Here is where you can create new navigation menus for your website. 


Here we are taking a look at the default "Primary" menu for your journal's website. This is the navigation menu that your users will interact with the most, and should reflect the priorities of your journal. The "Title" and "Active Theme Navigation Areas" boxes are for users of OJS 3 exclusively and will not appear to viewers of your journal's website. "Active Theme Navigation Areas" will offers the most important designation of the menu as "Primary" or "User". The "Primary" area refers to your journal's public homepage and website, whereas "User" area refers to the internal dashboard and navigation menu for OJS 3. You can then drag the various items to reorder the current menu, or move items to the assigned or unassigned boxes. If you wish to add an item that is not available on this list, check the section below for instructions. 

Here is how the above Navigation Menu appears to viewers of journal's website. Since there is no content in "Announcements", the link does not appear on your menu, but it will appear as soon as any content is added.

Select "Add Menu" from the upper right corner of the "Navigation Menus" box. The "Title" and "Active Theme Navigation Areas" boxes are for users of OJS 3 exclusively and will not appear to viewers of your journal's website. "Active Theme Navigation Areas" will offers the most important designation of the menu as "Primary" or "User". The "Primary" area refers to your journal's public homepage and website, whereas "User" area refers to the internal dashboard and navigation menu for OJS 3. 

You can then drag the various items to reorder the current menu, or move items to the assigned or unassigned boxes. Any page without current content in OJS 3, marked by the crossed out eye symbol, will not appear in your actual menu until content has been added to that section of the website, even if it is placed in the "Assigned Menu Items" category. If you wish to add an item that is not available on this list, check the section below for instructions.


After selecting "Add item" in the upper right corner of the "Navigation Menu Items" box, you will be required to submit a Title and Path for your new menu item.
