Frequently Asked Questions

How do I remove entries from my site's navigation?

There are three different ways to remove a link in your navigation, depending on what you are linking.


Method 1: External link

1. From any page you own, access the Properties and Actions menu and select "My Pages".  If you have a large number of pages, you may wish to begin on a specific page that shows a link to the document in question, and change the dropdown "Subsite Scope" to be "Current Subsite Only".

2. Display the list of your links by clicking on the + to the left of "My External Documents".

3. Click the pencil to the right of the link title and select "Custom Metadata" from the menu.  If this window does not appear, or you get an error message, click the Properties and Actions icon and select "Standard Metadata", then click the Next button.  Custom Metadata will then be displayed.

4. Select the Skidmore_Nav tab.

5. Turn off the "Include in Nav" checkbox, and then click "Finish".

(You could also choose to delete the link entirely, by putting a checkmark in the box in front of the link title, scrolling down, and clicking Delete.)

Method 2: PDF file or other document

1. From any page you own, access the Properties and Actions menu and select "My Pages".  If you have a large number of pages, you may wish to begin on a specific page that shows a link to the document in question, and change the dropdown "Subsite Scope" to be "Current Subsite Only".

2. Display the list of your uploaded documents by clicking on the + to the left of "My Uploaded Documents". 

3. Check the box for each item to be deleted.  Warning: deletion is permanent!

4. When you have picked the pages to be deleted, click the "Delete Selected Pages" button. The system will ask for confirmation.

5. Click "OK".

If you created or own the page:

1. From any page you own, access the Properties and Actions menu and select "My Pages".  If you have a large number of pages, you may wish to begin on a specific page that shows a link to the document in question, and change the dropdown "Subsite Scope" to be "Current Subsite Only".

2. Display the list of your pages by clicking on the + to the left of "My Pages" in the popup.

3. Click the pencil to the right of the page title and select "Custom Metadata" from the menu.  If this window does not appear, or you get an error message, click the Properties and Actions icon and select "Standard Metadata", then click the Next button.  Custom Metadata will then be displayed.
