[closed] Version 2.0 has moved the menu! (6 posts)

    I have updated to 2.0 and the menu has moved from the right hand side to the centre and looks awful. How do I get it back to the side - not bothered if its right or left - just not in the centre!

    Hard to be of much help without a link, but the original menu was positioned to the left. It sounds like you have a child theme or custom CSS that's no longer working. You may need to re-apply your custom styles to the new CSS classes and IDs (this was a major update, the theme's structure has changed.)

    I don't have the ability to create a child theme and only ever used whatever was available with virtually no changes. The link is http;//secretfocus.co.uk if it helps.

    Before the recent update the menu was to the right above 'archives' and in the same style as 'archives'.

    I see also that my header title has also changed onto two lines instead of one and images and text have moved all over the place on some pages.

    I will have to spend a lot of time sorting this out so not very pleased!

    Hope you can help.

    Yes, it helps. Always post a link if you can, there's really no better way for us to see what's wrong than to look at the problem directly.

    You didn't have a menu assigned to that area before, and now the theme adds one by default. The fix: Create a custom menu by going to Appearance -> Menus and leave it blank (don't add any menu items). Then assign it to the Primary Menu area (dropdown menu to the left). The default menu will be removed.

    Then you can re-add the Pages widget (or whatever widgets you want in place of Archives, etc.) by going to Appearance -> Widgets.

    The length of the site description has changed, but you can tweak the CSS if you don't want it to wrap to two lines.

    First create a child theme for your changes so they don't get overwritten by future theme updates, or you can install Jetpack and use the Custom CSS module.

    In your child theme's style.css, or in the Custom CSS module, add this:

    .site-description {
         max-width: 100%;  /* or whatever value you need. */
    }
