Filter Genesis Navigation Menu to be 1 level on Home Page Only

A friend was asking how to make the Header Navigation on the Genesis theme Altitude Pro only be 1 level on the home page but show all the levels on the interior pages.

Here is how I suggested it be done

The inspiration came from Bill Erickson’s post on Customizing Menu Arguments.

I just added an extra statement to apply only when on Front Page

    This worked like a charm Loren. Thanks so much for putting this together. It absolutely made my life easier. I’m wondering if it would work with other genesis child themes as well. Maybe all one would need to do is change the label for the navigation if it had another name in that particular theme?

      Yes, technically it will work with any genesis theme. It doesn’t matter what theme it is nor even if it’s genesis actually.
