Second Menu on Home

    Is it possible with this theme to create a Second Menu and place it on Top of the main one?

    I need to differentiate some links for example, for support.

    I found some tutorials and they said to add these lines on the funtions.php but it doesn’t work.

    add_action( ‘init’, ‘my_custom_menus’ );
    function my_custom_menus() {
    ‘primary-menu’ => __( ‘Primary Menu’ ),
    ‘secondary-menu’ => __( ‘Secondary Menu’ )


    Adding these lines just tells WordPress that the theme contains a primary and a secondary menu. You still need to include the menu in the HTML template. Today I made something similar, I’ll share it with you:

    add_action( 'init', 'register_user_menu' );
    function register_user_menu() {
            // just registering the menu
    	register_nav_menu('user-menu',__( 'User Menu' ));
    // I'm injecting the menu in the 'enlightenment_before_header', you can also use a different hook for a different position inside the code, just take a look at header.php
    function enlightenment_before_header_bo() {
    	if ( is_user_logged_in() ) {
    	  // deleted this code, because it is website specific.
    	} else {
    // this actually creates a div and echo's the custom menu inside the theme
    		echo '<div class="top-user-menu">'.wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'user-menu', 'echo' => false ) ).'</div>';

    bo-oz Thanks.

    Just one question (sorry if It sounds dumb): should I use just the code you gave me, or booth?

    Do I use it all on the “enlightenment_before_header” page?

    Once again, Thanks!



    In the first part of the code I register the menu… you can customize this with your own code to include multiple menus.

    The enlightenment_before_header is just one place you can inject your own code… but the enlightenment template contains many of those places… so it basically depends where you would want the menu to show. Like I said, have a look at header.php to see which placeholders are there (or any other template file for that matter, footer.php if you would like to inject code in the lower part of the website).
