There are three navigation menus that a site built with our UCR default profile will contain. 

  • Main Navigation - appears horizontally below the site title on all pages of your site

  • Audience Menu - appears on the top right, in the same region as the organizational name and Google custom search

  • Related Links - appears in the footer, in one of the columns, depending on how the site is configured

Where do I find the Menus?

To edit one of these menus, a user must have "Editor" or "Site Builder" rights to the site. Menus can be found under the Structure tab.

Structure -> Menus

Things to know 

  1. Content you create isn't stored in any particular order or location in your site as no hierarchy exists until you create it
  2. Adding content links to a menu is a deliberate, manual step on your part
  3. There are two different ways to add main navigation menu items
    1. Structure -> Menus -> Main Navigation
    2. During page creation, using the "Menu Settings" to the right of your body content. 
  4. Sub-navigation can be achieved by indenting or selecting its parent.
  5. When using the Audience Menu, keep in mind that best practice is to have only one first level navigation item.
