When a new section is created the system will automatically create a Section Landing Page so that the user has somewhere to go when clicking on the section name. You can edit this page as you would any other content page.
In the site section record you need to input the following fields:
Name: This is the name of the section that appears in the site section list.
Active: This must be set to true by checking the box for it to appear on the live site.
Caption: This is the language that will appear in the site navigation header. If you choose to use a graphic for the menu by uploading a .gif in the menu image field then the caption becomes the text for the alt tag.
Default Template: This is the default template you wish to use for the site section pages.
Default Content: Allows you to define the default content definition for the section. Content definitions allow you to define different content editors for the section.
Menu Image: This allows you to upload a graphic (.gif) for the header navigation. (Note: if you choose to upload a graphic the software will not reformat the graphic to fit in the space it will display the graphic as you have uploaded it. So you need to make sure your image is the correct height and color to match your header navigation.)
Menu Roll-over Image - This allows you to upload a second graphic (.gif) for the header navigation to cachieve a graphic effect when a user mouses over the section ame. (Note: if you choose to upload a graphic the software will not reformat the graphic to fit in the space it will display the graphic as you have uploaded it. So you need to make sure your image is the correct height and color to match your header navigation.)
Hide from menus- Checking this box removes this section from appearing in a navigation menu
Block from Users - Checking this box allows you to block the entire section to a group; this block flows down to all the pages within the section.
Alpha Sort order - This field defines the order of the section in the navigational menu
There are tabs in the section records as well, the tabs are as follows:
Java Script- Works the same as the tab in page content.
Select menus - Allows you to include this section in more than one navigation menu.
Content Blocking - Allows you to choose the groups that will have access through the block.
Control - Same as page content record.
