About

Navigation bars allows you to customize navigation on your web site. There are 4 types of navigation bars:

Navigating to Navigation Bar

To find each navigation bar/menu management option, click the Settings tab on main navigation bar and click the Navigation Menu - Responsive item, as you can see on the following image:

Primary Navigation Bar

Primary navigation bar is located in the upper part of web site, below the logo of the service. It is the navigation bar with the main categories present on the website. If you have more items than could be displayed on your device, a More icon will contain additional menu items.

Primary Navigation is a so-called "sticky" navigation, which means, that when the viewer scrolls down the page out of the view of the navigation, Primary Navigation Bar attaches itself to the top of the browser window and scrolls along with the page.

In order to set up the Primary Navigation, go to the Settings tab, select Navigation Menu - Responsive and from there pick the Primary Navigation option.

You will open the following page:

There you can create New Menu Items and/or edit or delete existing ones. You can adjust the order in which the items on the menu appear.

(The live view of the website with the menu below the table of menu items is cached, which means that you will not see immediate changes to the website as you make them.)

New Menu item

If you edit or create a New Menu item, you have the following options:
1) Set Link settings - the menu item can link to a zone, a section, or a special page within the website. It's also possible to set the item to link to a URL that you input manually or that is there as a title only. (In case of a manual link, you can also set whether clicking on it should open this URL in a new tab or in the same window.)
2) Specify "Link Text" - here you can specify what the new menu item will say on the frontend of the page (e.g. "Home", "Sport", etc.).
3) 1st Column Submenu - create a drop-down menu for any of the items in the Primary menu.
4) Hide Item - option to have the item appear in the list of Primary Navigation Menu items in cms, but hide it from appearing on the frontend of the website.

Config Tools Online

In the footer, you will automatically have "Follow-us" buttons. The Follow buttons, shown above, allows users to follow your social media account (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Vkontakte, etc.) directly from your homepage or any website where the button is installed. When users click this button, the following occurs:

  • For logged in users, a small pop-up screen displays with more information about your account when they click the button.
  • User who isn't logged in to Twitter will see a similar pop-up screen that allows them to view your account's following/follower information, sign in, and then follow you.

The social buttons that are offered can have a value that is localised (tied to your specific social media account) or global (left to redirect to the homepage of the social media in question).

Changing the order of Social Media buttons

After saving the desired changes, it is necessary to reload site and CMS (upper left corner of the Config Tool Online page).

Setting a local value for your social media button

To set a specific localised value of a given social media button you need to go to Administration and select Config Tools Online. (same as with Responsive.FollowUs Config key).

In the column Configuration local value in the new dialog window you can add, edit, or remove the specific URL to your specific social media account. After saving the desired changes, it is necessary to reload site and CMS (upper left corner of the Config Tool Online page).
