Navigation of your personalised tournament & league website
In the Navigation section you can customize the main menu of your website. Arrange your pages in hierarchies, create drop-down menus, and decide the order of the entries within the menu.
The menu will be visible at the top of your website, to the right of your logo.
To create a new menu entry, click Add and then enter:
- Title - Type the name that will be displayed in the menu.
- Slug - A slug is the url structure that will appear after your domain name on every page of your website. It identifies a particular page on your website in an easy to read form and explains the page’s content. The slug must be unique and as short as possible, using 6 words maximum and removing articles, prepositions, conjunctions, etc. At the same time, the slug must be descriptive, integrating the main keywords of the web the page’s content. It is important to use lowercase letters, separate words by central hyphens (-) and avoid using accents and other special characters such as the letter ñ. For example, for the web page of an event Summer tournament you can use the slug summer-tournament or for the event Soccer camp use the slug soccer-camp.
- Position - Determines the order of entries in the main menu and drop-down menus. For main menu entries, use whole numbers, starting with the number 1 for the first etc. For submenu entries, use numbers separated by periods. The first digit number will refer to a main menu entry, the second digit number will indicate a second level submenu entry, and so on accordingly.
- Parent - Choose whether you want to create a main menu entry or a drop-down submenu from another main menu entry.
- Category - Assign one of the following categories: menu, link, page, document, depending on the purpose of the page. We'll go into more detail on how these categories work below.
Categories of the new menu:
The Menu creates a drop-down entry, where you can add other submenus. When your website visitor clicks on the Menu, further submenus will be shown without redirecting the visitor to another web page. Once the visitor clicks on a submenu with Page, Link or Document category, he will be redirected to the respective web page.
There are no limitations on how many levels you can use for nesting pages. For example, you could create a Tournaments menu that includes Easter and Summer submenus. At the same time, each of these submenus could contain further submenus, breaking the events to seasons, eg. 2020 and 2021. The navigation menu would have the following structure:
Position: 1 (first position in the main menu)
Parent: Main Menu
Position: 1.1 (first position in the second level submenu)
Position: 1.2 (second position in the second level submenu)
Slug: easter-2020 (slug must always be unique)
Position: 1.1.1 (first position in the third level submenu)
Position: 1.1.2 (second position in the third level submenu)
Position: 1.2.1 (first position in the third level submenu)
Position: 1.2.2 (second position in the third level submenu)
With this navigation, if the website visitor clicks on Tournament, Easter or Summer (entries with Page category), he will be displayed the associated submenus. When clicking on 2020 or 2021 (entries with Page category), the visitor will be redirected to the contents of these pages.
If you choose the Link category for your new menu entry, you will need to fill in the Link field with the URL you want this menu entry to redirect to. You can use this category to redirect visitors to other websites such as a Google signup form, a survey etc.
With the Page category you will create a new menu entry, that will be associated to a content previously published in the Pages tab of your website's administration panel.
With the Document category you will create a new menu entry, that will be associated to a content previously published in the Documents tab of your website's administration panel.
