  • Use the cross preceding each link to drag (left click and hold the button down) and drop a menu item to a new position
  • In the Enabled column, un-check an item to remove it from the website menu display without actually deleting the content or the menu item
  • Use the Edit link to update the menu item properties

Menu Properties

  • Menu link title box to change the menu title
  • Path - Do NOT make any changes to this system generated value
  • Description box to change the menu item's help text
  • Enabled check box to enable (checked) or disabled (unchecked) the menu item
  • Show as expanded check box to have any children to automatically display as expanded (checked), if unchecked the parent item must first be selected to see the child menu items
  • Parent link may be used to change where the current item is displayed in the menu. However, it's much easier to use the drag and drop method described above in "Use the cross"
  • Weight also controls positioning menu item position within the current tree segment. The more negative the number the higher in the tree segment the item will be positioned. Conversely, the larger the positive number the lower in the tree segment the item will be positioned
  • Select/click the Save button at the bottom of the display to save any changes
