How to Edit Menu Sections

First Login to the site and click on the EDIT menu. Click on the paper/pencil icon for the menu that you want to edit. This will take you to a record that allows you to edit the menu name. After you make changes, click OK to save your edits.

How to Add New Menu Sections

To add new choices to your menu, click on the + next to the current menu (see above illustration). This will take you to a record that allows you to add a menu name and an alpha sort order. If you already have menu sections with an a, b and c, make sure you put d as the sort order for your new menu entry. After you add a new menu section, click OK to save it.

When a new section is created the system will automatically create a Section Landing Page so that the user has somewhere to go when clicking on the section name.  You can edit this page as you would any other content page.

In the site section record you need to input the following fields:

Name: This is the name of the section that appears in the site section list.

Active: This must be set to true by checking the box for it to appear on the live site.

Caption: This is the language that will appear in the site navigation header. If you choose to use a graphic for the menu by uploading a .gif in the menu image field then the caption becomes the text for the alt tag.

Default Template: This is the default template you wish to use for the site section pages.

Default Content:  Allows you to define the default content definition for the section.  Content definitions allow you to define different content editors for the section.

Menu Image: This allows you to upload a graphic (.gif) for the header navigation. (Note: if you choose to upload a graphic the software will not reformat the graphic to fit in the space it will display the graphic as you have uploaded it.  So you need to make sure your image is the correct height and color to match your header navigation.)

Menu Roll-over Image - This allows you to upload a second graphic (.gif) for the header navigation to cachieve a graphic effect when a user mouses over the section ame. (Note: if you choose to upload a graphic the software will not reformat the graphic to fit in the space it will display the graphic as you have uploaded it.  So you need to make sure your image is the correct height and color to match your header navigation.)

Hide from menus- Checking this box removes this section from appearing in a navigation menu

Block from Users - Checking this box allows you to block the entire section to a group; this block flows down to all the pages within the section.

Alpha Sort order - This field defines the order of the section in the navigational menu

There are tabs in the section records as well, the tabs are as follows:

Java Script- Works the same as the tab in page content.

Select menus - Allows you to include this section in more than one navigation menu.

Content Blocking - Allows you to choose the groups that will have access through the block.

Control - Same as page content record.

How to Add Sub-Menus

To add new choices as categories underneath a menu item, click on the menu item. This will take you to the page for that item choice. 

At the bottom of the text, click on the +, which will take you to a record where you can add a sub-menu Name, which will appear underneath the main menu item as a choice and a Headline, which will be the title for the copy on the page for that sub-menu. After you add a sub-menu, click OK to save it.

How to Delete Items

To delete menu choices click on the paper/pencil icon next to the menu item you wish to delete. When the menu record opens, click on DELETE RECORD. To delete text boxes from a page, click on the paper/pencil icon next to the text box you wish to delete. When the text record opens, click on DELETE PAGE to delete that item.
