• Menu navigation is a critical element of the IUP website. Here is everything that web maintainers need to know about creating and editing menus.

    Has your site been converted?
    The latest update to the IUP website means that converted menus are automatic—web maintainers no longer need to worry about them. When a new page layout is created in an existing folder, Ektron automatically adds that page to the menu (and creates a user-friendly URL, called an alias, at the same time.)
    If you create a new folder, you must inform the Web Team so they can activate that folder’s menu.

    Note: If an existing page is renamed, the name change will not take effect on the menu until the page is published.

    If your site has NOT yet been converted, then the following information is for you:

  • Create a New Menu
    Create additional menus to navigate to content you have added to your site.
    Edit or Add Items to a Menu
    As you add content or change content on your site, you will need to change the menu as well.
    How the Menu System Works
    Consistent navigation is key so that site visitors are not confused.
    Removing Items from a Menu
    If a page is removed from a folder, it also must be removed from that folder’s menu.
