    Hey!  I’m using alora for our School District.  I’d like the Top-Menu on the District Page to automatically replicate to child pages in the multisite environment.  I’d also like the replicated top menu to auto-update any time the top-menu on the main page is modified.

    I tried using a couple plugins (namely Network-wide menu) without success.  Is there a way I can accomplish this?

    Thanks!

    Nope…BBCodes/Buddypress doesn’t solve it.

    Hi Alok.  I’d like the top menu on my main site (www.district96.org/home…must be logged in to see the alora theme) to replicate across the subsites in my multisite installation (www.district96.org/blythetest or http://www.district96.org/amestest for example).

    Roman, that’s the plugin I attempted to use, but could not configure it correctly for the Alora theme.  When activated, it copied the main menu (not the top menu) to BOTH the top and main menus of the sister pages.

    Would you be able to take a look at the plugin code and let me know what needs to be edited to allow the plugin to copy JUST the top menu across the sister pages?

    No rush…but I do have a deadline of Nov.11th to have the web page up and going… 😉

    Thanks for your help and attention to this post.

    Looking at the plugin forum page, it appears that the theme needs to have a “Theme Locations” meta box for menus.  I don’t know if the Alora theme has that.

    “<span style=”font-family: Lato, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 21px; background-color: #f5f5f5;”>You have to be using themes that add theme support for menus, register at least one native menu and displays the menu on the front end by calling wp_nav_menu(). You only get the menu slot (Menu Location) in the menu screen if the add_theme_support is called by the theme.” (</span><span style=”font-family: Lato, sans-serif;”><span style=”font-size: 14px; line-height: 21px;”>http://i.imgur.com/xfHi8.png)</span></span>

    Just uninstalled and reinstalled.  Working better.  Now I can get the MAIN MENU to replicate across the sites, but not the TOP menu…no matter how I alter the code, I can’t get the TOP menu to replicate.  Your assistance is appreciated.

    Good news.  Mind providing me the code that could accomplish this?  I can’t seem to figure it out.
