I’m using RW with Foundry. I need to add links to my navigation, that link to a .pdf instead of a page. Any ideas? I have a blank page to use as a placeholder, but I can’t figure out how to make a sibling that will open a .pdf
An example of what I’m going for is the original site that I’m rewriting: http://kitsapphotographyguild.com The example is the way the Articles navigation item works.
I assume that you’re using the standard Navigation Bar stack. Using a stack like Navigation Bar Pro though allows you to manually curate your items, and would allow you to do what you’re looking to do. Have a look at the Navigation Bar Pro’s documentation page and watch through the tutorial videos: https://foundry.elixirgraphics.com/documentation/navigation-bar-pro/
I tried the Nav Bar Pro initially, but couldn’t figure out how to make sub-items so ended up with the plain nav bar that takes the page names, which I don’t like, but at least it worked. I’ve watched the “pro” video and read the documentation I found, but saw nothing about how to do a sub/child navigation item, just dropdown for the toggle. If I can figure this out, I’d like the .pdf to open in a new page also. As always, any assistance is appreciated.
Can I create links on the NavBar (non-pro) that aren’t to a page, but to a .pdf? As stated, I also wanted to open the .pdf in a new page. I’m not sure I like how restrictive this all is. I coded the original site, and it’s frustrating to not be able to just code a link. Thanks for your help.
I’d seen something about SiteLok, but hadn’t taken the time to research it or something I saw called Total CMS yet. I wanted to just get the initial site up first.
Currently we’re using Meetup for scheduling events (online for now) etc., but they have changed to the point where it isn’t working for the club anymore. The club site is probably the only thing I’ll use this for… unless I decide to take tighter control of my own site (JoEmerald.com). I’d rather be taking photos than posting them…
Thanks again. I’m not sure what I’d do without the quick and helpful responses of you and everyone who has helped me with this project.
My next “phase” is to turn it into a CMS so members can post their entries to the Monthly Challenge in a “Members Only” section. If I can make that work, and add a calendar of events, we can get rid of our Meetup site.
