    Hello! Beyond some maybe glitches regarding being able to load all options into the Customize section for GP Premium, I have one first question as I learn to use GP:

    I am building a landing page (this website is not a blog and will consist of only pages, mostly an artist’s portfolio)

    Landing will have full-width panels, one on top of the other. I would like the navigation menu to show up at left in a sidebar on the bottom of those two panels.

    Can do? If so, how?

    Hi there,

    Are you able to provide a quick example of what you’d like to achieve?

    Let me know 🙂

    It should work if you set the navigation location to left sidebar:
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/navigation-location/

    The header can is in a separate container so it can be full width no problem:
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/header-layout/

    Can you give this a shot and let me know if anything is missing?

    Let me know 🙂

    Can the header contain an image, not a background image?

    I do not see any way on my dashboard to replicate the instructions here. Are these instructions from some earlier version of GP Premium?

    Hi there,

    what is going in the top section ? Would the Header Element achieve what you require then the sidebar and following section will fall below that?

    the only thing I want in the top panel is an image with caption.

    can’t seem to figure this out

    Have you looked at the using the Header Element ? You can then set the Featured Image to display above the content area.

    Also: I need to know how to place different menu and different menu placements on particular pages: the lower sidebar on the home page, and a different placement everywhere else.

    Is that possible?

    Different menu on different pages require a plugin like this:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/if-menu/

    As for navigation location, we will need a filter like this:
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/navigation-location/#generate_navigation_location

    I can help with the code if you can link me to the page where you’d like to do this.

    the lower sidebar on the home page, and a different placement everywhere else

    Not sure if I fully understand this. Can you explain a bit more? An example will always help 🙂

    I would like the homepage to have two panels, one on top of the other. The top panel is just one image, on a black background (which might link to another page but without the site-wide navigation menu on that panel.

    The bottom panel will also have an image on it, on a white background, aligned right, with a sidebar at left containing the website’s standard navigation.

    Both panels the same size. Standard footer.

    Earlier in this thread there is a mock-up of what I am after.

    . . .

    Is there a list anywhere on the forum or docs of recommended plugins?

    In addition to this menu challenge, I will need to make multiple galleries.

    The website is for a painter.

    THANK YOU!

    Choosing your navigation location with a function…

    this looks like it might work. I only need to make the change on the front page. every other page will have the same menu location. and the menu will be the same on every page, just the location on the front page will be different.

    so: remains to make the Header work as an image panel that is matched exactly in size with the panel below that will be a regular content panel.

    I have no experience with Elementor, have used Atomic Blocks. It seems that if I can get up to speed with Elementor, that is the better bet.

    Unless GeneratePress works well with Divi Builder? I have the most experience with that builder.

    Please advise.

    Thank you.

    Take at look at this image:
    https://www.screencast.com/t/oYplJhgzW

    – The red section can be done with the default theme header.
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/adding-header-logo/

    – The blue section is the navigation in sidebar as we already talked about.

    – The green section can be done with header element:
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/header-element-overview/

    Is there a list anywhere on the forum or docs of recommended plugins?

    Unfortunately no.

    GP works well with all page builders.

    Can we please tackle one thing in one topic at a time? It’s getting quite messy in this forum and hard to track.

    Thanks 🙂
