1.1 WordPress General Settings Site Title and Tagline

The Navigation Module offers a number of options for adding navigation elements to your Layout. To get the most power out of this feature, use WordPress' built-in Menu Editor to create your menus. You can then select to use one of these menus in the Navigation Module Settings. (Figure 1.1)

Adding the Navigation Module

To add a Navigation Module to your Layout, click Add Module and select the Header Module from the list of available Modules.


Header Module Settings

Once the Header Module has been selected and added to the Layout, the Modify Header Module Settings box will appear. Customize the settings of the Navigation Module by selecting from the following options.


Available Navigation Module settings include:

  • Name - To help identify widget locations
  • Site Title - Specify “Show Site Title,” “Use Custom Site Title Text” or “Do Not Show Site Title”
  • Tagline - “Show Tagline,” “Use Custom Tagline” or “Do Not Show Tagline”
  • SEO - Recommended or custom settings for tags and divs
  • Sidebars - Add Sidebars for widgets to the left, right or on both sides of the Header Module

Click the Save button to save the Header Module Settings. You'll now see the Header Module added to your Layout.

Advanced Notes

The Legacy Menu Types are present as a fallback in case you have not configured any menus in the Menu Editor. The Builder menu types can be configured in the Builder's Theme Settings. The WordPress Pages option uses WordPress' built-in wp_list_pages function to show a listing of all of your site's pages.
