How to add a link in the navigation of a page

How to add a link that shows in the navigation of a page

Use these instructions to add a hyperlink that shows up in the navigation on a page. These instructions also cover how to edit and delete links. Adding a link using the instructions below is very different from inserting a link in a page's contents, which you might do much more frequently.

When you add a link using these instructions the link shows up in the navigation of a page, just like a subpage would. However, the link is not a page, but instead redirects to another page somewhere else. You can add a link on any type of page.

Click "Add" on a page's upper right-hand section

  • Step 1: Navigate to the page where you want to add the link and click "Add" in the top right.
  • Step 2: Click the grey page type dropdown to the right of the page title and select the "Link" page type.

  • Step 3: Type the name of the page to which you are linking in the title box.
  • Step 3: Click "Choose link" and then select an intranet link using the instructions on how to insert links.
  • Step 4: Click "Publish" at the top right. The parent page will reload showing the link in the navigation.

Edit or delete a link in the navigation

Follow the instructions below if you need to change the title or address of a link you've added, or to delete the link.
  • Step 1: Navigate to the parent page on which the link shows.
  • Step 2: Next to the link in the navigation click the "Edit" button to open the link editing screen.

  • Change link name: Edit the "Title" field of the link and then click "Save" at the top of the page.
  • Change link address: Click "Edit" next to the current link path or address and change the link, then click "Save" at the top of the page.
  • To delete link: Click the "Delete" button underneath the "Save" button. Then click "OK" in the dialogue box that appears.
Deleting a link from the navigation is different from deleting an actual page. (See complete instructions on how to delete a page.)

Move link to different part of navigation

Follow the instructions below if you need to move a link to a different page or section of the navigation.
  • Step 1: Navigate to the parent page on which the link lives.
  • Step 2: Next to the link in the navigation click the "Edit" button to open the link editing screen.
  • Step 3: Click "Move" beside the link path above the page title.
  • Step 4: Click on any page listed in the pop-up to move your page there.
    • Click the triangle to the left of a page to show or hide its subpages.
  • Step 5: Click "Done" at the bottom of the pop-up. The link path above the page title will show the new location of the link.
  • Step 6: Click "Save" in the top right.

Date options when adding link in blog, forum or news section

When you follow the above instructions to add a link to a blog, forum or news section the link will display just like any other post to that section. On the "Creating a link under" screen you will see three options that do not appear when you add a link to other types of intranet pages.
  • Sticky: Check this box to keep your new link at the top of the section. Edit the link and uncheck the box when the link is no longer as relevant.
  • Publish now: Click this to set the official publish time and date as the moment you click "Save" or "Publish" on the link page.
  • Publish on: Use this to set a future date for the link to publish and show up at the top of the section, or to set a past date for a retroactive post.
