    Purpose and use

    Group of Links options and form fields

    1. Header Text: Give the Group of Links page element a Title (header text)

    2. Style as Buttons: You can choose if you'd like this Group of Links to appear as a button cloud, instead of the standard list menu

    3. Predefined Menu: You can choose to populate your Group of Links with a predefined menu. Simply check the box for this option and then select one of your predefined menus that you've already created. To create a menu, see WiscWeb - Creating and Editing a Menu. This would allow you to create a single menu, and then use that menu repeatedly over several pages or even the entire site.

    4. Links Group: Each link in Group of Links menu has the following options:

      • Title: Give the link a title. This is the text that will appear as a hyperlink on your page

        • External Link: Link to an external URL. You can type or paste in the URL you want this link to go to.
