Updating Navigation + Quad Menu Plugin

We'll be providing specific steps, code, and processes to help guide you through managing changes to the main navigation which uses the Quad Menu plugin.

____________________

About the Navigation

The current Paradigm navigation has been highly customized. The documentation link (see below) provides documentation from the plugin developer (Quad Menu).

Additionally, the documentation we'll be providing for titles, subtitles, and icons requires updating CSS which could potentially break the site if not properly formatted.

Let's start by preforming safeguards to protecting the site from any potential scripting errors if they were to occur. 

____________________

Environment Backup

To safeguard against potential code formatting errors with changes to the navigation, preform a WP Engine backup of the environment. You can always revert back to a previous version and begin again.

Updating Titles & Descriptions (subtitles)

The current navigation is utilizing a navigation plugin called Quad Menu. The navigation has been highly customized, so the documentation link that we'll be providing may not always be relevant or work with the current navigation state.

Managing Icons

The developer has hardcoded these images/icons into the CSS file which means we need to follow a few steps to update the image/icon, when needed.

File Formatting Tips

Things to consider before replacing images / files:

  • file type
    • most of the icons being used have the file extension: PNG
  • file size
    • most of the icons are relatively small and should not exceed 500kb
  • file dimensions
    • confirm the file being uploaded is not smaller than 50x50px
