The Navigation Menu is the building blocks for moving around your website. Set names, manage the order, and organize them into groups for ease-of-use navigation around your website.
To access the Navigation Menu, log into your iHOUSEweb admin menu, and click Edit Website, then click Navigation.
Ordering & Grouping Navigation Links
To change the order of a navigation menu link, simply click the link and drag it up or down to the desired location, and drop it. If you drop it directly under another link, it will become a sublink in that group. If you want a link to become its own group, drop it in the space between existing groups. Sublinks will display underneath their parent links in your website’s navigation.
- Several templates use horizontal navigation across the top. On the homepage only the parent links (in bold) will show. After you have mosed over a group, the other links in that group will display underneath.
- For these templates we recommend using 6 or less link groups. Adding more than that may cause the links to wrap to a second line. If you want to add several navigation groups and links, or want all of your navigation links to always show, you should choose a template with navigation down the side.
- As a general rule, keep your navigation as easy to understand as possible.
Editing & Deleting Navigation Links
Clicking the green rename link will allow you to rename the link. Any changes made here will immediately appear on your website. To edit the actual content of the page (including URLs of link out items that link to external websites), you must use the Pages tab in the Edit Mode bar. If you want to change the page a link points to, instead delete the link and make a new link to the desired page using the Add a navigation link form at the bottom of the page.
To delete a link, click the delete icon  for that link.
Note: Deleting a navigation link will only delete the link, it will not delete the corresponding page.
Adding New Navigation Links
New links must either be a Link out or point to a PUBLISHED page on your website. You can not add a link to an unpublished page.
To add a link, use the Add a navigation link section at the bottom of the page. If you have any published pages that don’t yet have navigation links, they will be shown in a select box. Select the page you want from the menu. Edit the name of the link, if desired, then click Add this link. The new page will now appear in your navigation menu. Alternatively, to create a new link out page, click add a new link out page.
Navigation widgets allow you to create your own separate, customized navigation menus. Note that when you create a navigation widget, you can add parent nav links, but you can't add child links to these.
