Edit, Delete, and Reorder Menus

How to Edit Existing Menu Links:

  1. Mouse-over Structure (i.e., top menu) then Menus -> click on your department menu. Note: this displays your department menu (i.e., top navigation) with sub-pages indented.
  2. To edit a link, just click on the ‘edit’ operation link next to the menu link you wish to change.
    1. Menu link title: adjust title as needed
    2. Path: in order to link to another/new page either the node/number or URL of page must be entered (i.e., in order to obtain node -> click on page title from your Workbench area -> then click on New Draft (tab) -> copy node/number (i.e., node/17067).
    3. Description: this area is option.
    4. Enabled: default (i.e., to display as menu link – uncheck if you wish to hide page from displaying in menu)
    5. Show as expanded: check if menu page will have sub-pages (Note: its advisable to not expand menu below two sub-page levels).
    6. Open this link in new menu: check if you prefer web page to open in a separate browser window (i.e., Note: if using an external link to your site, this option is already programmed in).
    7. Parent link: location or heading that web page will appear under (i.e. Note: main department menu displays first in list – use wisely as to not allow menu to display on two lines).
    8. Weight: lower number (i.e., including negatives) display higher in menu. Note: alternative is to drag and drop menu item to position (i.e., see How to Reorder Existing Menu Links #2 below).
    9. Click Save button when done.
