I started to update this site so that it passes the google mobile friendly test. As a result I have two sites, one is the desktop version and one is for mobile devices. My desktop menu bar has 3 items “Home”, “About”, “Contact”. I wanted my mobile site to have a completely differnet menu, I wanted it to show categories in the menu bar.
The problem is that WordPress does not allow you to specify a different menu for a mobile site or a desktop site. I stumbled on an easy way to assign a specific desktop menu to a desktop site.
- Create two menu bars. WordPress > Appearance > Menus, call one menu “desktop-menu” and call the second one “mobile-menu”. Assign the Mobile menu bar as primary navigation so that it appears on both Mobile and Desktop sites.
- Now to assign the Desktop-Menu to the desktop site. Locate your header.php for your theme your theme wp-content > Themes > your theme > header.php. Locate the navigation section and change the wp_nav_menu from ‘primary’ to ‘desktop-menu’ Now your Desktop site will use the deskto-menu you created earlier
