Menus

News Types

Overview

News Types are optional when using News Items. If you choose to create News Types (see instructions on the Categories page), you can either display a single News Type under the "News" menu item, or you can filter by News Types in a widget area on any page (see Types of Widgets).

Limited WYSIWYG Toolbar

In regular Content pages and Text widgets, there is a "regular" (full) editing, a.k.a. WYSIWYG, toolbar. However, there are a few features in Open Berkeley that only allow a limited subset of tags.

Edit Site Information

You can edit the name (title) of your site (the text in the banner region of the page, to the right of the Berkeley workmark), or update the email address used for your site if desired.

From your Site Builder dashboard, click "Edit Site Information" under "Other Administration".

Click "Save configuration" when you are done making your edits.

Manage Main Menu

Overview

You can add and move content to the main menu (primary navigation) when creating or editing content. All menu items in the main menu need a "parent" (top-level) item. For the parent items in the main menu, the main menu itself is the "parent." Additional items are considered "child pages" (sub-pages) of the parent items. Child pages will show up in a local (sidebar) menu from the parent item.

By default, the main menu will display as a simple drop-down:

Add Submenu

Overview

You can feature menus from your site in a widget area by using the "Add Submenu" option. Select "Override Title" to add your own title if desired (otherwise, the title defaults to the chosen menu, and links to the parent item), then select the "Starting level" (1st level, 2nd level, etc.).

Re-Order and Manage Menu Items

FAQ Categories

Categories for FAQs are required. Before you start creating FAQ items, create FAQ categories first (see instructions on the Categories page), so that you can assign the FAQ items to their corresponding FAQ categories.
