Menus contribute significantly to the structure of a website and enable users to quickly access related content or other areas of interest to the user. WoltLab Suite provides a powerful tool for creating and maintaining menus.
The software provides a total of three default menus in the standard installation:
|Main Menu||The main menu provides the primary navigation and is displayed by default in the header of each page.|
|Footer Links||The menu Footer Links is displayed in the footer area of each page like the footer menu and is suitable for displaying complex link structures with multiple levels.|
Create Menus Items#
To create a new menu item, first select in the admin panel under Contents → CMS → Menus the menu in which you want to add a menu item. Then click on the button Menu Items and then on Add Menu Item.
The following input fields are available when creating a menu item:
|Parent Menu Item||Optionally select a parent menu item.|
|Name||Enter a name for the menu item.|
|Display Order||Defines the order if more than one menu item is displayed at the desired position.|
|Disable menu item||Temporarily deactivates the menu item.|
|Link||Select whether the menu item should contain an internal or external link.|
|Seite||For internal links: Select the page to be linked.|
|External URL||For external links: Enter a URL to which you want to link.|
You can create a new menu by clicking the Add Menu button in the admin panel under Contents → CMS → Menus.
Menus use the boxes system in the background to display the menu, so the settings are essentially identical to those of the box system.
