Menus

Menus help people to get around your website. You can add a menu marker in the template and where this marker is, your automated menu will appear. At it's simplest level, you simply add pages and the system will add them into the menu when you republish.

Under the menu set up page, you can build a menu structure with sections and subsections, within which web pages sit, so that you can have a deeper structure to your website.

The menu set up page has two views, one simple (for every day use) and a complex view, with more features for the menu settings. The complex menu set up view has the details below but also allows set up of the style and form of the site menus. Click here for more details.

Simple menu setup page.
On the simple menu set up view you have two sections

1) Add / edit menu headings


Type the menu heading for a new section in the Menu / sub menu box, add a display order number (1 appears higher in the list on a menu than 2, for instance). When you click 'add section' you need to have decided whether this is to be a new main section or whether it is to be a subsection (which will only show when a user f the website clicks the section that it is in.

To edit a section or subsection name, click 'Edit' in the section list (shown below).

2) Menu list


The menu list appears further down the page. This shows the sections and any subsections which may be within them. They are headings, which only show on the menu if there are web pages sitting in the section or subsection. In the example above, you can see 'Home', which is a main section and company history, which appears within this as a subsection. When producing a web page, it can be placed within either the section 'Home' or within it's subsection 'Company history'.
