Menus

There are many different menus used throughout the FHSU website.  Most menus are at the control of the web content manager and a request must be made to make a change to these menus. 

Menus that are at the control of CMS users are the horizontal menus at the top of each content page.  These are referred to as “Collections” in our CMS.

The below images show some samples of menus that are controlled by the web content manager, as well as the “collections” that can be updated by our CMS users.

Collections Overview

Collections are used to organize content to make it easier for users to navigate through your webpages.  Please keep in mind that the collection list should not contain too many tabs.  If possible, the tabs should stay on one row.  Not only is this more visually appealing, but it is also easier for visitors to quickly navigate your site.  Ease of use and the ability to quickly find the desired information is what visitors need.

Collection tab names:  The name that is on each tab is the name of the content item that is added to the collection.  Name your content item exactly what you want to appear on the tab.

Collections apply to an entire folder from the folder hierarchy.  This is important to note, as many times users want to break down the folder hierarchy into subfolders.  Each folder will need to have its own collection created in this case. 

 

Add a collection


1.     Navigate to the folder where you would like to add your collection.  All HTML content items inside this folder will now use this collection.
2.    Click New > Collection

3.    Give your collection a name and checkbox include subfolders.  Including the subfolders allows a user to add collection items from other folders within the respective main folder.  It does not mean that the collection will be applied to every subfolder beneath the main folder.
