The previous guide in our adding navigation to Concrete5 series covered adding auto-nav. In this tutorial we will guide you through adding the Auto-Nav option in Concrete 5. This can assist visitors in navigating your website, by creating links for easily moving between pages.

    add content2
  3. Now, highlight and click the area you would like to add content to, and select add block from the list.

  4. On the add block menu select Auto-Nav, this will bring up the add video player menu.
