Site Navigation

Footer Navigation

All sites include an editable Footer navigation. 

You can add links to them just like other navigation lists but they come already set-up with 2 links:

  1. Terms and conditions - the link will take them to a page with the terms you set up in your settings
  2. Customer service - the link will open up the email service on their computer with an email filtered with your email in the to field. To edit that email address check your account settings


Create a New Link (Navigation) List

  1. Select Marketing from your Simplero Dashboard
  2. Choose Website from the dropdown menu
  3. Select the Link lists tab
  4. In the upper right corner, click the blue Create new list button


  5. Give your navigation list a Name and Handle. The handle is important as it is a key used to refer to this navigation list from within your theme.

  7. Type in a Label and select a Link to a page from the drop-down menu

To Create a Dropdown Menu

  • To use the new feature, you need to first create a dropdown folder.  Do this from the page editor, the same way you add a page to your Site.  Click + Add and choose "Folder"
  • Drag it to represent the menu order you'd prefer. 
  • Drag subpages under it
    • Note: The dropdown folder is not a page itself. It only contains pages. Any existing top-level pages will need to go under the new dropdown folder.  
  • If you click on the name of your dropdown folder (from the public view) you can choose a page from the folder to navigate to.

It works exactly the same way on both websites and membership sites. 

 

To Use Drop down Menus Instead of Sidebar

  • Turn off the sidebar menus, by customising the theme settings
    • If you have sidebar enabled you'll need to turn it off (for the page or in the theme (for the site) if you want the sidebar to go away.  We wanted people to be able to have both dropdown and sidebar if they wanted.
    • If you have subpages and are using a sidebar, you will still see that.  We didn't want to surprise anyone by moving their pages around!
