Alternate Headers and Footers

These don't work as documented. I know of two workarounds:
  1. If you only need a special header or footer for one template, you can just remove the line that says:

    HTML Code:
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    (or its footer equivalent) and paste in your custom header or footer code into that template.

  2. If you want to reuse your header or footer in other templates, you're probably better replacing

    HTML Code:
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    (or its footer equivalent) with something like

    HTML Code:
    <?dynamic_sidebar( 'custom-header-or-footer' ); ?>
    and paste in your custom header or footer code into that sidebar widget.

Exclamation Unlimited Menus

Unlimited Menus

This a workaround past a limitation that's not clear in the documentation, rather than an actual bug. At:
Dashboard > appearance > menus
It says there that mz supports 2 menus, but there's an easy way around this limit. You can put a sidebar anywhere, and put any custom menu into its widget. So far, I haven' t seen any limit as to the number of custom menus or sidebars that mz allows.

[Moderator note] The Montezuma theme provides two menu areas as defined by WordPress theme guidelines. Montezuma has a nice 'feature' where you can add 'widget' areas in lots of places (the dynamic_sidebar() code). You can put any widget you want in one of these areas including a menu widget.

This is NOT a limitation and it is not mentioned in the documentation because what you put in a widget area is not theme related.

Great clarification, Juggledad.

Thanks,

Jerry.
