Kinetic features an array of elegant, professional and exclusive menu systems. Here you can read an overview of
the menu configuration options.
Selecting your Menu Style
The theme allows you to choose from 4 menu modes:
- dFission Menu - dFission Menu, an advanced dropdown based CSS menu. It supports both jquery powered transition and animation enhancements for its dropdown.
- Suckerfish - The versatile dropdown menu is an option to minimize library conflicts and improve site performance.
- SplitMenu - The venerable SplitMenu is a solid choice for navigation. It works by rendering the top-level menu options horizontally, and the submenu/child items are rendered below in a separate level.
- No Menu Bar - Setting the menu type to "none" will remove the horizontal menu as well as the menu bar graphics making the header flush with the main content giving you more control over the appearance of your site.
You can designate which menu type you want to use on your site with a single control in the theme configuration.
To have specific menu items appear as sub items, you must assign them to the specific navigation item in which they will originate from. The following tutorial will show you how simple it is to create your ideal menu system.
For this example, we are going into the primary links menu but the technique is exactly the same for all menus in the Administrative area.
You will then be transported to the Menu Manager for primary links. At this point, you can do two things. The first is to edit an existing menu item, which we will be doing in this tutorial or create a New menu item to be subordinate to an existing item. Click on the item you want to be part of the dropdown menu.
You can now assign the content item to the mainmenu item in which you want to be in the dropdown menu. Identify the "Parent Item" section of the manager. You will select the item in which you wish to be the parent and the source of the dropdown menu.
