Editor : Navigation Element Overview

Andrew B

This article will cover information on the Navigation element. The Navigation element is one of the General-type elements in the page editor.

This element can be found in the Elements menu by mousing over a current element on the page and clicking on the orange Add Element button. You can scroll through the menu to locate it, click on the General Element Group or type Navigation in the Search elements Field.

 

Also clicking on and holding the element is a method that can be used to drag it into the desired position.

 


Navigation Element Menu

Move

Clicking and holding the move icon will allow the element to be dragged to a new location on the page.

 

Element Name

This is the name of the currently selected element. The name given will be the default name of the element. The name can be changed in the CSS info of the Coding menu.

 

Settings

Clicking on this gear icon will open the individual settings of the element. Each element has specific settings based on its functions. Please check the Settings section below for further information.

 

Clone

The clone icon will duplicate the currently selected element and place it below the current element.

 

Coding

Custom CSS can help extend the design of each section on the page to meet specific needs both visually and functionally. As the code requires, one can add coding to one of three areas: CSS, Header, or Footer.

 

The CSS info for the element is on the right of the CSS window. The title of the element can be changed in the title field to allow for easier identification. Due to the many different styles and uses of custom coding, ClickFunnels' Support Agents will not troubleshoot specific codes. Instead, submit a request for help in the Coding section of our Community, or reach out to the code provider for support.

 

Trash

Clicking on the trash icon will delete the element from the editor.
