How to Edit the Navigation

You can add, delete and edit links in your navigation module. To access your navigation structure select Content > Pages > Navigation.

From the navigation module you can manage your main navigation related to your main and secondary site navigation items.

NOTE: Creating a navigation item does not create a new page automatically for you.  Your navigation is used to link visitors to an already existing piece of content on your website or external to your website.

Create & Edit Editor

The Editor has a few inputs that make creating a navigation link a breeze.

Inputs:

LABEL: The label is the text that is shown for your link

CONTENT:  Choose the content you would like to be displayed from your current pages, sermons, articles, blogs or events

           ENTER A URL:  Use this input instead of the content input to link your visitors to outside links

PARENT:  If you choose a parent for your link then the link will be nested under the parent.  In this example below our link will show up under the Contact Us navigation item as a child.

OPEN IN NEW WINDOW:  Select this input to have your link open in a new browser window or tab depending on your visitor's settings.
