Hi,

I'm modifying a Wordpress theme. The standard menu should show in case A and a newly created menu should show in case B. I already hard coded this in the theme, but how to call the second menu i created in the admin?

This calls the standard menu: wp_nav_menu($args);

How to change it to another menu? Calling it by name would be easy i think.
How to do that?

Thanks!

You're already 90% of the way there. Read the reference on wp_nav_menu to learn how to call a specific one:

Thank for your reply Jason!

I did! But it's not really clear to me how to call another menu based on its name (or something else)  instead of the standard menu.
Thanks

We're volunteers and other stuff takes precedence over your question.  You need to be patient and allow us time to respond.

But it's not really clear to me how to call another menu based on its name (or something else

The example is in the documentation linked above:

<?php wp_nav_menu( array('menu' => 'Project Nav' )); ?>

Open in new window


Replace 'Project Nav' with whatever you named the menu in Appearance | Menus

And yes i know how it works.
Of course i look things up myself before asking it here. Normally a quick Google provides the answer in seconds. So i did come across the page you mentioned but didn't fully understand it. That's why i asked.
