Menus are a great way of providing your users with access to what's important on your website. We suggest limiting the number of primary menu items to 5-7 as to not clutter the main navigation.

Quick Menu:

Before we start, here's some helpful definitions 📖

Menu Label

This is what you see on your website menu. Example: About Us, Giving, News.

Menu Link

The Link is where you want the user to go when they click on the menu. This could be a link to a page on your site or it could be a different website.

  • Events link "/events"

  • News link "/news"

Using the Dropdown Selector

You can quickly and easily link to any area of your Tithely Site using the dropdown selector. Simply click the dropdown and select the area you'd like to link to.
Example: If you have a particular page you're wanting to link the menu item to, select Pages. Then a secondary dropdown menu will appear, you can select the exact page to connect the menu item to here. Click Save Link to save your changes.

Manual Link Entry

To determine what the link should be, go to the page you want to create a link for and check the link in the address bar of your browser.
For example, if you wanted to link to the Children's Ministry you would type in '/ministries/childrens-ministry' to the link tab.

🌟 Tithely Tip: When linking to an internal page on your site, you only need to grab everything after the .com/.ca/org.
