External URLs for Sections/Subsections

Follow

Overview

Sometimes you may want to have your section/subsection navigation point to a different page. For example, you may want to have a subsection point to your homepage, a topic page, a static page, or a location/event search page.

To do this:

  1. Log in as an Admin.
  2. Go to the Edit Page for the section you want point elsewhere.
  3. In the External URL field, put in the destination web address or relative path.

Samples

Add a Home button to your navigation with this URL:

/index.html

Sample topic URL:

/topics/topic-name/

Sample location search URL:

/search/location/restaurant-search-title

Default contact form URL:

/contact.html

 

 


 

Linking to a Location Search

  1. Log in as an Editor.
  2. Copy the Relative URL from the Location Search page.
  3. Log in as Admin.
  4. Go to Sections and create your new Section or Subsection, and name it after the search you just created.
  5. The URL name and Relative URL fields on your new section will auto-fill in accordance with the Section/Subsection name. You can leave that as is so that if you ever change the External URL again (see 6.), your Section will still have a URL.
  6. Paste the Relative URL that you copied from the Location Search into the External URL field: Example: "/search/location/location-search-name/"

NOTE: With that Relative URL, you can link from Sprockets and Content directly.

 


 

Linking to an event search

  1. Log in as an Editor.
  2. Copy the Relative URL from the Event Search page.
  3. Log in as Admin.
  4. Go to Sections and create your new Section or Subsection, and name it after the search you just created.
  5. The URL name and Relative URL fields on your new section will auto-fill in accordance with the Section/Subsection name. You can leave that as is so that if you ever change the External URL again (see 6.), your Section will still have a URL.
  6. Paste the Relative URL that you copied from the Event Search into the External URL field: Example: "/search/event/event-search-name/"

NOTE: With that Relative URL, you can link from Sprockets and Content directly.
