What is a Menu Group and how do I add a Menu Group Widget to my site?

A Menu Group allows an admin to create additional groupings of menu items that can then be added as a widget to the sidebar globally or on individual pages. 

To add a Menu Group to a page, you must first create the Menu Group by doing the following:

  1. Navigate to Content Management --> Menu Groups. On this page, you will see the System or Default Menu for your Conference365 site. 
  2. To add an additional Menu Group, click the “Add New Menu Group” button. Input the name of your new Menu Groupselect whether you would like the new Menu Group to have icons, and click “Save.
  3. Once your group has been created, look under the Actions column for a number of ways to edit that group. 
    1. Click the dark blue “Edit” icon to rename the Menu Group.
    2. Click the orange “Create Page/Widget” button to create a widget on a page for that Menu Group.
    3. Click the light blue “Items” button to add your menu items. Follow Step 3 in How do I edit the Navigation/Menu that users see on my site?” For additional information on adding menu items.
    4. Click the orange “Home” icon to set the Menu Group as the default menu for your site.
    5. Click the red “Delete” icon to delete the Menu Group. 
  4. Once your Menu Group has been created, you can add it to any page, or the global sidebar by selecting “Menu Group” as the widget type.
  5. Select either “Horizontal Menu” or “Vertical Menu” on the Menu Orientation line.
  6. Select the name of the Menu Group you wish to add using the widget and indicate if you would like menu icons to display in the widget or not.
  7. Once you have selected the Menu Group you wish to click “Save.” This will return you to the page editor for the page you are editing. Click “Save and Stay” to save your changes.
