Setting Up Menu(Process to Setup the Basic Menu with Minimal Setting)
Here, the basic to setup the menu in the plugin and displaying at least 1 menu in the frontend is being describd as follows.
1)You will have to enable the menu in the plugin first to make the menu display on the frontend which is the first checkbox in “Floating Menu Setting” page with setting header “Enable/Disable Menu”
2)Then, you will have select the menu for any of the specific position which will be listed inside each individual select option according to the menu position as assigned in the “Menu Add/Edit section”. For this, you should have created at least one of the menu from the “Add New Menu” section.
P.S. Few things need to be considered as you will have to check if the “Menu Position” or “Template Type” is being listed on the plugin list page or not. And If not, then you should go to the menu edit page and save the “Menu Structure” and “Display Setting” have separate save button assigned.
3) You will then have to select where you would like to display the menu. Available locations are all page, home page only, or any specific pages or posts.
4) That’s it and after you save the setting, your menu should show in the frontend.
Page Wise Configurable Menu
Here, the additional metabox field on page edit section on the right side allows you to control the different menu to be displayed or disable for that particular page too. You can either select any menu to display on that particular page instead any other default setting from “Floating Menu Setting” or disabled menu for that specific page.
How to Assign Page Specific Menu (Step wise Process)
– To assign page wise menu, please follow following steps.
1. Please go to “Floating Menu Setting” page and assign the default menu to the pages where you want to set the menu by selecting one of menu you have created and setting them to specific pages as shown on image below. Here as you can see, menu named “Floating Menu Demo” has been assigned to both pages where you wanted to display menu. So, you will need to check both the pages where you want to set the menu. This will tell the plugin to set default menu and display menu to those very specific pages.
2. After that, please go to specific page edit section and change the “WP Floating Menu Options” located at bottom right corner of screen and set the menu to different menu as shown on screenshot shown below ( Menu named “Custom Template Menu” in this case). So, this will tell the plugin to show the menu on this very specific page but not one set on “Floating Menu Setting” but the menu assigned in this very specific page.
Note: You can also disable the menu in this very specific page.
