WP Nav Menu with Theme Location Support

Here’s a box for WP Nav Menus that also provides Theme Support for the menu.
This is required if you’re trying to use a menu plugin such as UberMenu.


Upload and Activate the box. Make sure you’re uploading the zip if you’re doing it via the admin panel
Create a VZM WP Nav Menu box in the Skin Editor and put it where you want the menu to display.
Update the Template
Go to Appearance > Menus and assign a menu to your newly created Theme Location.


Thesis Classic Full-Width

** Update **
This skin is no longer needed as of Thesis 2.0.1. You can now import full-width data into the Thesis Classic skin via the Manager, which you can download here (make sure you only upload the txt file to the manager)

Here’s a “quick and dirty” Full-Width version of the Classic Thesis skin for anyone looking for a full-width starting point.


Thesis 2 Copyright Box

My version of the copyright box that was discussed during Rick’s webinar.


Updated to 1.3
Added $arg support for Thesis 2.0.3

Updated to 1.2
Added URL support and the option to open the link in a new window
Remove the default property from the class as it’s inaccessible by the output function anyways

Updated to 1.1
Made some minor changes to how the options are displayed in the admin panel and fixed the domains for translate()

To activate it go to… Thesis > Boxes > Select Boxes > Upload Box

Once activated it will be available to you in the Skin Editor.

So I recently started playing around with WP Multisite to get ready for a project I’ll be doing down the road.  With Thesis 1.8.4 they’ve added better support for multisite, but there were a few things that were missing for my purposes. [click to continue…]
