Managing the Menu

The CMS provides an easy drag-and-drop interface for moving and nesting menu items. New content is added to the menu when it's created. See Adding a Page for more information.

Do*not* add links that take the visitor outside of your site.

Accessing the Menu

After logging in, hover over the menu with your mouse and you'll notice a gear icon in the top right corner. Click that, and select the "List links" option.

Because the menu is very large for, we need to filter down to the section we want to see:

  1. Select the section the site is under in the navigation;
    Department sites can select "All" to see everything
  2. Set the depth to 4 if dealing with top-level items on, set depth to the highest number if you want to see everything
  3.  Click filter
  4.  Use Ctrl-F (or Cmd-F) to find the menu section you need. For example, typing in "Communications" will jump me to the Communications section of the menu.

In this interface, you are able to
- re-order links
- nest links under parent links
- edit the text
- disable the link so that it doesn't show in the menu
- delete
  only deletes the link from the menu; instead, go to page and delete or unpublish it

Things to keep in mind:

If you've changed the text here, that does not change the URL of the associated page. For example, if the link Faculty is changed to Faculty and Staff, the link of the page is still If it should match, go to the page and make a new draft, scroll to the bottom and select 'Domain-specific paths', find and change faculty to faculty-staff - do not use capitals or spaces.

If you've moved a link to be under another item, edit that page's Domain-specific path to reflect that move. For example, East-Asian Track used to be a main link, change the path from east-asian-track to major-requirements/east-asian-track.
