How do I show or hide a page in the navigation menu?

The navigation menu is the main method for navigating a SiteBuilder website. The first row displays the top-level sections and persists throughout the site, with sub-pages in the second row:

By default, pages are visible in the navigation. Occasionally, however, it's useful to have pages that are not displayed in the navigation menu (called local navigation).

There are two methods to show or hide pages:

  • Show or hide a single page via page properties
  • Show or hide multiple pages via a list

Show or hide a single page via page properties

  1. Browse to the page which you want to show or hide in the navigation.
  2. Go to Edit > Edit page properties.
  3. Select or unselect the Show in local navigation checkbox to specify whether the page should be displayed or not:
    Show in local navigation
  4. Select the Save button at the bottom of the page.

Show or hide multiple pages

This method is useful to quickly specify the show/hide property for multiple pages which sit at the same level in your site structure – for example, to specify which top-level sections immediately beneath the home page appear in the local navigation.

  1. Browse to the page above the set of pages for which you wish to edit the show/hide property.
  2. Go to Edit > More > Sub-pages tab.
  3. You'll see a list of pages below the one you're currently on. The eye icon denotes whether or not the page is visible in the navigation:

  4. Toggle the eye icon to specify whether the page should be displayed or hidden in the navigation.
