No, don't create an empty file. Just copy the sample phplugins file (phplugins-pangolin-sample.php) and rename it something more like mysite.php and then select this in the page template under advanced setup.

Following menu works for me.

	function pallet02_top(){
	
		echo '
			<nav class="nav nav_v">
 
			<ul class="primary-menu menu mouseable">
			<li class="menu-item"><a href="#1">Menu item 1</a></li>
			<li class="menu-item"><a href="#2">Menu item 2</a></li>
			<li class="menu-item"><a href="#3">Menu item 3</a></li>
			<li class="menu-item"><a href="#4">Menu item 4</a></li>
			<li class="menu-item"><a href="#5">Menu item 5</a></li>
			</ul>
 
			</nav>
			';
			
	}

thats exactly what i needed thank you smile

i know starting with a blank file wont work thats why i was asking what else i need to add hmm
i have looked at it and its just not written in a way that i get when i switch it on in the phplugins bit it just turns the page red

#7 Re: Backlight 2 Support » multiple menus » 2018-09-13 02:44:47

okay (sorry about this i feel this being a public discussion will help others though as i am litterally just copy pasting and deleting things to see what it does learning in the process)
So i have been testing this code in the pallet 01 copy area just so i am able to see the changes quicker on mobile and desktop versions of the site.

<li class="pallet_top_nav"><nav class="nav nav_">
<ul class="primary-menu menu mouseable">
<ul class="menu-item"><li class="menu-item"></li></ul></li><br />
<li class="menu-item"><a href="/test/">Menu Item</a></li><br />
<li class="menu-item"><a href="/test/">Menu Item</a></li>
<li class="menu-item"><a href="/test/">Menu Item</a></li>
<li class="menu-item"><a href="/test/">Menu Item</a></li>
<li class="menu-item"><a href="/test/">Menu Item</a></li></ul>

it copies the look of my existing nav menu and displays on both desktop and mobile in the way i want it to.
Now to integrate it into PHPlugins
Assume that it is a completely blank .php document with this script in that i will point to in the list with no other PHPlugins turned on.

What do i have to add to this script so it displays only in pallet 1 beneath the copy text area?

#8 Re: Backlight 2 Support » multiple menus » 2018-09-13 00:48:06

All of this would be solved with menus that collapse on mobile.
Essentially what I want to do is write a bunch of articles and have them appear on a specific page with what is effectively a table of contents for them.
As the menus do not collapse on mobile the amount of eventual pages would just make the mobile menu very messy.
So what the intention is to have a single menu item on the main menu leading to the page with the articles.
Yes I know that I could achieve this with wordpress but I do not want wordpress on this site.
So far the best option is the one Matthew suggested but obviously having to hard code each menu item isn't ideal so I was hoping for alternative suggestions that do not break the look.
I suppose I could duplicate the nav menu and set a different menu for that page. That would give the impression of collapsed menu's in mobile

#9 Re: Backlight 2 Support » multiple menus » 2018-09-12 17:55:47

Before I do that it's worth asking is it possible to set up an album that rather loading the full screen image loads pages I create?

#10 Re: Backlight 2 Support » multiple menus » 2018-09-12 15:33:20

Okay I know a bit about the phplugins but not really used it.
I have found the menu section you mentioned
Here is what I want to do can someone give a couple pointers on how to modify it.
I want the menu to appear in palette 1
I want it to inherit the colours and style of the main menu
And finally I want it's links and sublinks to be what I put in a particular menu set named "example" in this case

#11 Re: Backlight 2 Support » multiple menus » 2018-09-12 07:51:23

or even just the html code to copy paste into the column that we just need to fill in with the name of the created menu would be fine.

#12 Re: Backlight 2 Support » multiple menus » 2018-09-12 06:10:56

i want to maintain the main menu at the top but have the second menu vertical

#13 Re: Backlight 2 Support » multiple menus » 2018-09-12 06:01:19

So here is what i want to do is have the majority of my site in one column with the main navigation where it should be at the top but i want to set up another menu in pallet 2 area for pages that are set up as 3 column layout that I do not want listed in the main nav menu
but i am not sure how i would implement this.

I am pretty sure its a simple solution that i have missed.
in full screen the drop down menus act as they should click on them and they drop down.
in mobile all are listed and i think it would be more tidy if they collapse under the headings they are connected with
