See below for submenu colour standards.

 

Local 333 Units - Fixed SideBar Submenu

 

The menu/navigator on the right (a "fixed sidebar menu") uses embedded HTML (including JavaScript for style management). WIX sees this as an Embedded Widget.

The advantage of this menu over a simple text menu is much better presentation.  The disadvantage is that it takes slightly better technical knowledge to update the menu.

For both types of submenus, adding/removing pages (or changing a page's URL) requires updating the submenu links in one of the subpages, then copy-pasting from that page into all the destination pages that use the same submenu -- removing/replacing the old submenu in the process.

Before copying-and-pasting as noted above:

Changing the pages in this type of submenu requires updating the embedded code.  Click on the menu, then click "Edit Code".  You'll see a section near the bottom of the code <div class="sidenav">.  Within the <div> you will see one line for each linked sub page.  One of the subpages will likely be self-reference to the page that you are looking at.  In that case the href tag might have been removed, and a style added for color and background-color.  This is optional, different for each submenu on a page-by-page basis so that the reader can tell by looking at the menu which subpage they are on.

Notes for Future:
  • It would be good to find a way to place the <style> of the JavaScript in Widget into WIX as a common header for all pages.  Unfortunately, WIX does not natively support this at the time of writing (2021-August).

  • I'm not happy that the submenu pages must be defined absolutely (versus referentially, without having to specify the domain name).  So far, I haven't found a way around this in WIX that's practical -- let alone allowing the submenus to be maintained by someone who's comfortable poking around simple code (2021-August by DougB).
