Why? Menus are managed separately from site navigation. As you add pages to your website, you will need to add links to your menus.

Log in to your Community Center web site using a Site Manager account.

When linking to Community Center pages in a menu, you will only need to know each page's file name. You can get this by one of the following methods:

  • Navigate to the destination page for the new menu item.  In the Location box of your browser, highlight only the file name (it will look like "name.asp" after the last slash). Then right-click the highlighted area and select Copy.
  • Right click any link in a Links Group, then select Copy Shortcut or Copy Link Location. When you paste the link into the menu Link Text box, remove everything but the file name.

Use complete URLs if the link is not on your website.

Then, follow this procedure:

  1. Click My Profile.  The Login window appears.
  2. Scroll down to the Site Manager Component Tools section, then click Menu Editor.  The Menu Editor window appears.
  3. Click the name of the menu you want to edit.  The Menu Settings window appears.
  4. Click Add New Menu Item in the left column or at the bottom of the page.  A new row appears in the Menu Items list.
  5. In the Display Text box, type the text the user will see on the menu (replace the words "new item").  In the Link Text box, paste the page address you copied in step 1 (press Ctrl-V on the keyboard).  Modify the Order number for your new item if necessary.  When done, click the Submit button at the bottom of the page.  The Menu Settings window re-appears.

    NOTE: To add a sub-menu, please see Add a Sub-Menu to a Dropdown Menu.
  6. Click Close This Window.
