Edit your menu

  • Mouseover the menu region
  • Click on the gear on the righthand side > Edit menu
  • Click on the POWER EDIT tab
  • You can add menu items at the bottom of the menu. If the menu item links to a page created on the same subsite, you must use node/number in the path block. If the menu item links to another subsite or any page not created on your subdomain, you should insert the whole URL in the path block.
    Menu items can be moved by dragging the cross up or down.
    Submenu items are created by dragging the cross on the left of a menu underneath the parent item. The parent item also needs to be ticked in the EXP. block. This creates the down arrow and a seperator line between menu items.
  • Save Configuration when you are done editing your menu. When you have saved, the menu links will be live and you can navigate from the links in the menu editor.
