Header Drop Down Navigation (Where to insert the code)

Hello and thank you for such an excellent theme. Atahualpa 3 is superb!

I'm trying to insert a drop down style menu called "PixoPoint Multi-level Navigation Plugin". The docs state to insert "<?php if (function_exists('pixopoint_menu')) {pixopoint_menu();} ?>" within the header. However everywhere I put it, I never get a result that's acceptable. I want it below the search box across the entire header.

So the question is. Where in the header.php file to I insert
<?php if (function_exists('pixopoint_menu')) {pixopoint_menu();} ?>


Thank you in advance for your help....

I think I found where to put the code but I can't seem to get it to actually take.

The files is


The code that I need to change is

if (strpos($header_items,'%bar2')!==false) {
// Horizontal bar 2
$horizontal_bar2 = '<div class="horbar2">&nbsp;</div>';
// END of Horizontal bar 2

What I need to add is

<?php if (function_exists('pixopoint_menu')) {pixopoint_menu();} ?>

But when i replace &nbsp; with the code it errors the entire blog.

So I found that if I replace
$horizontal_bar2 = '<div class="horbar2">&nbsp;</div>';
$horizontal_bar2 = '<div class="horbar2">' . PHP_CODE_HERE . '</div>';
And insert
<?php if (function_exists('pixopoint_menu')) {pixopoint_menu();} ?>
It still errors on me

This is what I've tried using
$horizontal_bar2 = '<div class="horbar2">' . <?php if (function_exists('pixopoint_menu')) {pixopoint_menu();} ?> . '</div>';

Note that I've removed the two "." removed, spaces, removed chunks of the "<?php if (function_exists('pixopoint_menu')) {pixopoint_menu();} ?>" code and I can't seem to get it to work.

If someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong, that would be really helpful and appreciated!

Thank you

$pixopoint = ob_get_contents();
$horizontal_bar2 = '<div class="horbar2">' . $pixopoint . '</div>';

Hi Everyone!

Just wanted to say first of all, amazing theme Flynn! Great work.

I have a question about installing the same plugin in the Bar1, but the code for the installation of PixoPoint has changed..

They now require this to be input:
<?php wp_page_menu();} ?>

Following the ideas listed above, I input the code here:
// Horizontal bar 1
if ( strpos($header_items,'%bar1') !== FALSE ) {
$horizontal_bar1 = '<div class="horbar1"><?php wp_page_menu();} ?></div>';

Adding this had no effect on the site.. No fatal error tells me I'm on the right track though!
Do I need to add some code into the Bar1 options in the Ata Config header section?

Thanks in advance and enjoy your day!

PHP Code:
// Horizontal bar 1
if ( strpos($header_items,'%bar1') !== FALSE ) {
$pixopoint ob_get_contents(); 
$horizontal_bar1 '<div class="horbar1">' $pixopoint '</div>';

Please help...I am new to this and have no idea what I just did. I tried to insert the code for the dropdown plugin. It worked...but looked really funky. So, I followed this advice:
Free support
If you follow all of the instructions here, activate the plugin and find the menu is appearing on your site but looks messed up, then the problem is probably caused by a clash between your themes CSS and plugins CSS. These problems can usually be remedied by removing the wrapper tags which surround the menu in your theme. For example, most themes will have some HTML such as which contains the existing themes menu. By placing the pixopoint_menu() function between those DIV tags, the menu will often interact with that DIV tag. The solution is to either remove the DIV tag or to alter it's CSS so that it doesn't interact with the menu.

from this site

So, I deleted the DIV tags surrounding the pixopoint and now my page will not even load and I can no longer access the dashboard! Please understand I am a novice!

What should I do???
Thanks so much

Download a new copy of the theme and unzipped it. Then FTP a fresh copy of whatever file you changed. That will back out your change.
