Add link in navigation

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

  1. Navigate to the page where you want to add the link and click the Add button (plus icon) in the page header.
  2. Click on the Content type dropdown on the right and select the Link content type. (The Template Link will automatically be selected.)

  3. Type what you want the link text to be in the title box.
  4. Click the Link setup button on the left.

  5. Select an intranet link using the instructions on how to insert links. Click Insert.
  6. (optional) If the link is added to a page that uses a Detailed Directory navigation Card, you can add a description of the link in the Summary box, and this will display below the link. 
  7. 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.
  1. Navigate to the parent page on which the link shows.
  2. Hover over the icon next to the link in the navigation; it will turn into an Edit icon (a pencil). Click on the Edit icon.

    1. Change link name: Edit the Title field of the link and then click Save at the top of the page.
    2. Change link address: Click Edit link under the current link path or address and change the link, then click Save at the top of the page.
    3. To delete link: Click Delete link underneath the Save button. Then click Delete in the pop-up window to confirm the deletion.

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.
  1. Navigate to the parent page on which the link lives.
  2. Hover over the icon next to the link in the navigation; it will turn into an Edit icon (a pencil). Click on the Edit icon.
  3. Click Move beside the link path above the page title. The Move pop-up window will open.

    1. Click the triangle to the left of a page to show or hide its subpages and navigate through the pages.
  5. Click Done at the bottom of the pop-up window. The link path above the page title will show the new location of the link.
  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 link editing 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 relevant.
  • Publish now: Click this to set the official publish time and date as the moment you click 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.
