Hi, I haven’t downloaded this theme, therefore I don’t know if it offers any options in the admin panel in this regard. If it doesn’t the way to go is by adding and placing the menu items in the WP menu panel in the dashboard, and then styling the menu with CSS. There’s a video tutorial on how to build a WP theme and the design has a third level menu. Here’s the URL:
@fish991, looks like you need to make a PHP edit for this. Can you start by creating a Child Theme: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes ?
Thanks for the response Andrew & antonietta 456
I’ve created the child theme. I will now follow the links suggested and read more on the issue.
I’ll get back if I have any further questions.
Thanks again for the help!
Hang on, I don’t think you need to follow that webdesign tutorial.
Can you create a folder inside your Child Theme and name it “template”? Then within that folder, can you create a file and name it “header.php”?
E.g. replicating this: http://themes.svn.wordpress.org/zalive/1.2.9/template/header.php
Then in your Child Theme “header.php” file (within the “template” folder) can you paste all of the code from this PasteBin page into it: http://pastebin.com/ZP40U4Nu ?
I will do that now and get back to you.
Again thanks for the help!
I did as you suggested just to be clear, i created everything using the cpanel. Should I switch my theme to the child theme in wp-admin while I’m working on this?
Should I switch my theme to the child theme in wp-admin while I’m working on this?
Sure, or wait until after you’ve done the steps
Ok all the steps are completed and I’m working inside the child theme. My menu has changed some but I can fix that simply by adding the pages back to the correct location. Should I be able to see a third menu option yet?
I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to help?
In the dashboard if you go to Appearance > Menus and then set up your menu there, you should be able to create your 3 levels of depth. Before, the theme was constraining the depth to “2”.
Thank’s I’ll work on it and get back to you soon and update the thread.
I think I’m getting close? The menu changed and now it allows me to place a third page in the menu column under appearance, menu tab. It changed the color of the new menu but I fixed that with a little css. The only thing now is how to I get the third column to move to the left more?
