Help: Content Management: Creating Menus
Menu Text
The fist task to complete when creating a Content Management Web site is to create the menu structure.
The content management system can hold up to three levels of menus.
The fist menu title created has a unique property, in that it sets the home page. Once created it can be repositioned in the top level menus but wherever it is positioned it will still point to the home page
Once the first level menu has been created click [Update] button to save the menu. The content management will then create a new line for the next menu item. Repeat this procedure until all top level menu items have been created. Menus items may be repositioned at any time by using the [Order] button on the far right hand side of the edit menus screen.
To add a second level menu item click on the menu ID number situated to the left of the menu title. This will open the second level menus for the top level menu created previously.
Once the menu item has been created click the [update] button as when creating the top level menus until Repeat this procedure until all second level menus have been created. Additional menu items maybe created at any time.
Third level menu items are created in the same way as Top and Second level menu items.
Graphic
This section allows a user to select a graphical menu button instead of the standard text menu items as described in the previous section. Graphics may be uploaded in the same way as uploading images. This process is described fully in the Uploading files section.
Style
Style refers to the colour, font, and default justifications for a web site. This information is held in a .css file. By default there is one .css file defined per site and all menus have their properties defined by this .css file.
It is possible to have more than one style for menus in the content management system. If more than one style file has been created for a content management site it is possible to create menus with different styles. Enter the name of the style in the style box.
Destination
Occasionally customers require to call a file or web page from outside the content management system. By entering the location of the file eg an html or pdf document when an end user clicks on the menu item the document will be displayed. Documents may be uploaded by clicking on the [view files] button. A detailed description of this is aavailable in the uploading files section.
Form Action
The AWnet content management system has the functionality to add forms eg. contact forms. By selecting Email from the form type it is possible to create a form that will be emailed to a specified recipient. A detailed explanation of forms can be in the edit menu section.
Another form functionality is to set it to allow integration with WorldPay. Awnet are a WorldPay partner and the content management system allows customers to create an on-line shop. This is an add on to the standard content management system. Customers requiring World Pay integration must call AWnet to configure their site and World Pay account.
