Building A Website: Part 2
Setting Up The Navigation Bar
Now that our homepage is set up and looking okay. The next thing we want to do is create our navigation bars. We don’t have all of the content that we will want on them yet, but we will add that as we go. We can still create the ones we will need, which are an authenticated and unauthenticated navigation.
Creating Unauthenticated Navigation
The first nav bar we will want is the navigation that any user who visits our site will see. They aren’t logged in, they are just another user. To create our navigation, move to the menus section in the appearance tab.
Now go ahead and give the navigation bar the name ‘Main Nav (unauthenticated) and press create.
Add the homepage to the menu as well as a custom link with our homepage url and our courses anchor. Call it ‘View Courses’. After that, check the box to make this our Main Navigation.
Duplicate the process for another navigation called ‘Main Nav (authenticated) except don’t check it as the main nav and we are all set. We won’t use the authenticated nav until we customize our header, but now when you visit any page you will see our main nav.
