The Website Menu is a crucial element to any website structure. The right menu facilitates user navigation between different sections or pages of your website. Poorly constructed menus can leave your visitors stranded and disoriented, struggling to find the page or information they seek.
WebManager provides you with an intuitive Website Menu tool to help you effectively create and manage your website pages. Ultimately, well-designed menus lead to a seamless navigation, delightful user experiences, increased traffic, and enhanced conversions.
This article will be broken up into the following sections:
How to Find Menu Settings
First click the Settings cogwheel located at the bottom of the leftmost sidebar. Under the Website category, select Menu.
The Website Menu Settings page will appear on your screen. You have total control over how your menu looks and functions. Below are a few features that impact your website menu's display, navigation, and feel.
The Menu Bar section lets you determine your website's layout and how your menu headings are displayed.
The Layout section allows you to select either Centered or Wide. Centered will have the menu elements closer to the center whereas Wide will push them out to the edges of the screen.
The Headings section allows you to determine the justification of your menu headings. Left-aligned aligns the menus to the left, Centered aligns them to the center, and Right-aligned aligns them to the right.
Checking the Positioning checkbox will keep your menu section anchored to the top when scrolling down your pages. Unchecking this checkbox will allow you to scroll down your pages without the menu at the top.
With Menu Logo, you can easily add your own logo to your website. If you want transparency in your logo your image must be .PNG format to support transparency and alpha blending. If there is no need for transparency it can be in .PNG or .JPG format.
Checking the Show Home menu button with Logo checkbox will show the Home button in addition to the custom logo.
Once a logo has been added it will display in your menu. To remove the logo click the Delete Image button.
You can rearrange the order the menu headings are displayed in. You can do this by dragging the headings to a new position. Once you are satisfied with the new arrangement, you can check the box next to a heading to enable the new order or uncheck it to disable it.
Menu headings will only appear on the website if the a) have pages under that menu or b) have an External URL entered.
Menu Label lets you override menu headings by adding a specific label for it. For instance, to display Vehicles instead of Inventory, you can create a specific label for Vehicles.
External URL allows you to change the target page of a menu heading. Instead of taking you to an internal WebManager page, clicking on the heading instead takes you to a specific URL.
The Target column dictates whether clicking on that menu will open in your same browser tab or a new browser tab. Note that this setting only applies to menus that have an External URL.
