Major Updates

When you have a lot of items in your menu and want to make many changes, follow these steps.

  1. Navigate to "Manage" > "Structure" > "Menus" 
  2. Click on the menu you wish to update
    1. Main menu: resides under the logo at the top of the screen
    2. Utility links: resides at the top right of the page below the red bar

Create Menu "Folders"

Menu "folders" are menu links that have sub-pages but are not clickable to go to their own page (like "Site Building" or "Content Editing" above). It is best practice to have all top main menu links be linked to a single page OR be a dropdown to other pages (not both).

  1. Navigate to "Manage" > "Structure" > "Menus" 
  2. Click on "Edit menu" next to Main menu
  3. Click the "Add link" button
  4. Type in the desired Menu link title
  5. Type in "<nolink>" for the Path
  6. Check the "Show as expanded" box
  7. Keep Parent link selected to "<Main menu>"
  8. Save
  9. Rearrange menu items to place pages in this "folder" with the drag-and-drop interface
  10. Save
