    I have created a couple of pages and I am not getting anything in the submenu located on the right side of the page. Am I missing something?? Also, is there a way to change the heading to the submenu to match the top level in that menu string?



    Go to Appearance > Menu. Create a new menu. On the theme location select the newly created menu.




    Will this mean I have to create one for each main menu and do all the subs as well??


    Hi sfranks12,

    I think Ismael thought you meant the main menu. The sub menu nav should work as long as you use the WordPress options to set your pages up to have the parent child relationship. So just make sure to set the Parent in the Page Attributes meta box on the right hand side of the page editor.




    Ok did that for all my pages and still nothing showing up…



    I’m sorry but if you look at the Display theme demo, you cannot see any submenus. http://www.kriesi.at/themedemo/?theme=display

    I think what you meant is the sidebar widgets. Go to Appearance > Widgets > Add the Pages widget on Displayed Everywhere widget area. You can also create a new menu on Appearance > Menu then going back on the Widgets, add the Custom Menu widget on the widget area available.




    Please look here: http://www.kriesi.at/themedemo/?theme=display Then Click “About” You will see the Submenu on the left…


    OK.. I figured out a way to have specific menus for specific pages, but have no idea how to get them to display on those pages.. here is my logic:

    I have a parent page and say four children pages, I create a custom menu and called it what the parent page is called. I can use the custom menu widget. NOW here is the problem, I do not know how to get it to show on ALL the pages (Parent and children) Any ideas??


    Here is a site using WordPress and this theme and as you can see they have the menus for the pages and everything looks and works great.. any ideas??




    I already told you the answer. Create a new menu on Appearance > Menu then go to Appearance > Widgets. Select the Custom Menu widget and place it to Displayed Everywhere widget area. It should be shown all over the site.




    And I did what you said… Nothing… I even tried a widget to let me select the proper pages to have it on and STILL nothing..


    UPDATE: I figured the widget out to do what I wanted.. but now, how do I get rid or hide the submenu from the sidebar?



    First, you want to show it and now you want to hide it? I’m sorry but this is a bit absurd. Can you give us a link to your website? Please also include a screenshot of the area you want to hide.




    well.. I wanted to use it, but after some looking around I found some widgets that did what I wanted. Here is the website:


    If I do a screen shot how will I have it so you can see it? I am new to wordpress and not sure how to do that here…


    The auto generated sub menu is done by using the wordpress hierarchy for pages. If it isn’t showing, it isn’t set up correctly.

    If you want to just skip it and go the widget route using what you have set up so far, add this css to the bottom of your style.css file:

    .sidebarmenu {
    display: none;




    Bingo! Thanks…


    Glad we could help :)

    Let us know if you have any other questions or issues.
