    I have recently installed Newscast on our website and we are using the Minimal theme, here is the URL;

    As you can see, there is a double layer of menu bars at the top of the page. They link to the same categories but all the same they look ugly.

    Is there a way of removing the top layer of menu links?

    I admit, I am a very new user of your theme and have a very basic knowledge of WordPress in general.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Business Advisor Network team.

    PS. The Newscast zip file that I downloaded after purchase does not seem to contain any documentation, where abouts can I find the documentation for setting up the theme?


    In Appearance>Editor (in the Admin Panel) open the file named Header

    Look for these lines and them


    wp_nav_menu( array( 'menu' => 'First', 'menu_class' => 'nav', 'echo' => true,

    'fallback_cb' => '', 'before' => '', 'after' => '', 'link_before' => '', 'link_after' => '',

    'depth' => 0, 'context' => 'frontend'));

    /* pre wp 3


    $k_option->display('Menu Manager Pages','show_basic');



    Tell me if that helps.


    Hi Noah,

    The coding that you supplied is already what is being displayed in the header file. How can I change this to remove the double line?


    Just create only one menu in the menu manager – if you only create one the first layer will be the main menu, if you create two menus then you’ll get two layers (category and page menu)


    I have a similar situation and not sure how to remedy.

    I only created one menu in the menu manager, but showing two lines of menu on the top.


    I have been having the same problem, too. That was one MAJOR reason I asked for the demo file, so I could see what is being done in what way.

    I think some of the answers i read here make it look like people are stupid (sorry for my strong language), but this defies an average technically-able person could easily do, and I am no average technically able person, of course, I am not so techie gifted, but I even teach a thing or two to those who have called themselves WP experts in the past.

    So guys – designers and programmers for Kriesi – think about always including demo content in the sales download, those who are technically gifted can just delete the demo content, but it will save people like us a lot of trouble!

    So, you have at least 3 people having this problem. I have been trying to get a solution since Friday.



    As you may notice from the frustrations I have been having trying to customise this theme, i just didn’t give up.

    Now I have found a solution!

    See this thread: (Purchase code hidden if logged out)

    Apparently, all you need to do is name the Menus First, Second, etc. Don’t try to be too smart with it. Even though it should have given that margin for people to use their intelligence such as naming them Pages, Categories, Main, Sub, etc.

    I hope this help, because it is helping me.

    That is ONE problem out of 10 solved.

    A full demo content would have solved these problems!


    Awesome. Thanks for finding this.


    Thanks g7 for helping us out. The demo content doesn’t include the menus as menus can’t be exported at the moment. It only includes the fallback menu which is created automatically when you create a page/post.


    Hi everyone, thanks all for that help.

    i managed to get it working finally with the help of g7’s link. Cheers mate.

    Just one final question, where do I find the support documentation for Newscast? Im sure that if I could get my hands on that I would be a lot better off. I couldn’t see it in the zip file download after purchase?


    Business Advisor Network.



    The documentation should be included in the ZIP download. When did you download the file from Theme Forest?

    Let me know if the documentation isn’t included in the ZIP file available to download now, if so I’ll get a copy sent over to you and let Kriesi know to update the ZIP file.




    scratch that, i found it in the original zip file. I must have missed it the first time.

    while you are still here, im sure this is a basic level quesiton but i was just wondering how to set the information about the author that appears at the bottom of all posts? things like description and an image of the author, that sort of thing?

    Thanks for all your help,

    Hello there,

    maybe I do not understand something, please help…

    I would like to have only one Menu on my page at . The only one I need is the Category Menu and I do not need the small upper navigation (Page Menu) at all. Is it possible to delete it somehow?

    At the moment I have only one menu defined in Appearance/Menus but that one is visible at both places. (At WP-Admin/Appearance/Menus/Theme locations the Top Navigation Menu box is empty and the Main Navigation Menu shows the only Menu I have named Second).



    Ahhh, just one more thing connected to that: probably the gap between the logo and the Category Menu will be too big if we remove the small upper navigation – would you advise me how to make that smaller? Thank you again!



    delete following code in header.php – this will remove the top nav menu:

    <div class="nav_wrapper">
    <!-- Navigation for Pages starts here -->
    wp_nav_menu( array( 'menu' => 'First', 'menu_class' => 'nav', 'echo' => true,
    'fallback_cb' => '', 'before' => '', 'after' => '', 'link_before' => '', 'link_after' => '',
    'depth' => 0, 'context' => 'frontend'));

    /* pre wp 3
    $k_option['custom']['kriesi_menu_pages']->display('Menu Manager Pages','show_basic');
    </div><!-- end nav_wrapper -->



    thanks for the instructions, I have tried them. The small upper navigation was deleted although the Category Menu jumped up to the top of the page. It was ugly :(

    I found a better solution: I have changed only one word in the above code:

    'echo' => false

    It’s working!

    Have a good day!


    Glad that you found a solution. Yes I forgot to post a short css code snippet which would have pushed the catnav down :)
