Definitely not a developer here, just a writer who maintains her own website. 🙂 Question that I couldn’t quite solve from searching the support forum:
What I’m going for is to only have primary pages in my top navigation: Home, Services, Sectors, About, and Contact.
But I have other pages I need to link to in various places throughout the site, including Process, Style Guide, Samples, etc.
My goal is to not have those nested as drop-down pages (as I do currently) but rather to have menu options linking to them in the footer. I’ve watched the menu builder options and tinkered in Stage, but I am clearly missing something.
Apologies for what is probably a rookie question with an obvious and easy solution! If you can help, I’d greatly appreciate it. Thanks friends.September 4, 2020 at 7:01 am #1430677DavidStaffCustomer Support
are these footer links going to be the same across the entire site?
If so you can create a new Menu ( in Appearance > Menus ) – but do not give it a location.
Then you can add an Appearance > Widgets to the Footer Widget. Use the Navigation Menu Widget and select your new menu
Let me know if thats correctSeptember 4, 2020 at 8:06 am #1430913Gidget Hall
Thanks David! Yes, the footer links will be the same for the whole site. Thanks for your help!September 4, 2020 at 8:10 am #1430921LeoStaffCustomer Support
Yup then you can either use the footer widgets David suggested – see the bottom of this site for example,
Or use the footer bar widget area as seen in Grill here on the right of the copyright text:

Leo the footer bar widget area in Grill is exactly what I’m trying to replicate. I have the copyright info on the left, and 3 links on the right to PDFs in my media library (privacy, cookies and site conditions). Currently I have added them as nav widgets, but they stack on top of each other in a column, rather than display side by side. Side note: also a web building newbie, apologies if this is a silly question!September 9, 2020 at 8:05 pm #1437408LeoStaffCustomer Support
I’m going to guess that you’ve added them in the footer widget area instead of the footer bar widget area:
If this doesn’t help, can you link me to the page in question?
