These navigation menus can support any number of subsections.
All of our themes come with a several vertical navigation menu options built in, which you can display on the Category, Section and Article pages. Because they’re built using our micro-templating system, you can also add them anywhere else in your help center.
Using theme settings
You can display vertical navigation menus in the sidebar of the Category, Section and Articles pages using the Sidebar setting associated with each of those pages.
Our themes offer several built-in styles, typically including menus that display a combination of categories, sections and articles in responsive layouts. Each page is configured independently, providing a tremendous amount of flexibility.
To replace an existing vertical navigation menu in the Category, Section and/or Article sidebars with a custom pattern:
Select “Custom template” from the Sidebar setting of the page you’re updating.
Copy-and-paste your selected pattern micro-template into the bottom of the footer.hbs template.
Vertical navigation menus are powered by our Navigation extension and can therefore be used anywhere in the help center.
To display vertical navigation menus outside of the Category, Section and/or Article page sidebars:
Copy the HTML hook below into the position where you’d like the vertical navigation to appear.
