Working with the navigation block and WordPress Menus

We get quite a few questions about how to add a menu to a website so we created this screencast to help guide you through the process.

It’s a quick tutorial but if you have questions, post in the comments!

Have different layouts for posts and pages with WordPress and Headway

If you want your posts and pages to have different layouts, you do not need to customize each and every page/post. You will simply customize 2 layouts and then rely on layout inheritance.

In the layout selector, choose the Single layout and build the layout that you want all posts to use. Note: You can also build it as a Shared Layout and apply that to the Single layout.

Make sure you save it! Then, edit the Single » Page layout

hw37-posts-pages-2

Build the layout you want and save. Now, ALL posts will use the Single layout and all Pages will use the Single » Page layout. Easy, right?

Note: Any posts or pages you’ve customized indvidually will use that layout instead of inheriting the respective layout.

Naming wrappers and blocks in 3.7

You might notice that new wrappers and blocks show without an ID next to them in Grid and Design Mode. That is because we switched to a different way of assigning IDs (UUID) that makes them completely unique but also very long (but much more stable). Instead of identifying your wrappers and blocks by thoseContinue Reading
