I'm trying to create a Welsh-language translation for my website, and the Polylang plug-in works fine in terms of allowing me to link posts and pages in the two languages. However, I keep running up against a "Your theme will only support one menu", so I have to choose either Welsh or English. How do I get a second menu?

Hello Martin,
you may add second Menu to the theme.
1.Add another Horizontal Menu control to the header. Remember its "Menu Name"
2.save theme and open WP admin back end;
3.open Appearance >> Menus and create new menu;
4.switch to Menus >> Menu Locations tab and assign new menu to Location (Menu Name) from step 1

Aileen

Thanks, Aileen
That gives me two menus on screen, and at least the potential for a dual-language solution without having to employ a proper language switcher.
