Navigation in OU Campus

What's New?

Editing multiple navigation files are now a thing of the past! So you no longer need to navigate to different levels of navigation files. All changes to the navigation will be done in one file.

Our campus navigation menus only display 4 levels of navigation.

This looks like:

  • /Your site  (Level 1)
    • /category - folder (Level 2)
        • /sub-category - sub-folder (Level 3)
            • /sub-sub-category folder (Level 4)
navigation
 

Caution: If you have a sub-sub-sub-category (5th level) folder your navigation won't display properly.

Updating a Site's Navigation

  1. Once finished adding files or pages (see Adding Files to OU guide and/or Adding Pages to OU guide) navigate to the _includes folder at the Site level (Level 1). Then, select on the _nav.pcf file and use the green "Edit Navigation" button.

  2. Type in the item(s) that need to be added to the navigation and link them as a regular hyperlink.
    Indent the bulleted list entry to correspond with the sub level of the folder. 

    Important: Make sure that all items shown in the navigation are spelled correctly and are linked in a bulleted list. Unlinked text or text outside of the bulleted list is not allowed and would break your menu display.

  3. Click the Save button in the WYSIWYG editor – this will save your changes as a development draft.

  4. Click Publish if the edits are ready to go live.

Deleting Items from a Navigation:

  1. Navigate to the _includes folder at the Site level (Level 1) and select the _nav.pcf file in OU Campus. Use the green "Edit Navigation" button.

  2. Delete the bulleted item(s) from the list.

  3. Click the Save button in the WYSIWYG editor – this will save your changes as a development draft.

  4. Click Publish if the edits are ready to go live.
