Menu item settings
When you create a new menu item, you will have three options when choosing a 'Link type':
- None: No link will be set for the menu item. When someone clicks it on your website, nothing will happen.
- URL: Enter a specific URL. When a person clicks the menu item on your website, they will navigate to the URL you entered. It's recommended to only use this option for external websites.
- Page: Choose a webpage from the module 'Structure & Pages'. When someone clicks the menu item on the website, they will navigate to this specific webpage.
When you choose URL or page, you can decide in what way the link will be opened. You have three choices at 'Target':
- Same window: The visitor leaves the current webpage and opens the new page in the same window. This is the recommended setting due to accessibility for disabled visitors.
- New window: The target webpage will be opened in a new window.
- Pop-up: The target webpage will be opened in a pop-up window. You can set the width and height of the pop-up window, as well as the name.
