One is referred to as Fixed NavBar and the other as simply NavBar. While both of these elements can appear in the "Header" template area, only the NavBar is Drag and Drop capable.
Just as the name suggests, the Fixed NavBar travels with the user's scrollbar. With the Fixed NavBar, you can rest assured that your visitors attention is directed toward your content. For more information on focusing your user's attention, click here.
Here is the check box that enables or disables the Fixed Navigation Bar. Once checked, it will automatically be added to the top of your site.
Here you have the option to upload a logo that will appear left aligned in your Fixed NavBar. If you choose not to use a logo image, the default Site Title will be displayed instead.
The two NavBars come with 5 selectable themes. These themes control the background color of the bar, and text color of the menu inside the bar. This allows you to adapt the NavBars graciously to fit into nearly every design, and you have the ability to select them independently!
The NavBar and Fixed NavBar use the Wordpress Menu System, just like the Nav Classic and BrandNav sections that existed in previous versions of PageLines Framework. In this section, you can select which menu you would like to use for each navigation bar.
Tip: This option is extremely useful when you want to highlight new or different content on your site. Just create a menu tailored to that content, and select it from the drop down list in the appropriate NavBar. If you plan on using both NavBars, it is good practice to use two different menus to avoid navigation redundancy.
Yes! The only step you need to follow to enable drop down menus in the new NavBars is indent the menu items you want in your drop-down menu.
Important: If you utilize the drop-down capability in the NavBar and Fixed NavBar, remember that the first Menu Item is not a link, and only serves as a label.
