Add a Navigation Folder

Group sub-navigation items with the folders feature. With the help of this feature, you do not need to create an extra page to organize related pages or anchors. You can add a non-clickable folder item to the navigation and group all related pages or anchors as its sub-items.

Folders appear under the “Pages” tab to help you organize your navigation items, however, folders themselves are not actual pages. They are elements intended for grouping other items together. This is why page-specific elements (such as URL and SEO optimization) or editing options (such as duplicate or set password) are missing from the folder settings.

Note

  • Navigation can have up to 3 levels, so folders can nest up to 2 levels of sub-items. You can place folders inside folders as 2nd level navigation items. However, because navigation cannot have more than 3 levels, you cannot use a folder as 3rd level item (it would have to be empty).
  • Deleting or hiding a folder in navigation will delete or hide all of its nested elements.

Add a Folder

To add a folder:

  1. In the left panel, click “Pages”, and then click “+ New Page”.
  2. Select “Folder” from the menu that displays.
  3. Type a name for the folder and click “+ Add Page”.
    When adding a folder, ensure it is compatible with the layout of the navigation on mobile view. Folders have no effect if they are placed on the slot allocated for clickable elements only, which is why they may not work on some mobile menu layouts.
  4. The new folder appears on the list of the pages of your site. It displays with a folder icon to distinguish it from pages.

Group Items under Folders

You can move pages or anchors under the folder item by dragging pages slightly to the right under the folder.

Edit Folders

To edit a folder, click the “settings” icon next to the folder for options to Rename, Hide in navigation (per device or in general), or Delete the folder.

Note: A folder is not an actual page, so you cannot set a URL or a password for it, duplicate, or translate it.
