Changing Your Navigation Menu
The navigation menu is used to structure the content of your site and is created using a simple unordered (bulleted) list.
The navigation menu can be updated from a single nav.html file, which makes the maintenance of your navigation simpler and provides more flexibility for adding future pages. This file can be found in your site's includes/ folder by clicking Files > Includes from your site homepage.
The nav.html file contains an unordered list (bulleted list) showing the menu items. Sub-menus are entered as indented list items.
In TMS, the contents of an includes/nav.html file will look like the example below:
- Site home
Using the example above, the navigation that will appear on the home page of the site will display only the top level navigation, showing:
Site Home Staff Research Teaching
If Staff is selected from this list, the navigation will then display the staff sub-menus, as follows:
Site Home Staff Academic Staff Admin & Support Staff Research Teaching
Similarly, selecting Research from the navigation and then Publications from the sub-menu list will look as follows:
Site Home Staff Research Publications Current Publications Archived Publications Seminars Teaching
Adding New Menu Items
Inserting a new section on the navigation menu is as simple as typing in the text on a bulleted list, much as you do in Microsoft Word.
This new text will now need to link to a new page that will hold the relevant content. To create a new page, please read the creating new pages section of the Web Guide.
