When working with content types such as Articles and Basic Pages, etc you will have the ability to configure whether they show in the navigation menus. Below is a quick guide that shows how to configure which menu the link to the content page (also called a node) will display.

  2. select menu option from toolbarUsing the toolbar across the top of the screen, click on the Menu link.
  3. select the content menu optionAnother menu bar will appear directly under the first one. From here, select the Content option.
  4. click on the edit buttonThis leads you to the main content page displaying a list of all current nodes (basic pages, articles,etc) that exist on your site. Locate the node you wish to work with and click on the Edit link at the end of its respective row under the Operations column. We will work on the Introduction page.
