Under Menu Settings, check “Provide a menu link.” More options will then appear.
The menu link title is how the page will display in the navigation. It is by default set to the title of the page when the page was created. This is changeable, but make sure the menu link title is either the same as the title of the page or something similar enough so users know where the menu item will lead.
It is not necessary to fill the description item.
The parent item is navigation item one level above this page in the page hierarchy. Always select the parent item from the pulldown menu. It is organized in hierarchical fashion. Each lower level is indented, with the highest level being the main menu, the second level being the six main sections of the main navigation (About, Academics, Admissions, Administration, Student Services, and News/Events), and lower levels branching off into different departments.
It is important that you select the correct parent item, or you may be unable to locate your page.
» Never leave this field as the default value.
Weight controls what order this item will appear in the menu. A negative weight will make the item “float” higher up in the menu. A positive number will sink it down. The weight is relative to other items that share the same parent, so, unless you know the weight of those items, it can be difficult to order your menu in this way.
Our site is contained in a database. There is no folder and file structutre to set hierarchy in the site. To provide URLs, also known as links or paths, that reflect where an item is found in the site, we need to set that.
To set a proper URL for a piece of content, go to the section called Domain-specific Paths. Find the correct site in the list (http://barnard.edu for content on the main site) and fill in the rest of the path in the field below that domain.
The path should reflect where the page is in the navigation. For example, let’s say you are creating a page about Financial Information to be included in the Course Catalogue. The Parent Item in the navigation is Course Catalogue (http://barnard.edu/catalogue), making the path catalogue/financial-information, under http://barnard.edu.
