This feature allows users to add a menu to a page. On the edit screen for any given page you will see a menu on the right entitled 'In-Page Menus'. Simply choose which menu you would like to have displayed and choose a style (Tabs on top of the page or List on the right). In page menus do not support nested menu items; they are only one level deep. Note that you can also have a menu displayed on the side of the page by adding a sidebar to it and configuring the sidebar to display the specific menu.
Cornerstone-based sites have options for different navigation styles. These options are:
- Multi-level Dropdown
These menu options are only applicable if you are using one of the following themes:
- Hale 2015
Changing Your Navigation Style
On the dashboard go to Appearance > Customize. On the left, there will be an option for Navigation Options. Within that space, you will see a dropdown menu with the options listed.
If you do not see this option, you either are not using a supported theme or you have enabled the Max Mega Menu plugin. You will need to disable MaxMegaMenu before other options are available because that plugin overrides all other options.
This option begins with a simple dropdown for the first to level of navigation, with additional pages being displayed in a left navigation bar. This was the default navigation for all Sherman sites from Summer 2014 – Aug 2015.
This option expands the dropdown menu, and removes the left navigation. Dropdowns will expand to the side forever. We recommend not using this option for navigation that has more than 3 levels of depth, as it can be difficult for users to navigate the options. Large sites should consider using the Tabbed option.
In this option, the first two levels of the navigation are exposed in horizontal bars and all other levels are available through dropdown menus.
When set to be On, the top navigation will always sticks to the top of the screen as visitors scroll down pages.
Breadcrumbs are based off of Parent/Child page heirarchy. When set to be On, breadcrumbs navigation will show up on child(ren) pages. For more information view our breadcrumb guide.
