The one trick for an uncluttered main menu

Have you recently created a new page on your website that you don’t really need in your menu? Hiding a page takes a few moments, and using the URL (the direct link to the page) is easy. Read on for a quick how-to.

First, of course, build the page.

Once you have your page set up, return to the gdSiteBuilder, and simply select “Turn Off” under “Page Status.”

To access the page, you’ll need the direct link, so click the page to open it in your browser, then copy the URL. It will look something like this:

http://nwhomesonline.com/index.cfm/page/38753/Featured_Listings.html

The contents of the page will determine what you do with the link.

Add it to a listing

If your page has a video or photo gallery, add the link to the listing. Begin at the gdListingManager and select the listing you want to add to, then paste the URL you previously copied into one of the Virtual Tour link fields. Click ‘set’ and you’re done.

Add it to another page

Add a link to any page using a page layout tool.

Edit the page layout tool,

and type the name of your link, for example “my cool new page”. Highlight the text and click the link button,

then paste the URL in the URL field and click OK.

Save your changes, and you’re done.

You can also share the link in your social networking sites!
