This theme supports 4 types of menus: a primary menu, 2 separate social icons menus and a footer menu for your gallery links.

As mentioned, this theme features 2 separate locations for your Social Icons to be displayed. You can use the same social links menu to be displayed in both locations or you can create 2 unique menus for each location.

Primary Menu

This menu allows for link children. If a link as children it will allow for a dropdown menu to appear when the link is hovered over in Desktop mode and a clickable slide-out feature in Mobile.

Anything deeper than one level of link children will not show and/or break the menu.

Social Icons Menu

Footer Gallery Menu

This menu is specifically for the use of adding links to your most visited and or popular gallery categories or albums. This shines a spotlight on the chosen links you choose to display.

Tip: Try to keep the link titles under 25 characters.

Footer Widget: Photo Gallery Feed

Put a spotlight on your photo gallery using the full-width photo feed from your Coppermine Gallery's latest uploads in the footer of the theme.

To display the latest uploaded images from your Coppermine Gallery installation you will need the help of the free Coppermine plugin CPMFetch.

CPMFetch PHP Code:

Copy and paste this code into a PHP-enabled widget in your footer section:

<?php include "../cpg/cpmfetch/cpmfetch.php";
	$objCpm = new cpm("../cpg/cpmfetch/cpmfetch_config.php");
	$options = array('windowtarget' => '_blank', 'tablestyle' => 'cpmfetchtable', 'imagestyle' => 'tooltip image');

Important: Make sure you have installed a WP plugin like PHP Code Widget, as PHP code doesn't work in widgets.

Footer Widgets

This theme displays (3) widgets in the footer. Go to Appearance → Widgets and add widgets to the Footer Widgets panel.
