Side Nav Example

 

To edit a page's navigation, follow these steps:

 

1. Navigate to the page's directory inside OU Campus.

Most pages in OU Campus are index.pcf files located within directories. All directories have an _sidenav.inc file. This is where side navigation data is stored. 
Note: Even if a page has a blank side nav, there will still be sidenav file..

Click on the _sidenav.inc file.

2. Edit the navigation. 

From here, you can use the WYSIWYG editor to add and edit the content of the side navigation. Note that you can only preview a standalone version of the navigation.
