Adding menu options to Topbar, Header & Footer (3 posts)

    I'm very new to working with WordPress and code in general. I tried adding additional menus via code in the theme editor for Hueman. (Only one menu spot for Topbar, Header & Footer?). Now the admin login and the website login redirect me to this message
    "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING, expecting ')' in D:\Hosting\11658448\html\wp-content\themes\hueman\functions.php on line 84"
    How do I get the website working and how do I add menus correctly?
    I used this link but I'm guessing I followed the directions wrong.

    You would first copy the entire alx_setup function over to your child theme's functions.php (sample child theme download available in theme options, help dropdown top right)

    Then, where you see:

    register_nav_menus

    Just add your menu there to the 3 other ones. And then add the template functionality, that too via a child theme overwrite.

    Hi Alexander! Thank you for providing information & support. I have the child theme downloaded and my website back up. I registered new menus but I'm not sure how to add the template functionality on the child theme. The header.php, footer.php, etc. under the Template column doesn't seem to exist in the child theme editor. Is this where I apply the code..... <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'header-menu' ) ); ?>

    Thanks again!
