Some sites on the Spanglefish 3 system only have a single page and therefore won't have a Navigation Menu for visitors to use.
But for most sites you'll have a number of pages, and the menu is the main way for your visitors to get around.
Or it can be more complex, with dropdowns containing 'child pages' and flyouts containing 'grandchild pages'.
If a button on the menu has subpages, then a downward or right pointing triangle is automatically added beside it.
If a button on the menu has [square brackets] around it, then that can only be seen and accessed by someone who is logged in as an Administrator or Member.
Managing your Menu
There are two aspects to managing your main menu.
Controlling what appears on it.
Any page which is set as Visible will appear somewhere on your menu. Pages which are set as Protected will also appear on the menu, but only to people (Admins or Members) who are logged into the system.
To change a page's visibility, either click the Page Settings button when on that page or go to Dashboard>Site Settings>Manage Pages>Page Settings.
Controlling the order and position of pages on the menu.
In Dashboard>Site Settings>Manage Pages>Manage Menu you can drag pages into the order you want, with up to 3 different levels. Click Update at the bottom when you're finished.
The Essentials Menu
Firstly, the Sitemap will always show on it. To get other pages to show go to Dashboard > Site Settings > Advanced Settings. Here you'll see that you can select pages you've already created as each of:
- Terms & Conditions
- Accessibility Statement
