The Main Menu right at the top of your website with the different Menu items is also referred to as the 'header.'

The footer is the section at the bottom of your website, which contains contact information, a list of upcoming or recently completed events, and a section for privacy policy and terms of use.

These panels can be customized from the Edit Main Menu and Footer tool on the admin panel.

NOTE: On the Footer menu, changes to the Events, Contact Us, Privacy Policy & Terms of Use sections can only be edited from the backend.

Aside from the content that goes into cards on the home page automatically, you need to first put it on the navigation menu for your alumni to access any other content you create.

To add a new item to the navigation menu, go to the admin navigation and search for Header and Footer Settings using the Search option, or go to Settings Platform Settings ➡ Header and footer settings

Step 1:

The navigation menu edit page will look like the following window, where you can find different headers with dark blue labels. Under each header, you will be able to add pages, newsletters, events, or a link to an external website, etc.

Choose one of the headers on your navigation menu under which you want to make the changes.

Note: You can add up to 6 header links and 3 footer links; there is no limit to the number of sub-links that can be added.

Click on add sub-link; a popup will appear to enter in the relevant details.

Step 2:

In the field Name, enter the name you want for the sub-link.

Step 3:

In the next field Link, you have two options to direct the sub-link to when clicked on it.
It can be linked to an external URL or to an existing page you created on the platform.

  • To link to an external URL: Enter the URL into the text box.

  • To link to a page: Click on the dropdown menu and select the desired page. This article has more details on adding a page to the navigation menu. 

Step 4:

You can control the visibility of the sub-link on the menu. To do this, click on the dropdown field 'Visibility' and choose from 3 given options.

  • All visitors - Logged in, non logged in, verified, or unverified users.

  • Only verified users - Verified Users

  • Hidden - Hidden from all users (even admins) 

Step 5:

Once you're done, click on Save Changes on the pop-up and the navigation menu; edit the page as shown below.
