Pretty Chic Genesis Theme : Features Review :
Header Options : This genesis WordPress theme is powered by dynamic navigation bar. So you can choose upto 3 menus to offer access to important page and blog categories. If you decide to use all 3 menus then two are available for header : Header top and Header bottom. And 3rd menu is for footer area so visitors can still find links when they reach at bottom.
