Setting up Navigation Menus

At this point, you should have created all of your required pages for your site. You can have as many pages as you would like. However, it is recommended that if you have more than 5 (not including the privacy policy and terms of service), that you categorize them into dropdowns. We will show you how to do all of this, and set up the navigation bars in the header and footer. 

  • Go into your HubSpot settings. Under Tools, click on Website, then Navigation.

  • Click on the button that says Create  menu

  • Once you are done setting up your menu, click Publish.

There is a simple menu which should have the pages that you made in your navigation menu. 

Then under the footer copyright, there is a menu in which you will set up your Privacy Policy, Terms of Service, and Cookie Settings (optional).
