Adding Left Hand Navigation

To add left hand navigation to a page, follow these steps:

  1. Click the “Login” user menu link and log in as the Admin User.
  2. Click on the dropdown arrow with gear icon while hovering over the main menu bar.
  3. Click on the “Edit menu” option to edit a property of the menu like the title or description, or click on “List links” to edit the menu links.
  4. Optionally navigate to the desired menu by clicking “Structure”, and then “Menus”. Locate the menu by it’s name, which may or may not be obvious.
  5. On the “List links” tab, click “Add link” to create a new menu item, or click the “edit” button next to an existing item, to update a property, like it’s path or title.
  6. To order the menu items, either drag and drop the item into the desired position, or use the “Show row heights” feature for very large menus where it’s no longer possible to visually drag and drop into position.
    1. Note that the column “WEIGHT” is an integer. Set it to a number that reflects the position the item should appear in.
    2. Finally click on “Save configuration” to store your changes.

    3. Click on “Add link” to add the first menu item.
  11. The newly created menu will be available as a block, that can be included in any region.
