    Page Navigation Bar shortened to fit

    My Navigation Bar has been reduced to 3 menu (2 + "More" dropdown) since I mad the last update Jan 2, 2020.  I have an entire screen open for menu items, and only three show up. Ugh! Spent an hour on the phone with GoDaddy and all I got was "Change your Theme".  Anyone else missing their menu items with the Navigation Bar across the top?  Anyway to fix it without changing my theme and reformatting my site for the new theme?  They're delusional if they think I'm redoing my site because they can't fix something.  HELP!  We are a small non-profit with limited human resources.

    I think this has been explained at some point, but basically the themes that are available are built (coded) in a containerized fashion. So, the menu container, in order to be responsive and uniform across all platforms, has a finite area it can occupy on that theme.

    Some themes tend to allow more in the way of screen real estate, such as the side-bar vertical layouts. It's a limit to the current design based on the software.

    The Websites + Marketing platform might not be for you. It sounds like you'd like more control over the design of it. I would suggest checking out some of the many other CMS options out there and find one that suits you.

    Hi @ALOHAaz,

     

    Welcome to the Community!

    Just a quick note on experimenting with the change of theme in the Websites+Marketing plan. A change of theme (to see if it will satisfactorily solve your issue) does not require you to redo the website. Trying a new theme (or changing it back) will fit your existing pictures, text, etc into the new design. We suggest backing up the website first so that you have a quick copy that you can restore to at any time. 

     

    To change the theme, just go to the editing dashboard and choose "theme" in the menu on the right. When you click it, you'll be prompted to "try a new look".

    Ugh!! My navigation bar all of a sudden shortened also. I've spent days trying to figure out why it would change all of a sudden. Its extremely frustrating, as it worked just fine before, and now it screws up my home page. I've been extremely happy with GoDaddy up until this point, and have recommended them to others. But if they can't fix something that wasn't even broken in the first place we may be looking else where for a provider.
