    Adding Sub-menu

    Hello. I want to add a sub-menu item so when someone's mouse goes over the main menu "About Us" the sub item shows "Instructors". I want the users to be able to select "Instructors" and be taken to a page detailing that information. I don't want it to go to the "About Us" page (which happens now).  Help????

    Re: Adding Sub-menu

    Are you using website builder or is this an organic site?

     

    If it's organic, I can probably help.  Post the code you're using for the menu.  Are you using jQuery or another javascript framework?

    Re: Adding Sub-menu

    I see explicit instructions in the "old" Website Builder - does exactly what I want.  However, I can't locate how to do this in the "new" GoCentral website editor I am working with.  Can you or anyone else help point me to where this is described?  Thanks.

    Re: Adding Sub-menu

    I see your comment was in 2016 and it looks like we still have the same problem a year later. Is there a solution or it just can't be done in Go Central ? I have just recently signed up for Go Central and now I find out that I can't do some common tasks like add an action button that will link to a file, increase the font size in sections, add a sub menu to the navigation bar. It is getting frustrating to say the least.

    I would also like to do drop menu. I can't believe that isn't an option, seems a bit ridiculous.

    Re: I need to create a drop down menu on my navigation

    Are you kidding me? No drop down menu for nav bars? You all do know we are no longer in the 1800's! Surely something as basic as this could be produced by one developer while the others sleep! YES, PASS IT ALONG WITH A CATTLE PROD PLEASE.

    Re: I need to create a drop down menu on my navigation

    I to am trying to add sub menus. This is horrible that a company like go daddy does not allow it but smaller companies like weebly do. Total waste of my money and to think I was going to recommend it to the company I work for as they are not happen with who we have now.

    Re: Adding Sub-menu

    Has anyone found a solution to this or is GoDaddy pushing us off?

    Re: I need to create a drop down menu on my navigation

    This is seriously rediculous. Especially considering that their previous website builder allowed you to make drop down menus. I'm also noticing that if you have too many tabs, that it just makes a drop down menu for you and lumps all your other pages together. What?

    Re: I need to create a drop down menu on my navigation

    I thought I was a numbskull as I have been trying in vain to add drop-downs to my website. I find it hard to believe the limited availability of key UI widgets in GoCentral/WebsiteBuilder. I can't even 'tab' my pages if I have lots of products to display (had to improvise by using the 'Button' widget provided. This is really absurd as Godaddy seems to be out of touch with what is not even a modern day technology. Next project suggestion for Godaddy: 'Modernization of GoCentral/WebsiteBuilder'.

    You mean I spent the better part of a day creating the main navigational framework/pages and there's no way to add subpages? Really? How do you expect anyone to have a site with substantial content without it becoming a navigational nightmare? Like Kodakevin said in his reply, please pass this on--with a cattle prod!

    Re: Adding Sub-menu

    I found it.  When you're in edit mode, click on the menu bar you've already created, then click settings. A window will open, from there chose Edit Menu.  From there you can make existing menus sub menus and change the order by moving them up and down.  Hope this helps!

    Re: I need to create a drop down menu on my navigation

    So I am new to this tool and just got off the phone with tech support. I asked about drop down menus and was pointed to this forum. They could have told me that you cannot do it and I would have said, that makes it unusable to me, case closed. It is really hard to believe that this cannot be done.

    Re: I need to create a drop down menu on my navigation

    This may not be what you need, but I did discover this. The more navigational titles you add, the more you get. In the template I'm using, it puts "More" across the top and then the additional ones show up there. Didn't know if that would help some people. However, these are NOT sub-categories. The only place I see to get subcategories is under the Shop title. There you can add more subcategories. (Not sure if you can change the word Shop to something else.) If you can use this, it may help some folks.

    Re: I need to create a drop down menu on my navigation

    Just found out the same.......GoCentral does not allow drop down menus. Lame. Support gladly offered to get me back to version 7 for an additional $10/month! I will be requesting a refund.  If they don't provide it, I will be referring my clients elsewhere. 

    Re: I need to create a drop down menu on my navigation

    This simply is not acceptable that sub menus cannot be created in the gocentral website builder. Is it possible in website builder 7? if yes, is there a way to change the gocentral plan to website builder 7 plan?

    This answer is not for GoCentral. It can not be done with GoCentral and people have been requesting it for a year. I am now trying Word Press a little harder however great tutorials on YouTube. Plan to cancel GoCentral free trial given they can not add a feature like this in a year.

    When will sub-pages be available!!??!!

    A few weeks ago I switched from Website Builder, which had a lot of functionality, but poor design templates.  Now I love Go Central's ease and the look, but I can't believe it doesn't allow for sub-pages!  My customer sales rep said this is being addressed and will be fixed, but now I am suspicious.  I see this issue has been discussed for over a year on this help forum.  

     

    This seems like a very basic issue and we need answers and a realistic time-line!  Or maybe your sales team just says things that are untrue to make the sale?

    Re: When will sub-pages be available!!??!!

    Probably wont.  GoCentral is great if you want a basic cookie-cutter storefront.  Otherwise, it lacks customization ability.  I have called HELP so many times only to be told YOU CANT DO THAT NOW!!

    Re: When will sub-pages be available!!??!!

    You guys, it's available now! I'm using GoCentral to build a website, and here's how to add the dropdown:

     

    • Click to add a new page
    • Select "Dropdown menu" instead of "New page" (which is selected by default)
    • Name the menu whatever you want and make sure "Show in Navigation" is switched on
    • Voila! You have a dropdown menu

     

    Hooray!

    Re: When will sub-pages be available!!??!!

    This is fantastic news, for new pages. 

     

    What about pages already established?  How do you change it from a main page in navigation to a drop down?

    How to Create a Drop Down Menu Go Central

    I was struggling with this too, and was able to work it out. Perhaps this information will help someone.

     

    See https://shop.pure-life.com a new GC site and Online Store we are working now.  Note the SHOP menu at the top. it is NOT the default Shop that is auto created when you have an online store which we do. I deleted that one actually  because i wanted more control of my menus. Too limited on the default one. ** SEE TECH NOTE BELOW

     

    Anyway, i created a new SHOP Drop Down menu as you will see on the site. Then you can add either PAGES or a LINK to an existing page to the drop down menu. (You will need the full URL for this). See the page called Shop/CHAYA, that is a Page and shown on the Shop drop down menu.

     

    Now look at the LEARN menu, another Drop Down i created. See the CHAYA under the Learn menu. This one is not a page but a LINK to the same CHAYA page (on the Shop menu). So i have one that is the page, and another that is link to an existing page. See what i mean?

     

    Couple Tech notes. 

    • You can create a new Page , HIDE it on the menu if you want, but you can still direct LINK to that page even it is not shown on any menu.
    • When you create a new Drop Down menu...you can choose to have the parent item (SHOP or LEARN in my example) to have a link or NOT have a link to anything. 
    • You cannot change the parent link on the default SHOP menu that GC creates. It automatically goes to ALL PRODUCTS in your online store. This was one of the limitation is wanted to get around.
    • See my Shop menu/ ALL PRODUCTS> That is a page that i created to show ALL products in my online store. That was done by creating that page, then adding a section called SELL ONLINE. Drops that module right on the page.
    • About deleting the existing default SHOP menu item that GC creates (not the manual one i explained above). Since the links are dynamic when you create new pages, the links are automatically modified when you move pages, rename etc. If you delete the default menu you may  need to check your site and update your links.

    Hope this is helpful to someone. 

     

    Have a good day. Len

    Go Central now has sub menus...   Check out the "Automotive" menu item on https://rrraceway.com

     

    You access it in "pages & navigation" and instead of new page, pick the drop down menu item.   🙂

    Re: Adding Sub-menu

    Right--- in Go Central you have an option under Add Pages for SUB MENU. In Website builder you do not.

     

    In WB you have to create the page, then manually indent it under the menu item you want it to be a sub of. This method also works in GoCentral too.

    My 2 cents.

    Re: Adding Sub-menu

    It cannot be true with CoCentral, there's no such option as Edit Menu...can you post photos you doing it?

    Re: I need to create a drop down menu on my navigation

    I agree with you completely.  By the time I found out how to create sub-menus, I had already created a handful of pages which I then needed to re-create as sub-menu pages. There was no way that I could see that allowed you to move parent level pages under sub-menus.
