Adding menu links

Menu links are groupings of links for navigating between different sections of the website. The website's main content areas are usually organized in a horizontal navigation bar located between the header and main content area. The links in this navigation bar are called the Main menu.

Adding menu links to content on your site

  1. Visit the page on your site that you want to add as a menu link.
  2. Click the Edit tab, then scroll down to the bottom set of tabs.
  3. Choose menu settings.
  4. Check the box to Provide a menu link.
  5. Give it a short label.
  6. Choose a setting for Parent item: This will place the link either in the main horizontal navigation bar, or a drop-down under one of the links.
    1. Choosing Main menu places the link on the horizontal navigation bar.
    2. Choosing a different page under Main menu will place the link in a drop-down below the selected parent item.
