Navigation – Left - Free Form

You can find this section under Interface & Design > Navigation in the IRP Admin left navigation menu. You then click the Left - Free Form button at the top of the page.

This feature allows you to add and edit the content that will appear in the left navigation of your website. Note that the content will display only if the Set Left Hand Navigation Display Style Application Setting (located in the 'Navigation - Left' grouping) is set to 6. This provides the option to create unique left navigation menus rather than using the auto-generated left navigation.

Please note, to avoid front-end styling errors, the left navigation should not exceed 160px in width.

Content Editor

The editor window allows you to add plain text and HTML content to this section. You can modify or format plain text by using the various controls in the editor window. You can use hyperlinks, images and any other HTML content.

You can change the language by expanding the Language drop-down menu.

Get a Link

You can use the Link Generator to add hyperlinks to the content quickly. To use this feature, click the Get a Link button. This functions in the same way as the Link Generator described in the Top Tabs help topic. After generating a link, you can test it by clicking the View This URL button. This will open the link in a new browser tab. Once satisfied, you can add it to the content editor automatically by clicking the Insert Link button.

Add a File

You can add files or images to the content editor quickly by clicking the Upload Files button. This opens the file management functionality in a light box:

After adding an image to the file management Left folder, you can add it to the content by highlighting the image, copying the link and adding it to the HTML content.

Saving Changes

Once you are happy with the content, click the Update Left Navigation button to save it (this button must be pressed for changes to take effect). Changes will not be visible on the front end until the website is uncached in the Reload Settings section or when you click the Uncache button in the bottom navigation bar of the IRP.

CSS

When you click the CSS button at the top of the screen, you can select one of the following options:
