GeneratePress Customizing Layout Primary Navigation

If you are using the GeneratePress Theme and have uploaded the Add-Ons plugin and activated all of the options, the Layout option is the third section you’ll see when you click on the Customize link from a page or post.

The Primary Navigation sub-option is the third in the list of this section.

The ‘Primary Navigation’ section lets you adjust the Navigation Width, Position, Alignment, Dropdown and Search.

Navigation Width

This setting will set the width of the primary navigation of your website.

If you choose Full from the drop-down menu, the header will be full-width.

If you choose Contained, the header will be in a box. Its appearance will be controlled by other customization options.

Navigation Position

This setting will set the position of the primary navigation of your website.

There are 7 options: Below Header, Above Header, Float Right, Float Left, Left Sidebar, Right Sidebar and No Navigation.

Navigation Alignment

Assuming you haven’t chosen ‘No Navigation’ in the Navigation Position setting, this setting will adjust the alignment of the primary navigation.

The options are Left, Center, and Right.

Navigation Dropdown

Assuming you haven’t chosen ‘No Navigation’ in the Navigation Position setting and you have sub menus, this setting will adjust what is required to show the dropdowns.

The options are Hover, Click – Menu Item and Click-Arrow.

If you choose Hover, the drop-down menus will appear is someone’s cursor moves over the menu option; no clicking necessary.

If you choose Click – Menu Item, the person will need to click on the menu option in order for the drop-down menu to appear.

If you choose the Click – Arrow, the drop-down will only appear if the person clicks on the arrow next to the menu name.

This is a personal choice but I personally get annoyed when I have to click numerous times to get somewhere I want to go, so I choose Hover.

Navigation Search

Assuming you haven’t chosen ‘No Navigation’ in the Navigation Position setting, this setting will adjust whether a search option appears on the far right of the menu.

The options are Disabled and Enabled.

I always choose Enabled unless including it makes the menu too wide or complicated.

Save Changes

Once you are done making your changes, click on the Save & Publish button at the top of the Customizing sidebar.

If you change any of these options while you are in the Customize mode you will be able to see how the change affects the look of your website.

Congratulations! You just set the Layout Primary Navigations options for your website using the Customizing feature in WordPress.
