Navigation is a necessary component of every website. It provides visitors with consistent access to the content sections of your site.

The responsive templates offer up to three levels of navigation, based on the file structure within your site. There are two display options available for displaying site navigation (see screencaptures below).  

  1. Horizontal (level one) + left (levels two and three)
  2. Left only - all three levels

In the page properties of the homepage template, click on the Navigation tab and select one of the following choices:

  • Horizontal and left - Level 1 is displayed as horizontal; Levels 2 & 3 are set as left vertical navigation, or
  • Left - All three levels of navigation are located in the left sidebar

    • in open page go to Sidekick > Page tab (second tab) > Page Properties
  • Click checkbox for “Show in Navigation”
  • Click OK
  • Reload page to view in navigation
  • Ensure that the left section of your page is "visible" in order to see left navigation.

The text in the Title field (when you created your file) is the default navigation label displayed in navigation. If you want to modify this label without modifying your "Title" (which is also your Page Title and page H1), you can create a shorter navigation label by doing the following:

  • Open page properties of the file
  • Go to Navigation Field> add new text
  • Close page properties and reactivate page

To change the order of the navigation:

  1. Go to the site admin
  2. On the left, drag and drop the files in the order you want them to appear

  3. Activate the files that have been moved
