[Pro] Perch navigation

I have a site, set up with FW and Perch, and would very much like to use the new pages functionality within Perch2. Such as, setting sites visible/invisible.

The Perch-staff told me, that I have to embed a Perch navigation content code:

<?php perch_pages_navigation(); ?>

Has anybody a hint, where to embed this code - and is it done through Crowbaractions?
Do I have to apply it to the page or to my CSS-Menu-Item?

Any advice or solution would be nicely appreciated.

In case you’re interested in the functionality -
the Perch documentation for pages navigation can be found here:

I would use Insert >Markup Item

Paste the code into that. OK the dialogue box and then resize and position (the Markup Item) on your page where you want it to appear.

At least that is what it looks like to me.

Hi Dave,

you mean, Insert>Markup Item - Page?
This Markup Item would then only contain the necessary code independently from my CSS menu for Perch? And the CSS menu is still on the page?

You aren’t going to be able to set up a Freeway CSS menu for the this. The Perch code is going to make the menu for you. The code you use in your markup item (not page markup) is simply a placed holder on the page for where Perch will insert a menu.

The way to get the menu to look a certain way is with CSS styling. If you want to control this from Freeway you will have to create styles with the Styles Editor utilizing the Extended option frequently to add styling foreign to Freeway’s general choices.

Hm, then I have to use an hmtl-item, apply the style, insert the markup-item and insert the <?php perch_pages_navigation(); ?> code.
But for a real simple top-level navigation, without submenu and navigation groups, to let Perch make the menu, what do I have to write between the brackets - I’m asking, cause, the Perch content tags were easy to embed, but this one seems to be difficult, any further guide for this possible?

Thanks

Is the point not that Perch autogenerates the menu for you? The code just pulls it into your page.

Haven’t used it myself (Perch) but I assume that is what its supposed to do.

Are you asking how to style the menu or how to set the various Perch
menu options? If it’s a styling thing then after you insert the Perch
code into your page you should see (at the very least) a basic menu. If
you then look at the page source in the browser you will see the code
Perch generates and you can use that as the basis for creating the CSS
to style your menu.

If your asking about the menu options as shown in the Perch docs they
give you a nice example of how to add the options you want.

Does that make sense?

Alternatively you could also open the default navigation template to see
how it’s coded or even modify it to suit your needs.

Thanks again Todd -
after some relief from FW and Perch I’ll try to approach the next step of navigation within Perch :wink:
