    I have set up the mocha theme for a friend of mine but the navigation is not in the top bar with the site name. it is in a separate bar below it. I have searched high and low and have found mention of the custom menu widget in various mocha tutorial and descriptions but no real links to the correct widget and no instructions as to how to use it…

    The them in question is at http://anachavier.com

    Here’s a tutorial provided by StudioPress that will give you step by step instructions on how to use your menu http://my.studiopress.com/tutorials/use-navigation-menus/ It’s preety straight forward.

    Thanks for the quick reply but you didnt understand my question. On my install (http://anachavier.com) the mocha theme’s navigation is not in the header bar like it is on the studiopress theme demo on the studiopress site… I have the most recent install and it just doesnt work… Any thoughts?

    here is the mocha theme demo – http://my.studiopress.com/themes/mocha/

    here is my mocha install – http://anachavier.com/

    And if you dont see it – here are the two side by side – http://anachavier.com/mocha-prob.jpg

    Lens, I understood you correctly you’re saying your menu is not at the top of your page correct?

    When you install any new themes from StudioPress it will not setup like the demos because you also have to upload and install the (XML) which has the demo content. But you don’t really need the XML files if you just want to have the navigation menu in your header.

    Just go to your dashboard and choose Appearance > Menus, you will see Primary Navigation Menu, Secondary Navigation Menu and a drop down menu, Just following the turorial I linked ubove and it will help you setup your navigation Menu and let you place it at the top of your header section.

    Thanks again for the fast response but that is still not it. I have been through the tutorial many years ago and have set up at least 50 sites with studiopress themes using the menu function. I know how to do that. This is not that.

    The menu is not where it is supposed to be. Period. There are no options for putting it in the top bar anywhere on the theme or in its associated XML data. I tried that a long time ago = here is an install i did with the XML data and it made no difference.

    Note that on the http://mocha.anachavier.com/ install that NEITHER the primary and secondary navigation are in the header bar and there does not appear to be any way to make them be there.

    This appears to be a defect in the theme.

    Your website seems to be having a problem because it will not display.

    I have been able to fix it after viewing the HTML and editing the html but now i have to figure out where to fix it in the code. Unless there is a plugin or some kind of instructions i cannot locate to put the menu in the header bar it appears that i will have to edit Genesis itself which is a drag. There are a ton of articles about editing genesis online but NONE of them refer to the current version of genesis… When/if i figure it out i will poost it here, unless anyone has any other ideas?

    Create a custom menu and drag it to the Header Right. (screenshot here)

    You should *never* change the Genesis files.

    Actually that screen shot was what i was looking for – setting up the menu using that widget is not in the setup instructions and really should be. As simple as it was I dont feel that obtuse as when i did set up that widget it was aligning to the left under the site title! Still screwed up!

    Ok so i set the theme up multiple times with fresh downloads each time – i even went through and set it up with the sample data and it was still screwed up on all my installs except one! So moved both the Mocha and Genesis folders to the site where i want it to work and it worked… I had done some minor css editing so removed the copied Mocha and put my edited Mocha in its place and it finally works. There was something in the Genesis theme folder that was not letting the menu function properly…

    Just some weird glitch… Thanks for all the help!

    Hi, Lenz: I’m glad you were able to get it all resolved; you’re right, though – the instructions talk about creating custom menus, but didn’t tell you to put one in the header right.

    I’ll go ahead and close this as “resolved” – let me know if you need additional assistance!
