The Custom Menu Builder control for Sitefinity CMS enables you to create and manage your websites menus effectively by building them within the CMS. By using the menu builder you don't need to rely on rigid sitemaps, giving you and your clients the flexibility to build and maintain your own menu tailored exactly to your needs.
So what does the control provide?
- Create a new menu by dragging existing pages from your Sitefinity sitemap. Unlike the sitefinity sitemap you can easily control and maintain the order of menus items and rename them as and when you want without having to change the underlying pages.
- Add your own links to external sites or unmanaged webpage's within your website.
- Control what menu items are visible to anonymous users.
- The menu structure (xml) can be saved as a Shared Menu. A shared menu is stored as a Generic Content Item within Sitefinity therefore enabling you to reuse the menu across your pages/master pages.
Overall the Custom Menu Builder picks up where Sitefinity left off and provides simple management and customisation of your website's menus.
