Header & Navigation Settings


I'd like to do 2 things with the header and navigation bar.

1 - If you look at the website you will notice that every single catagory is displayed as a link in the header. How do I get rid of that?

2 - In the navigation bar, there are two rows...an upper and lower. The lower row is redundant to the Community drop down link in the upper row. How do I eliminate the lower row?

I've looked around the settings and haven't been able to find a setting for these items.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    Hi Jeff,

    There's not an option for that in the interface. What you'd have to do is make a quick edit to one of the theme files: /bp-daily/library/components/buddypress/buddypress-navigation.php

    In that file, you can just delete everything and replace it all with the following:

    <div class="page-navigation">
    	<?php wp_nav_menu( array('theme_location' => 'primary', 'menu_class' => 'sf-menu', 'container' => '', )); ?>
    	<div class="clear"></div>

    That should leave you with just that one menu area. Please let me know if you have further questions on that!

    Hi David!

    Thanks for the info.

    I copied the file to my desktop. Then I deleted the existing code, and pasted your exact code into the file. Then I copied it back to the same directory that it came from.

    The site looks the same. Did I do something wrong?

    Thanks for your help,
