Navigation allows you to add a table of contents to a Qwilr Page, letting your clients jump between sections with ease and see the structure of the document you've set up.

Enabling Navigation

Navigation is enabled on a per page basis. When you want to enable navigation you can do so from any block. Click the edit icon and expand the Navigation section. Then click Configure Navigation.

You'll then be prompted to enable the navigation feature.

Navigation Settings

Once navigation is enabled you'll be able to choose where the menu for the navigation appears. It can be either on the left side of the screen or dropping down from the top.

You can also choose whether or not you wish to display your company's name and email address. If you choose to display it, it will display at the bottom of your navigation. This is taken directly from your account settings.

Once enabled, the navigation will appear hidden behind a menu icon that your clients will click to expand or hide.

Naming Sections

For each block you'll be able to set the section name. By default we'll pull in the text from your heading, but if you want to set your own section name there are two ways. First, within the block settings you'll see a field called Block Label that you can fill in.

Alternatively, along the side of your screen you'll see your navigation and there is a pencil icon that you can click to change the name of each navigation item.

Hiding Blocks

If you have a block that you don't want to show in your navigation, you can choose to hide it. This is great for Splash blocks or similar. You'll do this within the individual block navigation settings, or within the whole project navigation setting. Check the box that says Hide this block from the navigation menu?

Once a block has been hidden you'll see it crossed out in your menu while editing or you can choose to hide excluded blocks.

Disabling Navigation

If you want to remove the navigation page, head back to the navigation settings via a block menu. From there choose the Don't Use Navigation option.
