Here’s a little pre-weekend prezzie for all site managers! We just rolled out a small back-end menu update that should make site maintenance a little easier for you: you now have the ability to switch your main navigation from horizontal to vertical and vice versa.
In the past, site managers who have wished to change their menu formatting had to send a request to the Service Desk. Applying the change is now as simple as ticking a checkbox in your site admin.
To change your main menu:
- Sign into your site admin
- Go to Configuration > Site Settings
- Select or deselect the Horizontal Navigation checkbox under General settings
- Click the Save configuration button at the bottom of the page
The horizontal menu is now the default menu for newly created sites. No more having to send an additional request to have your horizontal menu activated when creating new sites!
When formatting your menus, please keep in mind that horizontal menus have less space for top-level parent items. The number and length of parent items should be carefully considered to ensure all menu items will be visible in the menu bar.
