Adding Drop Downs

Dropdowns are an extension of your main navigation- to allow quick navigation for any other related pages to your navigation.

*Please note that sub-navigation/drop-down menus are currently only available for Primary Navigation and Sticky Navigation.

Pages that you’d like to display in a sub menu must be assigned to the Page that is displayed on the Primary/Secondary Nav e.g. if you’d like to display the “Our Work” page under the “About Us” Menu item, you would assign the “Our Work” page to the “About Us” Page. 

  • Edit Page > Page Settings > Enter the name of the parent page in the Assigned To textbox
  • Mega Nav > Yes, display in Primary nav dropdown.
