About nodes

A node represents a page on your site, or it can be left empty when used to contain a sub-menu.

Any node you create can contain its own set of nodes or 'child-nodes'. So if you want to add the section ‘Gallery' to your website which comprises of two sub-sections such as 'Landscapes' and ‘Portraits', you would firstly create a new node named ‘Gallery', and then create two child-nodes within ‘Gallery' for ‘Landscapes' and ‘Portraits'. We will come to creating child-nodes later.

Creating a Node

To add a new entry to your site-map, click the 'Create Node' button. You will then be prompted to name the node with the option to position it at any point on the map.

Repositioning Nodes

To move a node up or down the node list or to completely remove a node (and its child-nodes), click the minus symbol on the node entry:

Renaming Nodes

To rename a node, click on the node title - this will go to a new page of the site-map where the node you have clicked is highlighted. Clicking the highlighted node again will allow you to rename it. Clicking the < symbol will take you back to previous site-map page.

Creating Child-Nodes

As described above, you can click on a node’s title to select that node and open its page within the site-map. The selected node will be highlighted and the < symbol will allow you to go back to the previous site-map page.

The process for creating a child-node is exactly the same as already described - just click the 'Create node' button as before and follow the same steps.

With a new page of child-nodes created, you can either go back to the previous page of the site-map or click on the title of one of the new child-nodes to create nodes within that node.

As mentioned, child-nodes are ideal for adding drop-down menus to your site.
