Sidebar

The sidebar appears on the left side of the webpage and takes up a small amount of space. It can show the entire site, just the top level of pages, or selected pages. The other option is a horizontal navigation bar at the top of the pages.

  • Press settings cogwheel in top right hand corner
  • Select site layout under the site actions category
  • Select sidebar to toggle on
  • Click on the sidebar to edit
  • Add a title, check to display
  • You may uncheck automatically organize my navigation to custom add pages (like horizontal navigation)
  • Or decide how many levels of pages it shows. 
    • 1 will only show the top pages (no subpages)
    • 2 will show pages and subpages
    • 3 will show pages, subpages, and three deep pages
    • All will show all pages on the site.
  • Adding sitemap or recent activity is an option, but unless only the top level of pages are shown, there is little point in adding a sitemap.

In addition:

  • By pressing the pencil icon you can change the sidebar to the right side or change the width
  • By pressing the + icon you may add extra sidebar items such as text, recent activity, My recent activity, countdown to a specific date, site owners (at permissions level), or page authors. You may click and drag these different items above or below the navigation.
