Side Navigation

Side navigation include provides links to navigate within the section or directory the page is located.

  Navigation

As a file, it is named _nav.inc, and is stored in the section with the other page files. There is one sidenave file in each directory, and the pages within that directory pull that sidenav onto each page so all the navigations are the same. Because of this, if a page in the directory is changed, only the include file need be edited to reflect that. The change will then automatically appear on all other pages in the directory. 

When creating a new page, there will be an option to create a new navigation item along with the page, which will automatically add the appropriate link to the include file.

For more information, visit the Creating a New Page page.
