Support » Fixing WordPress » Allowed Number of Menus in WP 2017 theme

  • I’m using the old wordpress theme CORALINE. It hasn’t been supported for a couple of years. My site crashed and I think it’s because the theme hasn’t been updated and isn’t compatible with the newest update 4.9.5. I’d like to use for now WordPress 2017 free theme until I can find a nice premium theme.

    Question:
    I have 15 menu items on the Coraline theme I’m currently using.They don’t fit across in one row, so There are a total of 3 rows of menus. Does WordPress 2017 have a limit to the number of menu items? Can the menu be in multiple rows? If there is a limit, is there a file and code that can be modified to expand the number allowed to 15.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    It’s not what’s allowed, it’s what fits in the design. You may have to restructure the menu to have fewer items at the top level. Or you may have to find a different theme. You could also use custom CSS to adjust the size of the menu font and the spacing between items.

    In the first message I forgot a couple of other questions about migrating my site from old Coraline theme to new WordPress 2017 theme.

    1) I have pages with nextgen plugin galleries. the pages are formatted with a grid of thumbnails. When I change theme to the new theme (wordpress 2017 theme), will I have to recreate the galleries from scratch or will the pages of galleries still work and be formatted correctly?

    2) I want to add a store. Can I do this? If so, is there a good e-commerce plugin that works well with WordPress 2017 theme?

    Thanks all for your help! Greatly appreciated!

    Thanks Steve. On the old coraline theme, I couldn’t do it either, but on the forum someone helped me with a line of code tells number of menu items, increased the number and it worked. It just stacked the menus on top of each other in three rows. But I can’t find the thread or an email of it. Perhaps there is a similar place where one can edit this code.

    1. Probably not.
    2a. Sure, but is 2017 a great theme for a store? I have my doubts. Give it a try.
    2b. Store plugin? https://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce

    Look at the storefront theme as good start for store or check for other woocommerce and e-commerce themes.
