Adding and Removing Navigation Links

By default, a horizontal navigation bar with links to site pages is inserted below or above the header of your site. It is automatically updated every time you add, change, move, or remove pages from the site.

If you use sidebars on the site, then the horizontal bar under the header includes only links to the first level pages, and the sidebars show the links of the second and third levels.

You can move navigation blocks by dragging them to other areas of the site.

For each navigation block, you can specify the following settings:

  • Menu alignment, style and size of the font, colors and backgrounds used for the links. You can specify separate settings for normal, active and submenu links. To change any of these settings, place the mouse pointer over a navigation block and click Edit > Fonts and Colors.
  • Padding and margins for the links. You can specify separate settings for normal, active and submenu links. To change these settings, place the mouse pointer over a navigation block and click Edit > Spacing.
  • Shadows for the links. You can specify separate settings for normal, active and submenu links. To change these settings, place the mouse pointer over a navigation block and click Edit > Decorations.
  • What levels of pages should be included in the menu. To change these settings, place the mouse pointer over a navigation block and click Edit > Levels.
  • Borders width and color and corners rounding for the links. You can specify separate settings for normal, active and submenu links. To change these settings, place the mouse pointer over a navigation block and click Edit > Borders and Corners.

If you occasionally remove a navigation block, you can re-insert it. To do this, go to the Modules tab, select Navigation, and drag the block to the area on the page where you want to add it. The navigation block will be inserted into all pages of the website if you select the option Always visible.

For the convenience of your site visitors, you might also want to add breadcrumb navigation blocks. Breadcrumb navigation is a chain of links that represents the user's path from the site's main page to a current page. To add a breadcrumb navigation block, go to the Modules tab, select Breadcrumbs, and drag the module to the area on the page where you want to add it. The navigation block will be inserted into all pages of the website if you select the option Always visible.
