UCL Blogs



Blog navigation

There are three ways to set up your left hand menu using the UCL branding themes:

  1. If you’d like to have pages on your blog (e.g. ‘About’, etc.), simply create these pages in WordPress;
    1. once they’re published, go to the WordPress Widgets page – in the admin interface, click Appearence->Widgets
    2. drag the ‘Pages’ widget into sidebar 1.
      your pages will now appear in the left-hand column.
  2. If you’d like a menu containing links to other pages outside of your blog (e.g. if you wanted to mimic the menu from your departmental website), create new links
    – in the admin interface, click Links->Add New –

    1. If it isn’t there already, add a new category entitled ‘left-hand-menu’.
      These links will now appear in the left hand side. The links appear in the order of the ‘rating’ field, which you can change when you edit a link.
  3. Alternatively, you can simply create a left hand menu using HTML. Just add a ‘text’ widget into sidebar 1, and add the suitable code.
