How to add a link in the Site Map Editor

You can use eCatholic's Site Map Editor to easily create a link in your site's navigation menu. Here's what you need to do:


Open the Site Map Editor

First, open the Site Map Editor by clicking Site Map in the blue Admin Toolbar. Then, find the Site Map Toolbar, which is located at the bottom of the Site Map Editor. The toolbar contains elements you can drag and drop into the Site Map.


Drag and drop the Link element into the Site Map

To add a link, click and drag the Link element into the Site Map Editor. Drop the element exactly where you want it to appear within the Site Map. You will then be prompted to finish creating the link by defining certain details.


Enter the link's name, URL, and other details

After you drop the Link element into the Site Map, a dialog box will appear prompting you to fill in the following details.

  • Link Name - The title that appears in your site's navigation menu.
  • Link Type - External links direct visitors to a page that is not part of your website; Internal links direct visitors to a page within your website.
  • Link URL - The destination to which you would like to send visitors.
  • Display in Navigation - Toggle to On if you would like the link to be visible in your navigation menu.

Once you've entered all the required information, click Save to create the link.


Test your link

After adding your linked page, scroll back over it and select the preview option (magnifying glass) to test your link.


Save and exit the Site Map Editor

When you are finished working in the Site Map Editor, click the green Save button at the bottom of the screen. Click Save and Exit to leave the Site Map Editor. Then, the new link will appear on the live version of your site.
