A few days ago, a WordPress user new to the Genesis Framework asked me whether it is possible to display tailored secondary menus on specific pages. All pages on the website should get the same primary menu and – besides a few exceptions – the same secondary navigation menu. The exceptions should get their own specific, secondary menu.
