Creating Menus for the Contao CMS consists of manipulating or creating the Site Structure. The Site Structure is the option in the the Contao Back end Layout Module that lets you manage the website structure by adding/editing/deleting items in a tree-style view. The following article will explain how to add menus within the site structure using the Contao CMS back end interface.
Note that the instructions below are using the default Theme that comes with the Contao CMS. Adding menus starts with creating site structures.
|Regular page||Normal website page|
|Website root||Primary domain for website|
|Internal redirect||Re-directs to a location within the website|
|External redirect||Re-directs to a location outside of the website|
|403 Access denied||Error page for access denied attempts|
|404 Page not found||Error page for page not found errors|
It is important to remember that we are modifying the existing default Contao demo website and therefore, the default Contao theme. This gives us a baseline in which to understand how to manipulate and create the menu and site structure that Contao provides. The following screenshots show you an example of what you will see when you add/modify a portion of the site structure and how it will appear in the front end:

Front end appearance after menu change
As you can see, the Administrators menu item is above the HOME section which matches the positioning of the menu item within the back end interface. The appearance of the menu, its positioning and limits are all governed by the theme used with the CMS. If you intend to use this theme or any other Contao theme, you will need to stay within the limits of the theme's formatting in order to avoid possible issues such as overlapping menus or missing elements. Keep close watch over the appearance of the front end by reviewing its appearance when you make changes to menu structures or other visible sections of the website.
