Correcting the "Exceeded Navigation Limit" error
If you are seeing an Exceeded Navigation Limit error message when logged into your site, chances are you've gone beyond the number of links allotted for your Main Navigation Bar. Look below to learn what it's about and how to fix it.
What is exceeding a navigation limit?
The Exceeded Navigation Limit error displays when there is too much verbiage on your Main Navigation Bar and the site cannot display all the links correctly.
How to correct it
Here are a few suggestions to avoid receiving the error message while optimizing your site's Main Navigation menu at the same time!
Shorten or abbreviate menu titles
Change words like "Religious Education" to "Religious Ed" or "Sacramental Preparation" to "Sacramental Prep."
Move pages under broader menu items
Reduce the number of Level 1 pages in the Main Navigation Bar by moving some items underneath a similar category. For example, the "About Us" section can contain the subpages History, Staff, Contacts Us, and Bulletins.
Utilize Quick Links
Another method would be to move some items into the Quick Links region. These could be links and pages used often by site visitors, but that don't necessarily have any subpages to display in the Navigation Bar. Navigation items and pages such as Home, Mass Times, and Contact Us are good for displaying in the Quick Links region.
NOTE: The Quick Link feature is available in all free themes except Lorenzo, Lourdes, Antioch, and Xavier. If you are using one of these free themes, you will not have the ability to add Quick Links.
