  1. Excellent tutorial!

    I wasn’t aware you can paste HTML in the Navigation Label field, so this is a nice tip.

    Also great to see tutorials about Extra – we want more!

    Possible idea: how to use the Posts Carousel and the Featured Posts Slider, not only in category pages, using the category builder, but on any page?

    Or more generally: a tutorial on using the category builder, and what you can achieve with it, because I feel a little sketchy in this area…

    Thanks!

      Thanks Yuda! I’ll see what I can do on those. I can say however that the category builder and the page/post builder are two different things. They cannot be used together on the same page. That said, we can definitely explore more use-cases for the category builder as it’s incredibly powerful.

      • The impossibility of using the category and page builders on the same page is really a big drawback! I want to set up a magazine-style blog in which I also want to offer permanent information and services. How should get around this? Write a blog post and then link to a page in the post? Any other suggestions…? I’m sure I’m not the only one wanting to achieve this!

          You can use the ads, code, and image modules to make offerings on your category pages for your services.

  2. Hey Nathon,
    You write a great tutorial again for Extra lovers.Thanks.

    I want to ask you how we can decrease the height of Slider on Home Page.
    Its take almost whole screen.
    See my blog http://www.dynamikskills.com

    Thanks for Help in Advance!

      Funny you should request that! I was just trying to figure that out yesterday and found that the height of the slider is determined by the image size defined in the theme. I’m working on figuring out a work-around for this. Will publish my findings.

      • Thanks, Nathan
        It’s really amazing, i will be grateful and awaiting when you publish your findings.

          Try navigating to the custom css tab of the featured post slider in Extra. In the text box for “Post Entry” enter this css:

          max-height: 450px;

  3. Can this process [logo added to secondary menu] be used in the Divi theme too?

    Thanks so much for all the great tutorials.

  4. Excellent and a solution I was needing.

    I’m interested in submenus with images

    Thank you.

  5. Excellent post,

    What type of font do you have in the logo?

    Thank you!

  6. Hi, my logo is going on the right side of the page, how can I get it to go on the far right like in your example or what I’m I doing wrong?

    • Sorry, I meant far left.

  7. Amazing article
    Your latest add logo information helpful in my project.
    Thanks for sharing this great tutorials.

  8. Hello,
    I want the last navigation point as an CTA.
    Other Background, Color etc.
    For instance the Hootsuite Website

  9. Nice to see an Extra post… yes please do more like this 😀

  10. Thank you for share. best tutorial. previously I have problems with this. but now, already missed

  11. Hi Nathan!

    I do have a specific request for an Extra tutorial – we talked about this at WordCamp US at the museum!

    I’d like to be able to make the Extra primary menu have an “Inline Centered” logo style, like Divi has in its settings. I still haven’t had any success figuring that one out!

    Thanks for all your great content!

  12. Hi, great post. I would love to see more backend information on how to achieve different styled posts, such as those saved in the live demo posts for Extra.

    It would also be very helpful to learn how to remove the “Designed by Elegant Themes | Powered by WordPress” text stuck on the bottom bar. I know the Divi theme makes it very straightforward how to alter this text, but Extra doesn’t seem to offer a simple solution.

    Thanks for your work!

  13. I would love a good translation tutorial on Extra. As we now have quiet some issues with translating to dutch; Also maybe is it is nice to combine skills and let users translate and share those translations i am up for Dutch.

  14. Maybe I’m doing it the hard way by adding CSS and I just can’t find the menu options for it, but I changed all my social icons to have colour instead of being grayed out until you hover over them. I just think they are more inviting that way. I also added colour to the star ratings and small comment bubbles.

  15. I would like to request more tutorials on how to customize the header section. What I would need is for the secondary navigation to contain two kinds of links (internal: aligned to the left and external: aligned to the right). The search box and social icons should be in the same row as/next to the logo (aligned to the right). The main navigation links that are displayed (on desktop) to the right of the logo should instead be in a separate row underneath the logo.
    Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!
