Event navigation

Use custom event navigation to override the default navigation set at platform level

What is it?

You can override Platform navigation by adding a cusotm nav at event level.

What are the benefits of it?

Guide entrants through event-specific pages. Through the use of event-specific navigation, you avoid congesting the main navigation and can have streamlined navigation options for entrants to shuffle through.

Step 1:

Set up custom navigation for your event by going into:

Events module and editing the relevant event > Under Online Event Options > scroll down to Advanced Options >  click Custom Navigation.

Click to expand

Step 2:

Click the tick box next to Enable a custom nav for your event. Scroll down to Primary Navigation > Add Navigation Option. Select which nav type you want to use (Primary Navigation is the default) and then enter your information.

For information on nav types and how to create your nav, read this article. This article explains how to create and set up your navigation links and arrange them within the navigation area such as alignment and Primary/Secondary and Tertiary Nav examples.

Add a custom logo

In custom navigation, you can also add a custom event logo and link this to the homepage of your event. By doing this, people will not be able to use the logo to navigate back to the landing page of your site.

You can do this by ticking the box Override Platform Logo, this will also bring up a selection of mobile and desktop logos to update.

Tips for Logo

We would recommend uploading the logo as a png with a transparent background.

You may want to add a custom logo if:

  • Your event has specific branding which the logo reinforces
  • The event will attract participants interested primarily in that event (not your site landing page or the wider charity)
  • You will be marketing one of your custom nav pages as the event landing page, so want the custom logo to reinforce the event’s distinctive experience
