[resolved] Need Custom Navigation Menu Help (11 posts)

    Hello and thanks for reading. I have watched multiple videos on how to add the custom navigation menus to the template I am using and no matter what I do I can't seem to get it right. I am using kitchem-wp-theme found here. The main video I have been following about adding custom menus has been this. I have tried multiple times, but all I get are pages on the navigation bar. I really need help. Someone that can walk me thru it preferably. I'm not illiterate when it comes to this stuff I just don't think I have the menu name right or something small and stupid like that.

    I'm sorry but your chosen theme is not released under GPL. Non GPL products are not welcome in the WordPress community. Official WordPress policy states that all plugins and themes that are publicly released are required to adhere to http://wordpress.org/about/gpl/

    Any support requests for non-GPL products are usually ignored, in the interests of supporting the community and its freedoms. Also, given this particular theme provider, I would strongly recommend that read this article and consider changing to a theme from a reputable source asap.

    Thanks for responding so quickly. Can you explain the articles you shared with me in plain simple terms? Do they pretty much mean that I'm not supposed to edit them?

    It means that we will not support your theme here as your theme's provider is not releasing themes under the GPL license.

    Ok where do I find a theme that is supported under the GPL license? I'm clueless as to all this stuff because I thought if it was downloadable and editable that it was allowed. So I apologize if I have done something wrong.

    I like the theme that I have with the 3 separate columns and photo across the top. Is there a theme similar to this you recommend using that is supported under the GPL?

    The problem here is that your current theme isn't editable. If you try to edit the footer.php file, your site will stop working. This is a deliberate "crippling" of the theme by its developer/provider and is completely contrary to GPL.

    Ok. Thank you very much for informing me of this information. I guess here shortly I will be on the hunt for a new layout. One more question...if it is GPL approved that gives me the rights to edit it then?

    If it's GPL licensed, you can change any part of the theme to your heart's content. :-)
