Create a New Menu Item/ Customize the Selected Menu Item

Menu items are the individual components of a menu. Both full-page menus and text link menus at the bottom of the page consist of menu items. You can add new menu items or modify existing ones.

WebTailor provides two columns for images with each menu item. This allows you to use a different image for main menu items and submenus. By default, all menus use the global images set in Customize Global UI Settings for the main menu and submenus. If a menu does not include submenus, the application page graphic is used. You can replace the default images by selecting a Bullet Override Image on this page.

To create new menu items or customize existing ones:

  1. Complete the required fields on the form (identified with an asterisk *) and any additional fields you need.
  2. Select Save Changes or Select Reset All Fields

To delete a menu item:
