Webster+ Setup and Configuration

Menu Maintenance

Webster+ has an integrated Menu system that can be used to help users navigate your Web site. This is ideal for menus that you will be using in several places. A menu definition can be maintained in one place and then referenced by name wherever needed. Webster+ also supports a TopMenu option that allows you to specify a menu that will appear across the top of any page. This may be further customized based on the template chosen.

To run the Menu Maintenance utility, select Menus from the top menu of the Webster+ system setup. The following window is displayed:

To define or edit a menu:

Enter the Menu name or click the lookup button to recall existing menus. The navigation buttons are used to scroll through the defined menus.

For each menu item, you can provide the following:
