error 404 page has ended up in the navigation bar. How do I delete it there but keep it as a page?.


The 404 page was inadvertently deleted so I added another page. Now it's in the Nav bar and I'm not sure how to get it out without losing it.

New add on page missing from page view. How do I remove it?.

After we published our site we tried to add a new page. When we hit the publish button the page went missing. We tried to find it and ended up and added a link. The page is still missing from our view page, but now it shows up on the website as a link. How do I remove this as it is not showing up in my page view?

It sounds like you may have accidentally deleted the web page. If it's not showing up under the "View Page" button then it's gone. Be careful not to click the small X's that show up on that drop-down menu as those are the delete buttons.

Follow the steps in this thread to delete the unwanted navigation links.

These answers do not apply to the specific problem that I have. When people navigate from page to page on my site, every page that they visited remains at the top of the page. It causes some computers to operate very slowly. Please address this problem and don't group it other topics that have nothing to do with the problem!

Hello Mike6437,

When you created your links, you slected the wrong button which instructs the links to open in new windows. Follow this thread: https://community.homestead.com/homes...

Look closely at the image in step #5. Be sure to click the radio button that is labeled "In the current browser window"

You'll have to repeat the process for each links and navigation menu that is doing this.

How can I add a tab to our top main menu? Can I import an pdf doc?.


We have seven tabs in our main menu at the top of our website. We need to add an eighth. can you explain how?

Also, we need to import a pdf doc into a page. Is that possible?

Thanks!

When you get to step 3, just click the "plus" sign instead of the "minus" sign.   Concerning the pdf.... A pdf is not a web  friendly format so you can't embed it into a page.  You can either create a link to the document and allow people to download it, or convert it to an image file and then import it like any other picture.

Delete page.


After deleting pages from my site the side bar still shows the deleted pages, both on the sitebuilder as in the preview for the site. By clicking on it, the website changes back to its old design (from before the last saved changes) and says page cannot be found. Am afraid to publish my changes now, would look rather stupid and not very professional...

phantom page.


at the top of my page it says "home" "about me" "photo gallery"...and "clients"
I removed "clients" page (max of 3 pages) but is still says "clients" at the top of page
when you click on "clients" you get error message that says page was removed.
I would rather remove the word "clients" from top of page for a more fluid sleek look to my page.
I can't figure out how.
does anyone kno???
