I’m new to Genesis and trying to learn the ropes. Brad already opened my eyes a bit and I started to understand this framework….so excuse my noobness
Anyway, I’m trying to add a search form on the navbar (right side float)..since on the left side I have a bunch of menus. While this was a piece of cake in normal WP, I can’t seem to understand how I do this under Genesis. I registered a new widget area..but I kinda got stuck into placing it on the navbar. Where is the sidebar “template” and how can I add the hook there is actually my problem..I think
I appreciate any pointers you guys can give me.
There’s a setting to add a search box on the nav bar that is built in.
Go to Genesis -> Settings -> Navigataion. Enable the nav extras. pick the search box from the drop down.
I know about that one..however, that setting if for the primary navbar..and my child theme has 2 navbars, a primary and a secondary..the secondary is where I want this custom search field.
The secondary nav menu has no hook on the right side to add anything.
I know..but I’m sure one can be added …if only I would knew where That’s why I posted
No, I’m saying you *can’t*. There is none.
You need to switch it with the primary nav, or unregister the secondary nav and add your own.
You can;t add hooks. You *use* hooks. The core framework provides the hooks for your use.
You can use Nick’s Nav Menu Amplified to add a search box to the secondary menu – http://designsbynickthegeek.com/plugins/genesis-nav-menu-amplified.
