SiteMaker: The Basics...........2. Editing Menus



Please note that if you have purchased your Sitemaker package after the 4th June 2013 you will be using our new version of Sitemaker.

The new version creates a website in HTML5 rather than flash, making our Sitemaker website viewable on many popular phones and tablet devices.

Because of this some of the Support Centre articles may not apply to your Sitemaker configuration. To make it easier we have appended all relevant articles with HTML5 to make it easier for you to find your desired guide.

Menus can be repositioned through Page Master as explained in 'SiteMaker: The Basics...........1. Adding your Site Name'.

Now that you have settled on a new position for you menu, you may wish to rename the 'tabs' so that they relate to the type of website you are trying to create.

Click Pages on your editing toolbar and the 'Page Management' menu will appear on the left of your screen. Select Organise your pages.

'Add and organise pages' will appear. This dialog box will allow you to amend your page names, add a new page and also hide your pages.
