Standard Navigation not working

Hi all ,

I Tried the standard navigation function with the template being as follows .

<perch:before><ul class="nav float-right"></perch:before>
            <li class="nav-item"<perch:if exists="current_page"> class="selected"</perch:if>
            <perch:if exists="ancestor_page"> class="ancestor"</perch:if>>
            <a href="<perch:pages id="pagePath">"><perch:pages id="pageNavText"></a>   
            <perch:pages id="subitems" encode="false">
        </li>
<perch:after></ul></perch:after>

The output i get is this .

<ul style="list-style: none">
    <li>
        <a href="/sample">
            sample
        </a>

    </li>

                </div>

Do let me know if im doing wrong here .

Hello Titus,

The HTML output you included doesn't seem to match the template. How are you outputting the navigation? Are you specifying the template?

Sorry my bad .

     <perch:before><ul class="nav float-right"></perch:before>
            <li class="nav-item">
            <a href="<perch:pages id="pagePath">"><perch:pages id="pageNavText"></a>   
            <perch:pages id="subitems" encode="false">
        </li>
<perch:after></ul></perch:after>

Output is

  <ul class="nav float-right">
            <li class="nav-item">
            <a href="/sample">sample</a>     
        </li>

I donot understand why the ul tag is not being closed . Also there are supposed to be two pages i.e Home and Sample . THis only shows Sample

Update :

When i use the below template for navigation , the error happens :

<nav class="navbar-dark fixed-top border-bottom border-light ">
        <div class="bg-scroll-menu"></div>
        <div class="row">
            <div class="col mobilemenu align-self-center">
                <h4 class="text-center text-white"><i class="fas fa-search"></i></h4>
            </div>
            <div class="col p-4 text-center text-white">
                <h4>Shades Properties</h4>
            </div>
            <div class="col p-3 align-items-center d-flex flex-column mobilemenubtn justify-content-center"><span class="menu-bar"></span>
                <span class="menu-bar mt-1"></span>
                <span class="menu-bar mt-1"></span></div>
            <div class="col-md-7 p-4 menudies">          

                <perch:before>
    <ul class="nav float-right">
</perch:before>
        <li<perch:if exists="current_page"> class="selected nav-item"
     <perch:else>
         class="nav-item"
    </perch:if><perch:if exists="ancestor_page"> class="ancestor"</perch:if>>
            <a href="<perch:pages id="pagePath" />"><perch:pages id="pageNavText" /></a>   
            <perch:pages id="subitems" encode="false" />
        </li>
<perch:after>
    </ul>
</perch:after>

            </div>
            <div class="col-md-2 bg-white text-primary nav-item align-items-center d-flex justify-content-center menudies menu-z font-weight-bold"> <i class="fas fa-comments"></i> &nbsp; &nbsp;Make Enquiry</div>
        </div>
        <div class="mobile-menu">

            <div class="position-fixed bg-primary text-white w-100 hidden-lg" style="bottom:0%">
                <div class="gradient position-fixed" style="position: absolute;
        content: '';
        width:100%;

        background-image: linear-gradient(180deg, rgba(255, 255, 255, 0), rgba(0,0,0,1));
        z-index: 10000"></div>
                <div class="col-12 text-center ">
                    <h5>Call Us | Email Us</h5>
                </div>
                <div class="col-12 text-center py-4">
                    <h5><i class="fab fa-facebook-f"></i> &nbsp; &nbsp; <i class="fab fa-instagram"></i> &nbsp; &nbsp; <i class="fab fa-linkedin-in"></i> &nbsp; &nbsp; <i class="fab fa-twitter"></i></h5>
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
    </nav>

But when i use just this alone , it works !

                <perch:before>
    <ul class="nav float-right">
</perch:before>
        <li<perch:if exists="current_page"> class="selected nav-item"
     <perch:else>
         class="nav-item"
    </perch:if><perch:if exists="ancestor_page"> class="ancestor"</perch:if>>
            <a href="<perch:pages id="pagePath" />"><perch:pages id="pageNavText" /></a>   
            <perch:pages id="subitems" encode="false" />
        </li>
<perch:after>
    </ul>
</perch:after>

What is the difference in both , i literally couldn't find out .

 <?php
    perch_pages_navigation(array(
        'template' => 'Nav.html',
    ));
?>

Passing the navigation like this .

The entire template will be repeated for each item in the navigation, with the exception of the perch:before and perch:after sections. Those are displayed once, before and after the items respectively.

Yup , I know realize how dumb that question was .
