    Hello,

    I’m using the Work-a-holic theme, and for some reason the top menu won’t show on my site. I’ve set up two pages and divided my ‘posts’ into two categories: portfolio and blog. There are supposed to be three menu items on top: ‘over’ ‘c.v.’ and ‘blog’. Everything has to be set up right, but maybe I’m missing something?

    The URL to my site is: http://www.michielstax.nl

    Hope someone can help me with this!

    Hi,

    Fixed it indeed. I don’t know if it is the right way, but I installed the menu buttons manually with a bit of code I found on another blog with the same theme. And.. it worked!

    This is the code (to be found in ‘header.php’)’:

    <!-- Navigation -->
        <ul id="menu-navigation" class="sf-menu"><li id="menu-item" class="menu-item menu-item-type-custom current-menu-item current_page_item menu-item-home menu-item"><a href="http://www.michielstax.nl/blog/">home</a></li>
    <li id="menu-item" class="menu-item menu-item-type-post_type menu-item"><a href="http://www.michielstax.nl/blog/over">over</a></li>
    <li id="menu-item" class="menu-item menu-item-type-post_type menu-item"><a href="http://www.michielstax.nl/blog/category/blog">blog</a></li>
    </ul>

    Because this is done manually, you can’t update or add any links via the wordpress cms.

    Hope this helps! Good luck!

    hey thanks.
    yeah that works.
    but I’m not going to get the functionality of being able to select a category from the work on the front page.
    I really like the way you can sort by ‘art’ feature ‘music’ and ‘sports’ under portfolio http://demo.graphpaperpress.com/workaholic/
    ughhh. wasted too much time messing around with this. shame because it’s a perfect solution for me if it worked the way it should!!
    is there a way to start again??. when I upload the theme again, it keeps all my settings. I want to start from scratch and upload the theme again to see if the menu is in tact.
    thanks for the reply though!

    The theme uses the Custom Menus option which you can setup under the Appearance menu in your dashboard by clicking on Menus and creating a menu for it.

    thanks!
    works now.

    for anyone else having the same confusion – I was clicking the ‘+’ icon in the menus section here….that doesn’t work.

    you need to just keep one menu item and add to it to create the different categories.

    thanks JarretC
