Adding a Section Folder

The following does not apply to Proflies, News, Event Calendar or Image Gallery

Section Folders are used to group content. See Information architecture & navigation

  • Create a Primary (Global) Navigation item - items that appear in the black horizontal bar
  • Create a Sub-section - can appear as a dropdown item, and/or in the right column
  • Editing - the text in the Display Name field is what's displayed in the navigation
  • Publishing -
    • New - if the Section Folder is not currently published (i.e., not currently on your website) you'll need to publish the parent folder and the site map.
    • Edit - if the Section Folder is already on your website you'll just need to publish the folder
    • If you've added a page to the section, you'll need to publish the folder and the site map
