Editing the links in your menus (link lists)

To edit the individual links in a particular menu (known as a link list) follow the instructions below.

1. Select 'website' from the left menu and then 'link lists'.

2. You can identify the link list you want to edit by the name (we also show you a preview of the links in it)

Click the link list you want to edit.

If you aren't sure which link list you need to edit or don't think one has been created for the set of links you want to change, then please contact us.

3. A page will then load with the link list links for you to edit.

At the top of the page are the link list details

Link List ID
This is the unique ID of the link list and is for the our internal purposes.

Link List Position
This is the position of the link list on your website. You can change this text, but we recommend that you don't. Please note that changing this text will not change the actual position of the link list on your website. It's just for information purposes.

Link List Title
If the title of the link list is blank, please do not change it. Inserting a title could adversely affect the design of your website.

4. The next section is where you can edit the actual links in the list.

You'll see that each link is in a different row.
