What is a Configuration?
A Configuration is a set of settings that can be applied to a menu. For example, one configuration could be:
Current Submenu Expansion: Enabled
and another might be
Current Submenu Expansion: Disabled
Using multiple Configurations allows you to have different settings applied to different menus.
Configurations are also re-usable, so you can use the same Configuration for multiple menus without having to re-configure every setting.
How to create a Configuration
Out of the box, Bellows has a default configuration known as the Main Configuration. The settings can be managed in the Control Panel under the “Main Configuration” tab
To create additional Configurations, click the + Add Bellows Configuration button on the right of the Control Panel
Give your Configuration an ID, which will be used when applying the Configuration to a menu. Click Create Configuration
Refresh the page to see the new tab for your new Configuration
You can control this Configuration independently from the main Configuration. For example, you could set the skin on your +secondary Configuration to Blue Grey, and leave the Main Configuration skin set to Blue.
To add a menu using your new Configuration, simply pass your new ID as the config_id parameter, for example in the shortcode. This will be generated for you in the Integration section of the Configuration tab, or via the Menu Generator UI
As a demonstration, you can now apply different Configurations to the same menu. So these two menus have the same contents, but different Configurations applied:
[bellows config_id="main" menu="27"]
[bellows config_id="secondary" menu="27"]
