Personally I don’t particularly need support with this problem, partly because I used a workaround to get past the issue. I thought support/devs should know about it, hence this post. The workaround was drastic however – I had to restore my whole website via my host’s (Kinsta) tools, so I had a fresh copy of Marketer. I did this twice.
The problem concerns the Customize/Layout/Primary Navigation/Navigation Logo adjustment tool. (Remove/Change Image).
Please hear me carefully. When I removed the logo, the functionality disappeared! In other words; the Changing Image button worked, but on two occasions (no save involved) when I removed an image I found that the actual buttons disappeared from the customizer. I tried refreshing, saving and some other troubleshooting but that made no difference; I was unable to add a new image because the buttons and section of that panel had gone – the bit between Navigation Search and Navigation Logo Placement. A site restore/fresh clean reinstall of the theme fixed it. (This was yesterday & I quickly ‘solved’ the issue with a restore; so I did not clear cache, disable caching or CDN, nor disable plugins – that said, it didn’t seem like a caching problem or plugin conflict to me.)
Currently, I have a version of my own logo in situ, which is working fine, so in that sense the issue is resolved. I can still see the Navigation Logo part.
I am new to GeneratePress and Kinsta, but not WordPress (since 2007), managing websites (since 1999) or IT (since 1981/programming). I’m not an expert but not a noob either (except with GeneratePress and Kinsta). It’s not as far as I can see a ‘noob mistake’ – there does seem to be something wrong somewhere. It’s concerning too because I wonder what else, if anything, might go wrong.
I hope this helps.April 30, 2019 at 2:05 pm #884845TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
This is actually intentional in 1.8. Check out the “Navigation as Header” section on this page: https://generatepress.com/gp-premium-1-8/
We made it so turning the navigation into a header is a one-click process. We’ll be updating all of our sites in the library using the nav as a header to this new option ASAP.
Sorry for the confusion!
Let me know if you need more info 🙂April 30, 2019 at 2:12 pm #884853Leon Rowan
Thanks so much for your help Tom. Great support!
This explains it: “In 1.8, we’ve removed the Navigation Logo and placement options if you’re not using them, and added a Navigation as Header option. This option will only show up if you’re not using a Navigation Logo.”April 30, 2019 at 2:21 pm #884860TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperApril 30, 2019 at 2:27 pm #884869Leon Rowan
I will have a look at the new nav/header option down the track as what I have is OK for now and I have to get the rest of my site moved from my old host (top-tier) – I am having to move it manually, in part because of the problems I had over there – and my new site set up correctly; along with message/marketing changes – the disaster at my last host happened right in the middle of these latter. Lots of work! (I have Elementor Pro also).
