Advanced Googlesite Menus


The Improving the Look TIPS section already mentioned the fundamentals of proper menus structure:
  • Pages in the menu are sorted ALPHABETICALLY
  • Pages are NESTED in the menu according to where they are located

Once you mastered them, you have a few other ADVANCED options available to control how menus are presented:

1. AUTOMATIC vs MANUAL menu creation
OPTIONS alter the way menus appear - to keep things simple, do not alter them unless your teacher suggests it's appropriate
  • Automatic
  • Manual
  • LINK DEPTH

2. HORIZONTAL Menus
This required manual editing of the menu items

Editing Menus

  1. Click "Edit Sidebar"
  2. Under Navigation, click "edit"
  3. OPTIONS
    1. "Automatically Organize" is your best option to get started - it will sort menus alphabetically
    2. "Levels of Pages to show" can be increased from 2 to 3 if you keep your page names short enough
    3. "Sitemap" can be turned off to make the page appear a little neater
