Step 6

Enter a name you wish to appear on the Main Navigation on the front end of the website. You do not need to give your Navigation item the same name as it's node name. E.g. if you were linking to a Frequently Asked Questions page you prefer it to read FAQs in the navigation. This offers your content editors maximum flexibility when editing Navigation in the CMS.

Step 7

Once you're ready be sure to click "Add" on the right side of the table, this will ensure your link is locked into the navigation ready to save and publish.
