Page Navigation Capabilities
The most basic use of this plugin allows the user to change the order in which pages are displayed. This is done by dragging and dropping pages to their desired location. Placing a page on-top of another page will make the first page a child of the second and placing it between pages will change their order.
When hovering over a page, the options link will appear on the right side of the box. This panel contains three options for editing the selected page.
Edit: Directs the user to the ‘Edit Page’ url.
View: Directs the user to the live page.
Move to Trash: Moves the selected page to the trash bin with the option of restoring the page at a later date. If the menu item is a link, it will be deleted forever.
Links – Adding/Editing
To add a link to the navigation menu, simply click the ‘Add a Link’ url at the top of the ‘Page Order’ page. A menu will appear which allows the user to enter the desired url information. Once added, the link acts like a page in terms of moving within the site structure as well as it the availability of the options panel.
Badges give the user a quick look into the status of individual pages and links. If no badge is present, the page or link is live and visible.
New: The page has been added to the navigation but has not yet been published.
Draft: Indicates the page is a draft and won’t appear in the navigation.
Pending: Indicates the page is pending and won’t appear in the navigation.
Not in Navigation: Indicates the page won’t appear in the navigation with the others. This option can be toggled on a page by page basis using Individual Page Settings
Restricted: Indicates the page is restricted through the ACL plugin.
Protected: Indicates the page is password protected.
Allowing Top Level Pages
To enable/disable the addition of top level pages to the site navigation, users must check the Allow Top-Level Pages option on the Primary Navigation tab under Site Design. If unchecked, no new top-level pages will be able to be created.
