    Hello,

    In your documentation of the Choices Theme,we can read that it is it possible to create subheadings for the main menu item. I managed to display the Description field in the backoffice, but I am unable to get the infomation on the front.

    I followed your instructions here:

    http://www.kriesi.at/archives/improve-your-wordpress-navigation-menu-output

    But I don’t know where to modify :

    “wp_nav_menu( array(

    ‘container’ =>false,

    ‘menu_class’ => ‘nav’,

    ‘echo’ => true,

    ‘before’ => ”,

    ‘after’ => ”,

    ‘link_before’ => ”,

    ‘link_after’ => ”,

    ‘depth’ => 0,

    ‘walker’ => new description_walker())

    );”

    Is there another way to do so ? Can you please help me ?

    Thanks and regards,

    Hello,

    Copy this code at the bottom of your functions.php.

    class description_walker extends Walker_Nav_Menu
    {
    function start_el(&$output, $item, $depth, $args)
    {
    global $wp_query;
    $indent = ( $depth ) ? str_repeat( "t", $depth ) : '';

    $class_names = $value = '';

    $classes = empty( $item->classes ) ? array() : (array) $item->classes;

    $class_names = join( ' ', apply_filters( 'nav_menu_css_class', array_filter( $classes ), $item ) );
    $class_names = ' class="'. esc_attr( $class_names ) . '"';

    $output .= $indent . '<li id="menu-item-'. $item->ID . '"' . $value . $class_names .'>';

    $attributes = ! empty( $item->attr_title ) ? ' title="' . esc_attr( $item->attr_title ) .'"' : '';
    $attributes .= ! empty( $item->target ) ? ' target="' . esc_attr( $item->target ) .'"' : '';
    $attributes .= ! empty( $item->xfn ) ? ' rel="' . esc_attr( $item->xfn ) .'"' : '';
    $attributes .= ! empty( $item->url ) ? ' href="' . esc_attr( $item->url ) .'"' : '';

    $prepend = '<strong>';
    $append = '</strong>';
    $description = ! empty( $item->description ) ? '<span>'.esc_attr( $item->description ).'</span>' : '';

    if($depth != 0)
    {
    $description = $append = $prepend = "";
    }

    $item_output = $args->before;
    $item_output .= '<a'. $attributes .'>';
    $item_output .= $args->link_before .$prepend.apply_filters( 'the_title', $item->title, $item->ID ).$append;
    $item_output .= $description.$args->link_after;
    $item_output .= '</a>';
    $item_output .= $args->after;

    $output .= apply_filters( 'walker_nav_menu_start_el', $item_output, $item, $depth, $args );
    }
    }

    Then open your header.php and find this code

    $args = array('theme_location'=>'avia', 'fallback_cb' => 'avia_fallback_menu');

    Place this snippet on top of it.

    $args = array('theme_location'=>'avia', 'fallback_cb' => 'avia_fallback_menu', 'walker' =>new description_walker());

    You can now add description on your menus. You may have to edit the style of your nav menus after this.

    Regards,

    Ismael
