Working with Menus

Showing and hiding menus - Publishing and Unpublishing

Menu items can be published or unpublished to show or hide them. For example, you could create a menu item and then have it unpublished until you were ready to launch it.

To publish or unpublish a menu item:

  1. Log in to your website
  2. From the Menu menu, choose the appropriate menu to edit (normally Main Menu in Joomla 1.5 or mainmenu or bottommenu in Joomla 1.0)
  3. Click on the Publish icon for the appropriate menu item - a green tick is published, a red cross is unpublished
  4. This will toggle (switch) between published and unpublished as desired
  5. Press save
  6. Review it online to make sure it works
