Sidebar On-Page Navigation

On-page navigation will vary depending on where a page is in the content tree. The standard set-up is to display at most two levels of navigation on any page (the current page and its siblings nested under their parent). This means on-page navigation will update as you go deeper in the tree.

This theme gives you the ability to set a custom nav parent that will change the functionality of on-page navigation for that parent page and all it’s descendants (children to an infinite level). When a custom nav parent is set, on-page navigation will start at the custom nav parent and include all pages to the deepest level in that family.

Examples of each of these on-page navigation modes is outlined below.

Standard Mode

If the “Custom Nav Parent” field for all of these pages is blank, the on-page navigation will function as follows.
