Menu Cards are best suited for mini-navigation for a sub-section of a website or a bank of related links to external resources. As part of the Sites+ platform, the CALS/LAS web team will place the Menu Card and then a Content Editor will be able to edit it.
Editing a Menu Card
Locate the Menu Card you wish to edit. If the Menu Card is on a homepage or landing page, click the Edit tab to access the Homepage Editor.
Click the pencil icon in the upper left corner of the Menu Card. (The pencil icon appears when you hover over the card with a mouse, or if you use the keyboard to tab to it.) Then click Edit or Configure.
Parts of the Menu Card
Note: The interface to edit a Menu Card looks different if the Menu Card is part of a homepage or landing page, but the principles are the same.
Here are the different fields of the Menu Card edit screen and how to use them.
This is the title of the menu. In the Homepage Editor, this field is called title.
Each link consists of the Link Text and the URL. The Link Text will be displayed to visitors and is what they'll click on. The URL can be four things:
- Full URL to an external page. Example:
- Internal link to a page that already exists on your site. Just begin typing the name of the page and the field will autocomplete.
- You can link to the homepage with
- You can leave the URL blank with
<nolink>but this is not recommended.
Links can be re-ordered by using a mouse to clicking and holding the move icon and dragging the link to a new position, or by using keyboard arrow keys.
To remove a link, move it to the last position, then delete the content from the Link Text and URL.
The two choices are vertical and horizontal. The vertical orientation puts the links in a single column. The horizontal orientation arranges them as tabs. We do not recommend changing this option without consulting the CALS/LAS web team.
