The UMW theme has an option of creating a top bar for your navigation. You can use the top bar in one of two ways:
Top Bar Automatically Populated by Top-Level Pages
Currently, most sites are set to use the sidebar to populate automatically. This would switch that to the top bar.
- Advantages: No manual updating
- Disadvantages: Must limit number and size of primary links so that top bar will fit the width. If you have a long sidebar of wordy links, this is not for you.
Top Bar Manually Populated by a Custom Menu
This method will put a custom menu in your top bar.
- Advantages: Greater control over the top bar menu. Greater flexibility in navigation
- Disadvantages: Requires manual update, so, if you add a page, you need to be mindful of adding a link to it in the top bar.
