Use the Custom Links page to insert custom pages or categories into the navigation menu. Custom pages and categories, marked by the Custom icon, are also editable from this page.
Add a Category
You can add a category anywhere in the navigation. Only categories that contain at least one page will appear in the navigation. An effect of this is that categories inherit the restrictions of the pages they contain. For example, if a category has just District-only pages, it will not be available in the School context since there are no pages at the School level.
To add a custom category:
Click the three dots next to the category in which you want to add a category. To add a category at the top level, click the three dots next to Main Pages.
Click to add a category or subcategory. The button labels depend on whether the category will be nested inside another category or is at the top level.
Fill in the fields. The option to select an icon is only available for categories at the top level.
Click Add Category.
Add a Page Link
You can add a page anywhere in the navigation.
Click the three dots next to a category in which you want to add a page.
Click to add a link to the category. The button labels depend on the selected category.
Fill in the fields.
Some non-custom categories are only available in either the School or District context. When adding a page into one of these categories, the context field is set by the restriction of the category.
Some pages require a selection of students or staff to work with. Use the Require a Selection for Page Use field to indicate this page prompts a selection of students or staff if one has not already been selected.
Click Add Link.
Pages added to student or staff menus require a student or staff selection, so a query parameter is automatically added to the URL if not already provided.
The site checks for links in the site with the same URL. If one is found, the site checks if the query parameters are the same. If a URL match is found already on the site, but the two pages have different query parameters, select whether to add the new page.
By default, custom pages have the group default permission of the user that created them. To adjust these permissions, refer to Page-Level Permissions.
Edit a Custom Page or Category
You can edit any custom page or category.
Click the three dots next to a custom page or category.
Click the link to edit the page or category. The button labels depend on the selected page or category.
After making changes, click the button to update the selection.
