As of Fall 2019, we have websites using different themes that handle menus a little differently:
UT WordPress theme: editors follow custom menu instructions.
University Responsive theme:
For most of these sites, pages are automatically added to the menu when they are published, just follow the instructions below. A small number of these sites require an Administrator or the COFA Web team and are using a custom menu. If the instructions below do not work for you, please let us know.
Pages saved as Draft do not appear in the menu.
The placement of the link to a page in the menu is controlled by the Parent and Order settings in the Page Attributes area of the edit screen.
Parent – You can arrange your pages in hierarchies. For example, you could have an “About” page that has “Life Story” and “My Dog” pages under it. There are no limits to how many levels you can nest pages.
Order – Pages are usually ordered alphabetically, but you can choose your own order by entering a number (1 for first, etc.) in this field.
