of what I’m talking about.
As always, you guys give great help and advice here.
Thanks for your time and effort,
Thanks for responding, Scott…I really appreciate it. I don’t want to take up too much of your time on here, but I’ll try to explain a little more clearly what I’m looking to do.
Yes, setting ‘header-nav’ to ‘display: none’ does what I want in terms of sliding the art to the very top of the page, but that ‘header-nav’ is the secondary navigation I added myself. I want the ‘home’ link and a couple of others to be at the very top of the page with the black strip behind them. That black strip is attached to the seamless letter background right now. How do you add a second navigation to the top of a thematic website with a background behind it? (i guess is what i’m asking). I thought I did it correctly by adding this:
`// Adds secondary nav to header
echo ‘<div id=”child-second-nav” class=””>’;
<li><a href=”#contact”>Contact Us</a></li>
but maybe there is another way to do it if I want a background behind it? I’m probably confusing you, but I have a page background image, a header background image and then header art I want on top of the header background, and I want that black strip at the top of the page behind the navigation. I figured out most of it except that top navigation.
Thanks again for all of your time and help!!!
Wow, awesome. Thank you so much, Scott…it worked! I thought I had just been looking at it for too long.
Thanks for your time and for a solution!March 21, 2013 at 6:12 pm in reply to: Different Images/Text on Every Page's Aside Column #3112
Yes the pages are all different, about 8-12 informational pages like ‘Our Staff’, ‘Our Philosophy’ and so on. I just want a ‘side’ area or column that can have an image on each page that relates to what the page is and maybe a little bit of text, but mostly I want a picture floating to the left of the ‘content’ area of each page. I just figured that since ‘aside’ was already there, I should use it? Maybe that’s not the case. Should I get rid of ‘aside’ and put some kind of editable column there with code that’s the same width as ‘aside’?
Here is a basic mockup of what I’m trying to achieve…I know it’s basic, I just don’t know why it’s harder than I thought. The picture to the left of ‘content’ will change each page.
Also, I am not doing all of my editing through the WP editor, but I am editing the style.css file thru there. I didn’t realize people didn’t use the WP editor. I do use FTP for a lot of the files, but I can start using only FTP if that is the best way.
Thanks again for your time.
Nevermind, I believe I fixed it by editing my #main margin. Thanks if anyone read this though.
I guess you’re right, I’m not sure where I got #navigation either. 🙁
I copied over all of the ‘sf-menu’ properties and I will start manipulating them to see what is what, but yes that is a complicated menu…a lot of code for it.
It’s fine to keep ALL of the code on the same style sheet, right? Especially since it’s a child theme? I wasn’t sure what is too long for a style sheet.
Last but not least, I’m unfamiliar with the Chrome developer tools…is this the correct page I should be looking through? I’ve never used it, but based on what you said it will help me figure out what CSS properties are what?
Many thanks for all of your time..again.
Thanks Scott, I played around with the information you gave me, all I have to do now is style my menu.
This is helping me, for sure. I’m confused as to what ‘#access’ refers to though. Is it just a container that holds my ‘#navigation’?
I used #access to move the menu around, but when I style it do I use #navigation? They seem similar so I’m confused as to what is what. I’m trying not to have any extra/unnecessary code in my style.css, so I’m trying to stay organized.
Thanks again for your help!
