Your site's nav bar/drop-down menus and footer are all composed of what Drupal calls menus. Here's how to manage them.
Out of the box, your menus will be set up according to your content planning spreadsheet (see: Step 1: Planning your content migration with the content spreadsheet). And in general, if you want to make a change to your drop-down menus, you'll do it by first creating the content your new menu link will point to.
Research has found repeatedly that very few people navigate websites by methodically clicking through their top-level menus—more people will likely find what they need directly from Google searches, will enter your site via links shared on social media, or will click a link offered with context within the content of your page. So your menu doesn’t need to contain EVERYTHING—in fact, it shouldn't. A good way to think of the menu’s role is to list the most common questions you think your users may bring to your site, and then ask yourself if the navigation menu provides a logical starting point for most users to find the answers. If your menus are too full of choices, they can actually paralyze your users with too many choices. And we don't want that!
Note: Menus are similar to your site's Categories, but they are not the same. Think of your Categories as your site's behind-the-scenes table of content (every page you create must be filed under a Category). Your menu is essentially a list of shortcuts If you're adding a new Category to your site (say, a category to organize multiple pages being created for a new engagement campaign), you should use the Landing Page Wizard (linklink) which will create a menu link, category, and landing page for you all at the same time.
OK, so with that out of the way, here's instructions that cover all the reasons you may have to add things to your menu. These instructions assume a basic familiarity with the different types of pages in the system (see: A guide to all your site's Content Types)
You can always edit the menus directly, rather than editing the pages you'd like to add to the menu. This is handy for when you want to create a menu link that links to another Audubon or other external site.
Add the steps involved:
Hover over the menu you’d like to edit while logged in as an admin. Click the Gear link that appears in the upper right of the menu itself, and click Edit Links. (You can also find the menu you want to edit in your admin bar by going to Structure -> Menu).
To edit where an existing menu link, click “Edit” next to the relevant link. Then, in the Path field, paste the path of the page you’d like to point to. You can include a full URL here, but it’s easiest to just include everything that comes after the slash in the domain name. This will also ensure that the Menu link continues to work when we switch your new site from your temporary staging URL to your site’s full URL.
To add a menu link for a page on your development site at:
You would copy everything after the .com/, which here would be:
Take the proper path and paste it into the Path field, and save the menu item.
If you are adding a menu item, click the "Add link" button at the top and follow the above instructions.
