Menu not displaying in 'Sight' theme
I’m using this theme
Which has a navigation menu above the slider in the demo, but for the life of me I can’t figure out how to get it to work.
I’ve tried creating a new menu in Appearance -> Menus and setting it accordingly, disabling all the plugins, etc. I’ve checked their support forums but they’re pretty inactive and anyone with the same problem as me has either had not had their question answered or came back to say ‘nevermind, fixed it”
My site is located here,
Can you take the header.php file from the original theme and paste it over your website’s header.php file?
That does bring a menu in, but it’s all over the place. This is the themes original header.php, I’ve tried modifying it to looks more like my old (tried matching up the container ID, etc)
You should really avoid modifying the theme’s files. You can end up compromising the theme and your modifications will erase when the theme updates.
Instead make your modifications through a Child Theme.
I’m sorry but as you are using a commercially supported theme, you need to seek support from the theme’s developers.
The forum is inactive. Here is someone who posted with a similar problem August, 2011 – no response
We better listen to the moderator, sorry.
I’m sorry that the theme’s developer does not not appear to support his/her theme any longer but we do not support themes that were not downloaded from wordpress.org. It is not our place to keep theme developers in business or deprive them of any income that they may derive from support services.
I an only suggest that you consider switching to another theme.
I understand that it is a free theme but the wordpress.org support forums are meant for the core application, themes and plugins that are distributed on wordpress.org. Not for themes downloaded from other, often commercial, sites.
To anyone finding this via Google I solved this by deleting all my menus and starting fresh.
