  • What are the steps to create a new navigation link?

First, you need to identify in which Menu group you would like to add your navigation link.

This information will be needed later on when you are filling the fields from the "Edit Navigation Link" page. Once identified you can follow the steps below. 


  1. Click on the green button from the top right corner that says "Add Link"  
  2. The next page that will appear will say "Edit Navigation Link". Here is where we will add the details for this link. The fields with a red * are mandatory. 

    3. Fill in the fields: 
    1. Name: This is the name of the link that will appear on the website. For example, if you are making a link for a "Contact Us" page you could name your link "Contact" if the Link is for a FAQ page, you could name it FAQ, and so on. 
    2. Link Title: It is what will show up when you hover your mouse over the navigation link. This field is optional. 
    3. Menu Group:  The names on the dropdown will vary depending on your website, so it is important to have the Menu Group where you'd like your link added to already identified before reaching this step. 
    4. Link Target: This field will determine whether or not the link will open in a new tab when it is clicked. You have the options:  _self & blank.
        • Self: Is the normal behavior
        • blank: Will force the link to open in a new browser tab. 

e. Type: This will be the type of link you want to create. You several options to choose from such as URL, WSM Module, Page, or Category.
f. URL: Since you are linking to another page that is still on the site,  you will only Copy the relative URL. In other words, the only part of the URL that you will need is anything that is  AFTER the .com
