Details[edit]

Details Tab[edit]

For more information please see Menu Item Manager: Details Tab

Required Settings[edit]

  • Menu Title. The title that will display for this menu item.
  • Menu Item Type. The Menu Item Type selected when this menu item was created. This can be one of the core menu item types or a menu item type provided by an installed extension.
  • Menu. Shows which menu the menu item will appear in.
  • URL. Field to enter a URL (web page address). Generally, it is a good idea to always add http:// or https:// when providing a URL. There is a Auto add function to prefix a URL with http:// unless it detects the prefix in the URL. NOTE - Use the relative path to a web page address on Joomla installation. If your Joomla! website is http://www.example.com, then use /html_docs/example.html omitting http://www.example.com and make sure the 'Auto add' function is disabled.

  • Auto Height. Automatically set height to height of external page. Note: This will only work if the external page is on the same domain. For example, http://www.example.com the external html must be in the example.com root file structure. Sub domains will not work, as a sub domain is considered a separate domain.
