Overview of the Changes

Previously, to create a menu on the Web Platform page, you needed to use the menu embed component and then make several configuration changes to have the menu display correctly. This was not a user-friendly way to create menus and that is no longer the case. You are able to add a menu to a Web Platform page by simply adding the appropriate section. The Web Platform will take care of the rest. 

When the Changes will Occur

This new functionality will be available as soon as the Web Platform 2.0 updates are applied to your site.  

What’s Changing

  1. You will no longer be able to add a menu from the menu embed component.  
  2. You can now create a menu by using the “Two Column Menu [1:2]” section.
