I'm assisting a nonprofit with their Wordpress website after their previous designer exited the building and I'm trying to figure out what is preventing me from changing the order of the main navigation menus. Using the Page ordering of the main pages of each menu with the 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc. does not work. Trying to adjust them in the Appearanace -> Menus settings does not work, as the theme says it supports 0 menus, and so far I am stumped.

Not sure if something in the custom code is overriding everything else but if anyone can help me solve this riddle that would be most appreciated.

Thanks!

Probably.  Check the header.php for the theme to see how the menus are being generated and if the previous designer used a WordPress function, the Codex will tell you how to alter it to have your preferred order.

Try to register the menu like that:

register_nav_menus( array(
	'header_menu' => 'Header Navigation Bar'
) );

Open in new window

Than in the header.php file replace the existing nav bar code with:

<?php

$defaults = array(
	'theme_location'  => '',
	'menu'            => 'header_menu',
	'container'       => 'div',
	'container_class' => '',
	'container_id'    => '',
	'menu_class'      => 'menu',
	'menu_id'         => '',
	'echo'            => true,
	'fallback_cb'     => 'wp_page_menu',
	'before'          => '',
	'after'           => '',
	'link_before'     => '',
	'link_after'      => '',
	'items_wrap'      => '<ul id="%1$s" class="%2$s">%3$s</ul>',
	'depth'           => 0,
	'walker'          => ''
);

wp_nav_menu( $defaults );

?>

Open in new window


This will return a <ul> containing a list of the links and pages you added from Appearance -> Menus.
