I read in the documentation of Choices (very recent version) “Page Sidebar navigation”: “If you choose to display them you can chane the order of the page items by changing their “page order” in the page edit screen.” – but I cannot find the location of this in the WP navigation structure. In the pages overview screen you cannot change the order of pages.
Also I was wondering if the theme could display the current page in the Page sidebar navigation? That would help users I think.
For instance I have some pages now under the “About” page, but the sidebar navigation does not show the “about” page itself.
And is there some way I can have more control on where this Page sidebar appears like it was a real widget? There only seems to be a global option. Correct?
Finally: there is a small typo in the documentation on this topic: “chane”==>”change”.
I believe that is referring to page hierarchy. Since the sub menu displays the parent>child relationship for the given child page. You can modify the order by hitting quick edit under a page (in the All Pages section) and filling in a value in the Order field.
The sub menu is only able to be set automatically for now, that is correct. You could disable it and then use a plugin in its place if you wanted to have full widget control of it (there are a lot of options available for auto sub menus).
The ideas/changes I will mark for Kriesi as feature requests.
I have located the order field: thanks!
Regarding your suggestion for the submenu: can you make some recommendations for the plugin?
I don’t have any specific recommendations no. Typically I just make custom menus for anything like that and organize it all manually. Just to give me complete control. I have not needed something automatic for a big site in quite a while so anything I last used is years old at this point.
