Hello and help please! The copy of Academy Pro I downloaded does not show a menu bar to the right of the site title; but the demo site does. I thought to use my purchased "MyStickyMenu" plugin to insert my menu headings; but now I seek a step by step tutorial on implementing the Menu settings already built into Academy Pro.
Here is where I need help. When I click on “Add items” under the text “Time to add some links! … Add as many things as you’d like.”, I am having trouble seeing what to do inside the five ‘pathways’ that open up (Custom Links, Pages,…,Tags).
I am asking only whether there is a place (URL) to which I could go to get detailed help on moving from the point where I am stuck.
Thanks in advance.October 1, 2019 at 6:53 pm #493818
The top red bar is called the "Top Banner". You access that through the Customizer - Academy Pro Settings tab. You can learn more about how to set up your theme by logging in to your my.studiopress.com account and reviewing the theme documentation.
For the menu, you need to create your content and add the pages/posts to your navigation. That's a WordPress function and not a theme function. Learn now to do that here - https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Menu_User_Guide

I owe it to StudioPress to help others who might have my issue by citing the following link: https://my.studiopress.com/documentation/usage/wordpress-features/create-and-use-navigation-menus/
The exposition on this page is very well thought-out and clear, and it solved my problem.
I am a decent programmer (though in a quite different field of programming), and I want say how immensely impressed I am with the quality of the functionality of menu creation available for Academy Pro. The only bother is that side-bar menus are not covered. Did StudioPress create this code or did the WordPress consortium? In any case it is great stuff!
I actually analyzed the menu creation code at lines 80 to 109 of the source code for the sample page for Academy Pro, and there are so many HREFs to the same file (or other Genesis files), as well as what look like specialized functions that I wondered how that approach could ever be generalized. And yet that is exactly what has happened in the functionality built into Academy Pro.
So ... good show! (And I am not even mentioning the quality of the documentation made for us clients -- a big investment, so thanks for this too).
