Navigation Menu


Your Navigation Menu can be vertical on the left hand side of the page or within the website header. It consists of Menu Items to click that take users to the page to which the Menu Item is linked. You can perform a number of actions on the navigation menu items. Below you see the same menu displayed in Website Builder and Internet Explorer.



Navigation Menu Actions



This is how you perform the actions:


  1. You can rename the text of a Menu Item in two ways. You can highlight it by clicking once on it, and while highlighted, click on it once again. Now replace the current text with the text you prefer. Second, you can click on the Page Properties icon [] and change the Menu text.


  1. To remove a Menu Item, highlight it by clicking once on it and then clicking the DELETE menu item icon []. This action removes or deletes the Menu Item from the menu only and does not delete the web page file permanently. You still have access to the removed web page file from the Pages tab.


  1. While a Menu Item is selected/highlighted, move it up or down on the navigation menu, if you wish, by clicking on the up [] or down [] arrows. You can also move items up or down by "grabbing, dragging and dropping" the menu label text with your mouse. You may also choose to make a link a subheading under another link by clicking on the right arrow.


  1. You may want one of your menu items to be a subcategory under another Menu Item. In this case, move the subcategory Menu Item so that it is the first item beneath the Menu Item for which it will be a subcategory. Once you have moved it into position, click on the Move menu item RIGHT button []. If you no longer want an item as a subcategory, click on the Move menu item LEFT button [].


  1. Menu sub categories can be collapsed so only the category label remains. To do this, click on the Site tab at the left and then the Menu icon.



    The "Customize your menu" form appears. Make sure the check mark is taken out of the box labeled "All items are expanded, when site first viewed."



  2. You can change the menu width to anything between 150 pixels, minimum, to 300 pixels maximum width.

  3. You can choose between a horizontal men and a vertical menu. Place the dot next to the choice you prefer.

  4. You can add a label on the navigation menu that has no page associated with it to help organize your menu. While on the Menu tab, click on the "Add a new section header" icon []. You will then see "Section Header" in yellow on your menu []. Click on it once to select it []. Click on it another time to prepare it for editing []. Type in your Section Header text.



Note: The Menu Item that is at the very top of the list is your "Home page." The home page is where visitors "land" or arrive when they type in your website address into a browser's address box...i.e., www.yourwebsite.com.




Over-Crowded Navigation Menu


Sometimes you create too many web pages to comfortably place them all individually on the navigation menu. This is particularly true if you have many reports from your golf software such as results for your weekly league events. When this becomes an issue, you can resolve it by creating an index of links on a web page. See Creating an Index Page Using the List Page and Creating an Index Page Using a Blank Page Template.
