[SOLVED] Adding New Navigation Area/Pulling in Third Menu Type


I’m building a child theme and am looking to add an additional navigation area to the footer, but I notice that when I want to pull in a menu via {load_menu name="footer" ... }, I have to specify the navigation area and not the navigation name.

Can you point me in the right direction for either a) adding a new navigation area, or b) pulling in this third menu a different way?


I think that it should be enough to have this in your themeplugin init: https://github.com/pkp/healthSciences/blob/master/HealthSciencesThemePlugin.inc.php#L84

and then this in a template: https://github.com/pkp/healthSciences/blob/master/templates/frontend/components/header.tpl#L77

This worked perfectly, thanks so much.
