Category: Horizontal Tabs
Your website comes with a standard set of menu tabs across the top of each page. The leftmost tab is where we put most of the predefined pages we supply, with the exception of those on the Team tab. This serves as your site's "Home" tab and the accompanying menu can contain additional pages you define using the Menu Page form, explained below. The next tab is labeled Team. This is where you can find team specific pages such as schedules, game results, rosters, etc. To this list of tabs, you can also add new ones to help organize your site.
To add a new tab or to edit an existing one, click the "Horizontal Menu Tabs" choice on the Admin menu:
Admin > Config > Horizontal Tabs. This will bring up a list of Tabs already defined. You can click any Tab's name to edit its information or click the delete button to delete it.
Watch out! You cannot delete Tabs that have pages attached to them and in these cases, the delete icon will not appear. To delete a tab, first remove or delete all pages associated with the tab.
To add a new Tab, click the "Add Tab" link at the top of the page. This will bring up the Tab Information form with the following fields:
- Tab Name
- Type the title or caption of the tab here. Whatever you enter will be displayed for this particular tab on the horizontal row of tabs.
- You can use this field to specify the order of Tabs, other than the home and Team tabs which are fixed. The subsequent tabs are sorted and displayed alphabetically by default. You can override this order by assigning numbers to Tabs to control their order. For instance, to make a Tab appear as the first tab immediately after the Team tab, you could assign it the position number 10. The next tab could be numbered 20, the third 30, etc. By leaving a numerical gap between numbers, you leave room to insert other tabs within the order later.
- This field can optionally be used to password protect an entire menu on your site. Visitors will be prompted for the password you specify whenever they navigate to this tab. Thus, all pages assigned to this tab will be in effect password protected. You could use this feature to secure a board members only or coaches only area on your site.
- Optionally enter a URL that will direct visitors to a new page when this tab is clicked.
Note: Newly created tabs will not appear on the tab row until they have at least one page associated with them. To create a new page and assign it to a tab or to reassign an existing page to a tab, see Vertical Menu Pages.
