I looked around and couldn't get any answer that helped me.
I have an include that I am calling in multiple headers (I have different headers for different sections of a membership site that need different menus and resources.)
<div id="nav"> <div class="close-menu"></div> <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'menu' => $menu_name, 'theme_location' => 'primary', 'depth' => 1, 'menu_class' => 'main-menu', 'menu_id' => 'main-menu' ) ); ?> <div class="header-tools"> <div class="icon-list"> <a href="/help" class="icon help trigger-help" title="help"></a> <a href="/dashboard" class="icon account" title="my account"></a> </div> </div> </div>
and above the header in each header-x.php file I am declaring the $menu_name variable:
<?php $menu_name = 'Section 1 Menu'; get_template_part('template-main-nav'); ?>
I want multiple different menus I've created in the admin to go into the same location and this seemed like the best solution. The thing is I can't get the variable to pass, no matter how I format it. What am I doing wrong?
