4.3 Menu Scroll To Section

When creating content for your website, you’ll need to organize your content into sections. This is so you can reference each section in your menu. Your menu will serve as a way for quickly scroll to a section you’d like to view. For example, clicking the About menu item will automatically scroll the page to the About section.

Please read below for detailed instructions on how to set up a one page smooth scroll navigation menu.

  3. In the left sidebar, expand the “Custom Links” tab.
  4. In the “URL” field, enter your website home address and the section ID you’ve assigned to a section on your page. For example, if this menu item links to your About us section, then it would be http://www.your-website.com/#about-us. Please note that you have to enter it with a hashtag (#) in order to scroll to the section properly.
