This tutorial will show you how to edit and add website menus in member portal.

After new website is generated, go to Website on the left side and then click on Menu.

website menus

All available website menus will be listed on the right. Depending on what template your website is using, usually there are three types of menus already generated on your website – top menu, main menu, and footer menu.

menu tabs

Click on any of the three menu tabs to check all default menu items.

Edit Menu Item

In this example, you will find six menu items under Main Menu.

main menu

Different menu types are listed on the right side of each menu item – custom link, page, and category.

As an example here, say we want to edit Blog menu item. So click on that menu name (highlighted in green colour), and then that menu detail will be displayed as this:

edit blog

As you can see, this Blog menu is linked to Blog category.

  • If you want to use different name for Blog category menu, check Use Custom Tile checkbox.
  • And don’t forget to put your preferred name in Custom Title for all available languages (click English tab and other language(s) tab to fill out name accordingly) if your website has multi languages.
  • If you want that every time people click on that menu to open up a new window, check Open New Window checkbox.
  • If you want to move that menu under other existing menu as sub menu, check its Parent Menu in the dropdown list.
  • Do remember to click Save button to save all your changes. Or click Delete button to simply delete this menu item.

Of course, you can change that menu item linking to a different page, category, or custom link. I will explain in next section:

Add New Menu Item

When you are at Website > Menu section,  select from three menus: top menu, main menu, and footer menu.
