Two menu items selected in the main menu

Do you wish to create a widgetized homepage and a separate blog page with WOO canvas theme without getting two menu items (home and blog) selected in the main menu? You have checked your settings over and over again and can’t find how to solve it?

Short explaination Since there are two menus for the same setting, you must make sure that both the settings are the same (3a and 3b), otherwise it will create both the Home menu item and the Blog menu item to be “selected” when entering Home.

 

WOO Canvas Widget Areas

In this example we are utilizing the Homepage widget to widgetize our homepage

 

Do control the following steps:

1. Check the Page Attributes for your actual Blog Page.

Open the Blog Page

Check the Template section

Template: Blog is the correct value

 

Wordpress - page attribute

WordPress – page attribute

2. Make sure you have created a custom home url link

Check your dashboard’s Appearance / Menus
If your menu item for “home” is a custom url link, you have done it right.

custome-home-url

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If not, you need to add a menu item called Links and write the actual url and Add to Menu.

Save the menu.

add-link

 

 

 

 

 

 

3a. Check your dashboard’s Appearance / Customise menu and look under the Static Front Page setting

Front page displays: Your latest posts is the correct value

 

customise-theme

 

 

 

 

customise-theme-menu

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Customize-theme-widgetized-homepage

 

 

 

 

 

 

3b. Check your dashboard’s Settings / Reading menu and look under the Front page displays menu

Front page displays: Your latest posts is the correct value
Settings-reading

 

 

 

 

Settings-reading-window

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Short explaination Since there are two menus for the same setting, you must make sure that both the settings are the same (3a and 3b), otherwise it will create both the Home menu item and the Blog menu item to be “selected” when entering Home.

 

 

I hope I’ve helped you solve the problem!
