Let's have a quick overview of the Pages Element, that will enable adding Pages and managing the navigation on your site.
To get started, go to Elements Section and add the ‘Pages’ icon to the Crafting Area.
Now select the pages that you want to be visible on your site menu.
Once the pages are added, click on and you'll be navigated there to further edit it.
To add new pages, go to Dashboard → Pages App → click on the '+' icon. For more information about how our Pages App works please visit this article.
By clicking on Edit Page you will access the Settings of your pages.
In General Settings section you can customize settings related to Subpages, Dropdowns and Dividers. For example, you can also set subpage dropdowns to open On Click or On Hover.
In Layout settings you can customize the layout, mode, alignments, paddings, etc.
There are two ways to modify the mode of your navigation bar.
You can either set it to Standard or Burger, along with the Layout: Vertical or Horizontal.
Lastly you can edit your Burger settings by clicking on your Burger Menu → Edit Page → Burger Menu Settings.
You'll first be given the option to find the perfect icon. Just type in related niches in the search field, scroll down and you'll see all the available options.
Once you’re happy with the icon of choice, customize it further by, for example, changing its size, alignment; whether it should open up from the left or right side of the screen and even use the color tool to make it more colorful!
FYI, the system automatically generates a dropdown menu for your Website on Mobile view as the best scenario for mobile navigation is to use a so-called burger menu.
If you want to customize the design and style of the Navigation bar specifically for Mobile version, first you'll need to make changes on your Desktop.
To do so:
Change your Menu type from Standard to Burger from Page Settings → Layout Settings.
Customize Burgers Design by clicking on Burger Settings → Edit Page Styles.
After, just set it back to Standard.
!Note: The latter one allows your burger menu to appear only on mobile version, while all style changes will be still saved.
Styles - What about changing the way your navigation looks on your pages?
Simply go to Style Settings in order to set the Label Font, Size, Weight, Distances and more for the pages and subpages. You also have the option change the Colors and Shadows for things like page labels, active or on hover, etc.
Feel free to play with colors using the Colors Tool.
Alignment - You may not like how your Page Element is positioned on the page, never mind. All you need to do is click on the ‘Alignment’ icon to fix this.
Visibility Settings - It enables making a certain Element/Block appear on Desktop, Mobile only, or everywhere by default. Simply hit Visibility Settings and choose the desired option from the dropdown menu to get full control over the Visibility of the elements on your page.
Next comes Location visibility. Include or exclude specific cities or countries or set the appropriate Custom IP.
Mind the Session visibility as well. The latter one, allows to make certain elements visible only to the logged in users of your website. This works well with User Account element and can come in handy if you want to hide some content from users until they sign up to your website.
Trash Icon - If for some reason you want to remove your navigation bar, click the ‘Trash’ button and hit ‘Delete’ to confirm your action.
