WordPress From Bootstrap to WordPress Create Bootstrap Styled Theme Templates Creating a static front page

Different navigation style from the homepage (front-page) and inner pages

In my website, I am using two different navigation style. The homepage navigation is different than the inner pages. You can take a look at the demo site here: http://atulesh.com/beta. When you click on the About Me page, you will notice a different behavior of the navigation.

Now, i want to put a condition for the navigations to appear as such. When the page is front-page.php (i.e the static homepage) it should load the nav with 'x' class. But when there is other page than the front-page, it should load the nav with 'y' class.

Can someone help me to achieve this through the functions.php. I dont want to do any hardcoding or something that can disturb the website.

Looking for some positive solution on this, since I am not an expert and very new to wordpress with little knowledge of php. I am just trying to build my website by myself.

Help appreciated.

<?php if(is_front_page){ $args = array( 'menu' => '', 'menu_class' => 'x' ); wp_nav_menu($args); } ?>

Add some logic if its front-page display menu with different class.

oh nvm i didnt see u want it just in your functions.php. i believe you can use the same logic with wp_enqueue_script

Thanks Andrew for your reply. However I tested the below solution and found it working, provided by Colin Marshall. Thanks again for your help :)

if (is_page('home')) {
    get_header( 'home' );
} else {

    // Code for header for pages that aren't the homepage goes here
