Modifying Site Navigation

Want to change the order in which your navigation items appear? Want to remove or add a menu item? No worries, this is all possible within Virteom CMS.

Rearranging menu items in virteom cms

To start rearranging the order, your menu-items appear login to the back-end of your website. 

  1. Login to the back-end of your website by visiting (yourdomain.com)/virteom
  2. Enter Email
  3. Enter Password
  4. Click 'Login'

Log-in

Once you log in, click on 'Site Pages' or 'Navigation' from the menu.

Navi

Once you arrive at your Navigation, you'll notice the pages of your website have a distinct hierarchy. The pages on your site show in a "tree" layout - meaning the topmost item is the main menu item, and the pages that appear below it (indented) are "children" of the menu items. This, in turn, is used to determine how the navigation on your website will appear. For example, if you have a menu on your website that looks like this:

Website menu showing order of drop-down pages

the corresponding navigation in Virteom would look like this:

Virteom Navigation screen showing order of drop-down pages

In this example, "Services" is a "parent" menu item of several "child" pages – "Cross Contamination Program", "Carpet Cleaning", "Floor Cleaning", "Window Cleaning", "Day Matron Service", "Construction Cleanup", "Green Cleaning" and "Wholesale Supplies." "Cross Contamination Program" appears first in the drop-down menu because it's the first child page in the list.

If you want to re-arrange the order of the pages in your dropdown menu, or navigation menu, just click-and-drag the three line icon () in the Virteom Navigation window to the desired section. 

Once you move the navigation item to the desired location hit 'Save' in the top right-hand corner, don't forget to click 'Save' or the order will not change.

Hide Pages from Your Navigation

This tool allows you to move pages around as they appear in your navigation, and even hide pages you no longer want to appear in your main navigation.

Every Virteom Powered website comes equipped with a Hidden menu item. This menu is meant to illustrate pages that are not included in your main menu. 

If you want to hide the page -- simply drag it to the menu section entitled 'Hidden' and then click 'Save.'

Remember to click the "Save Order" button, or when you navigate away from the Navigation screen, your changes will be lost!
