My site www.wildacreswriters.com advertises in different media that we have 3 totally free scholarships. We a lot of emails saying that the person went to the site and could not find any reference to ‘scholarships’. It is in the navigation bar on the master page but apparently a lot of people miss it. Is there an action to make it stand out in some way? Flashing, rotating, whatever. Any Help?
I am assuming that you didn’t mean for that particular page to work that way as you are getting a new page in addition to the ones that are behind it - which will confuse/annoy your visitors.
If you have the same navigation menu on your Master then select the link there and Edit>Hyperlink
When the dialogue opens in the top section you will see a list of pages in your site - under that there are sections for Title and Target
The Target one has a dropdown selector - in your case I suspect that ‘_blank’ has been chosen. This will mean the page will open in a new window. Delete the text in there so that there is nothing then OK the dialogue and you are done.
If you want ‘Scholarships’ to stand out I would put it in a box.
Move the video and the ‘Word from the Director’ over to the left, and put the Scholarships info in a white box in a sidebar on the right. The boxes for ‘Writers retreat’ and ‘Writers Workshop’ could then go underneath, giving you a nice vertical sidebar with 3 different things in it.
The link in the Navigation Bar can stay, and you could make the new box link to the scholarships page too. There’s no rule saying you can’t have several different items pointing at the same link.
