    Hi,

    I am using enterprise theme which has 2 Nav menus,

    however, I am struggling to find a way to control the second menu/sub menu
    so it changes automatically depending what is the category/slug

    Because I am trying to migrate old site to Genesis.. manually selecting sub menu for each post/page seems like a lot of pain with almost 2,000 posts/pages..

    i have found some plugins to control widgets based on category, but no luck with conditional menus..

    genesis-subpages-as-secondary-menu  plugin – is no good, does not work on posts, only pages

     

    any help would be really appreciated, I can’t imagine I am the only one trying to achieve this :)

    Take a look at Genesis Simple Menus Plugin - http://www.studiopress.com/plugins/simple-menus

    It says you can change the secondary nav menu by category.

    It took me a while to get back to this issue,

    Yes, I am using Genesis Simple Menus plugin, but it does not allow me to set automatically secondary menu based on the slug,
    I have to change it manually.. for 2,000 or so posts :(
    that;s why I wondered if there is a way to make it pick the correct secondary menu based on the slug that is used

    So you want to display the sub nav for posts in specific categories or on category archive pages?

    I would like to show sub menu for all pages and posts
    each post belongs only to one category

    here is one page (blue is secondary menu)

    http://opentuition.com/acca/

    and here is another

    http://opentuition.com/aat/aatunit30/process_sales_and_receipts/

    these are strictly “wordpress pages”, (but later on, for the acca as one category there are many posts belong only to it

    while aat is another category.

    so, this post – should display proper aat menu, not default secondary menu
    etc.

    I hope that makes sense?

    What you can do is remove either the primary or secondary menu conditionally.

    How many menus do you want to display on pages and posts?

    uhm, not sure I understand,
    both primary and secondary menu are always visible,
    Only the content of the secondary changes (or rather, a different menu becomes the secondary menu) based on what category the post belongs to (or the slug of the post),

    Have you tried the Genesis Simple Menu’s plugin?

    Otherwise you will need custom code with conditional tags.

    I’m assuming you want to display a different sub nav depending on which category your posts are assigned to.

    How many menus have your created?

    Still not clear on exactly what you want.

    sorry, it;s my bad english :)

    here is the post link

    http://opentuition.com/acca/f3/depreciation-example-5/

    (it has ‘acca’ in the slug, it belongs to ‘acca’ category.
    and yet, the submenu – is the default secondary menu,
    not the menu I have created specially for this category ‘acca’
    using simple menu plugin. I can set the secondary menu to ‘acca’ but it has to be done manually for every post.
    so, that’s sucks :)
    I want to find a way to make it automatically..

    the the description, Genesis simple sidebars might work (if I could replace secondary menu with the widget area..
    I will try this plugin and see if it works the way I expect.

    thank you for your time.

    Alright, I think the solution to my ‘problem’ is to create a custom category templates with Genesis

    does anyone know of good tutorials?

    thanks
