Hi,
I can't find how to modify the links in the menu of my site www.isabellemaillard.com . I used to do it, but something might have changed and I can't see any "link" option anywhere. I tried to create a new menu but it's the exact copy of the old one and has the same issues. Is there a bug ? Thanks, Isabelle.

You can change the page name from the page settings, or double click on the text in the menu and edit that text.

Well, I don't need to change the name of a page or a the name of a link. I need to modify the link of a menu button. I have 4 buttons on my menu and I want these buttons to go to a different page than it does now.

When I want to change the link of a word, the option "link" (with the icon of a link) appears, but when I want to do it for a menu button, this icon doesn't appear so I can't do it...

The navigation menu items link to pages on the site. Each page you create is made into a link. You may hide them in the menu if you like. What link are you trying to change and what are you trying to change it to? Unfortunately, you can't link offsite on the navigation menu at this time.

OK, I understand how it works, now. I was trying to do it the "old way" (before the new websitebuilder). Maybe this new builder is ok for most people, but I still prefer the old one. Thanks for the advice ;)

Hi Drew, I have a similar problem. I have a home page with a menu bar which includes a Privacy Policy. I have been asked to link a menu bar with only the Privacy Policy on it and asked to link it to a Privacy Policy page on my website. I can select the menu item with the privacy policy on it but, I do not have the option to link it to the Privacy Poilcy page. How can I do this

Hi Drew,
Thaank you for the quick response but, I want to explain my problem in better detail. I am able to create a menu bar with all 6 pages on it. I have been asked to also add a separate menu bar on the page with only the Privacy Policy link on it that takes the user to the privacy policy page. Is this doable.

Unfortunately, there can only be one site navigation element, but it should be acceptable that you add a button or image or text separately that you can link to any page.

Drew, I have now been asked to get the menu bar to not show the page you are on. Example: when on the "About Us" page - the menu bar will show all other pages but, NOT the "About Us" page. So , when you go to the next page whatever it is. The name of the page you are currently on, does not show in the menu bar.

You can make changes to the selected effect, but clicking on the menu and then more and advanced. On the right, click style. At the top, click button. At the bottom, you will see the selected button.
