Main Navigation

Main Navigation (sometimes called Primary Navigation or Top Navigation) is the main menu of your site. In most templates, Main Navigation appears at the top of every page and has links to your most important pages. To make your site easy to navigate, Main Navigation is the best place to put the pages you expect visitors will need the most.

On mobile devices and smaller browsers, Main Navigation links may collapse behind Menu links or ☰ icons to save space.

Secondary and Footer Navigation

Secondary and Footer Navigation create additional menus separate from the Main Navigation. Use these sections for pages visitors can navigate to but aren't the key focus of your site, like your terms and policies.

Not Linked

Pages in Not Linked don't appear in your site's navigation. Visitors can access these pages by way of direct URLs unless you disable or password-protect them. Not Linked is a great place to store in-progress pages or content that doesn't need to go in a navigation menu.
