Now you have created your first page. In this section we will describe how you navigate to your pages on the public site. The system has three predefined menu positions Top, Main and Bottom.

Public site menu positions.

The top and the main menus have multilevel menu trees. The lower levels are displayed in the left side bar, as drop-downs or both. The bottom menu is a single level menu only. If there are more levels attached to the bottom menu, they will not be displayed.

If you have published the page it is already accessible from the URL. To improve and provide better navigation to your website, we will show you how you can attach a page to the menu.

When creating or editing your page you will notice a quick Menu access tab. This tab allows you to quickly attach to the menu whilst editing or creating the page content. If you do not plan to attach your page to the menu you are able to do this later from the Menu functionality feature in the Manage toolbox.
