Set subpage navigation (hierarchy)

What is subpage navigation?

Page navigation controls how users journey through your site to find what they need. 

There are 3 levels of pages in your site:

  • L1: Home page
    • L2: Sections (usually linked to from the home page)
      • L3: Subsections (linked to from an individual section)

Its best to use these thematically, for example:

  • L1: Homepage [Fruit and vegetables]
    • L2: Fruit
      • L3: apples
      • L3: strawberries
      • L3: oranges
    • L2: Vegetables
      • L3: carrots
      • L3: potatoes
      • L3: asparagus
    • L2: Nutrition

The home page is the ‘parent’ of the sections Fruit, Vegetables and Nutrition. A section is a ‘parent’ of its subsections. For example, the Fruit page is the parent of the apples, strawberries and oranges pages. The apples, strawberries and oranges pages are children of the Fruit page.

This hierarchy controls how the campaign platform builds navigation and menus that let users find your pages. When you open a Level 2 page you will see a menu on the right which links to all of its ‘child’ pages.

Set up the hierarchy of your pages

Page hierarchy refers to the ‘parent’ and ‘child’ status of each page. You can set this up when you make this page or edit your page to add this information.

The campaign platform assumes all pages are ‘children’ of the home page. You only need to change the hierarchy for subsections.

To change your page’s hierarchy:

  1. In the left sidebar, click ‘Pages’.
  2. Click ‘Add new’ to create a new page – or hover over the page you want to edit and click ‘Edit’.
  3. If you can’t see the right settings sidebar, click the black ‘Settings’ button on the top right toolbar.
  4. In the right settings sidebar, click the ‘Page’ tab to make sure it’s selected.’
  5. Scroll down and click the arrow next to ‘Page Attributes’.
  6. Click the box beneath ‘PARENT PAGE’ and select the Section you want to be the parent.
  7. Change the order number to control the position children appear in the menu (0 is at the top).
  8. Click ‘Publish’ or ‘Update’.
