Edit top bar menu

Here's how to edit the (green-coloured) top bar menu for this site.

Go to the Top Bar Menu control page.

With this page, you need to be more careful than with other pages. You'll see the items are ordered in the order they appear on the menu. If you add an item, either as a main menu item or as a pull-down item, make sure you stick to this order. Also, you cannot add anything else than such items on this page.

To add an item to the menu

  1. Click 'Edit' at the bottom of the page. This will open the editor.
  2. Add something in one of the ways specified below.
  3. When you're done, click 'save' to save.
  4. Check the result in the top bar menu.

To add an item to a pull-down list, linking to a page

Type:
* [[[page name]]]
or
* [[[page name | menu item name]]]
Make sure the line starts with: a space, an asterisk and another space, before the 3 square brackets.
page name is the name of the page the menu should link to; menu item name is the name of the menu item (if other than the page name).
