    I have to admit to being confused on special menu bars on specific pages on websites. In the past on weaver II Pro, I could use a premain code of [weaver_extra_menu menu='Bangkok' style='menu_bar' css='padding-left:0px; padding-right:0px;'] in the custom areas, and set the page to ignore the standard main menu. This would show a special menu in its place called ‘Bangkok’.

    Now with weaver xtreme, I’m not sure how to code this. What I want is to replace the standard menu with a custom menu, specific to pages. I can’t have it on the widget area, as this doesn’t go in the right place (and anyway the dropdown doesn’t work.) I reckon the shortcode of [extra_menu menu_name='Bangkok' menu_style='primary' menu_type='horizontal'] should be right, but how do I get the page to see it (Do I put this in a custom field, and if so what name?). And do I need any special custom css rules?

    Please see http://www.nickysgaypattaya.com/gay-pattaya/news/openings-and-closings/archive-bk/ for an example. The special menu has disappeared.

    Thanks

    Exactly the same principle as weaver II, and extra menu shortcode in a page custom field with the name of the insertion are you want to use.

    Here are all the current ones

    So right now you would need to use the Container top area (custom field name container_top ). In the next version, weaver is adding the equivalent of premain which was indeed missing.

    Almost got it. That’s certainly got the menu in the right place. I used a shortcode of [extra_menu menu_name='Bangkok' menu_style='primary' menu_type='horizontal']

    In the custom css rules, I have .extra_menu .menu_bar ul {margin-left:2px; }

    However, please look at http://www.nickysgaypattaya.com/gay-pattaya/news/openings-and-closings/archive-bk/

    The menu is not giving main and dropdowns, it’s all on one line, making a huge menu out of things. It should look like http://www.nickysgaypattaya.com/gay-pattaya/

    Thanks

    If you had read the help of the extra menu, you would have noticed that type horizontal is not what you want 🙂

    You want standard
