The video and article will show you how to customize the layout of your Placester site's navigation menu.
Regardless of the menu layout that you chose in the site setup wizard, you can always add or remove pages within your menu, adjust the order of menu items and add drop down menus.
Please note that any pages you'd like to add to your menu must first be created on the back end of your site. They must also be in the Published status (not in Draft mode). Find out more about creating pages here.
Site Settings > Menu
Adding a Menu Item
To add a page to your menu:
1. Select the page you'd like to add to the menu from the drop down underneath the current menu items
2. Click Add
3. Click Save
Let's say you want to add your Contact page to your menu. Follow the steps below:
Changing the Order of Menu Items
To change the order of your menu items, drag and drop each item in the spot you want it in.
What is a Tooltip?
The tooltip is the text that will appear when you hover over a menu item. By default, it will be set to the menu label, but there might be cases where you want to adjust the tooltip text.
For example, you could set the tooltip for Listings Search to show "Find your new home." Here is what this would look like on the front end of your site when Listings Search is hovered over:
Creating a Drop Down Menu
To create a drop down menu, click and drag the submenu item towards the main menu item. Drop the submenu item within the main menu item so that it becomes indented.
For example, this is how to make the Agents page appear as a drop down underneath About.
Now, Agents appear as a drop down underneath About on the front end.
Using the Custom URL Menu Option
There is also an option to link to a custom URL from your menu. Learn more about that in this support article.
