The ‘Navigation’ tab

Most pages will include the “Navigation” tab:

Navigation tab properties and settings

The tab includes the following properties (settings)* that affect how the page behaves and how it is displayed in the navigation bars:

* Note: Not all pages will contain the five properties displayed above. Depending on the type of page or template, some of these properties will not be displayed.

Related Links

‘Related links’ connect pages that have related (similar) content, prompting the end user to view more information.

As seen in the visual below, the Related links panel is displayed in the right-hand tool bar and contains links to other internal pages.

Hide from Navigation

Toggling “ON” the “Hide from Navigation” property will hide the page link from both the top navigation and the left hand side sub navigation.

However, note that the page is still accessible via a direct link or other hyperlinks throughout page content.

Display in footer navigation

Toggling “ON” the “Display in footer navigation” property displays the page link/title in the site’s footer.

Note that it’s best to keep the footer nav uncluttered, as it is usually reserved for specific pages, e.g. Sitemap, Privacy statement, Admin and Reporting links. It shouldn’t be used for general guideline pages.

Open in new Window

Toggling “ON” the “Open in new Window” property opens the page in a new window, when it is clicked.

Note that it’s usually best practice to open external pages (e.g. pages on an external site) in a new window rather than refreshing to a new page within the same window.

Include in Previous/Next Navigation

Guideline pages can have Previous and Next buttons included at the base of each page as shown below:

Previous and next buttons examples

The buttons allow users to navigate page and section content in a linear manner.

Note that, by default, this setting is turned off for all pages (e.g. the toggle is in the “OFF” position):

Include in previous and next navigation button off

To include a page in the “Previous/Next Navigation” sequence (e.g. to reveal the Previous/Next buttons), each page must be toggled on individually. This will need to be done to all pages that you want to include in the sequence:

Include in previous and next navigation button on

Warning: At least three pages in the “Content” section, including the Home page, must be turned on for the buttons to operate (and to be effective). However, unless you intend to reveal the buttons on all guideline content pages, it is best to turn the setting off. We believe you either include all pages in the sequence or don’t use it at all.
