Navigating through a portal should be effortless and intuitive. That's where well-crafted navigation links come into play. In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of creating effective navigation links on your Pory portal, enhancing your site's usability and visitor experience.
Navigation links are the signposts of your portal, guiding your visitors to various pages and sections. They're essential in providing a smooth, user-friendly experience. Typically, these links are placed in prominent areas like the header, footer, or sidebar, ensuring easy accessibility.
Before we dive in, make sure you're logged into your Pory workspace and have selected the portal you're working on. Also, prepare the list of pages or external URLs you want to link to.
In the editor, click on Add Header.
Select the Navigation tab. This is where you can input your link details.
Create your Link: Type in the navigation title of the link as you want it to appear in your portal and select a page or enter a website URL.
Repeat the process until you have all your links created.
Publish Changes and preview your portal to make sure everything is okay!
