Hello Comfort

Hmmm.. There are a few things running through my mind here. Please bear with me!

1. If you have a vertical navigation, it is not possible to really add content underneath your default menu. Furthermore, we do not have a blog roll feature that you can add just to a normal webpage.

What you could do is manually create your own set of links which would then act as your blog roll.

For information on how to create links, please take a look at this tutorial: Creating Links

If you really wish to have your "blog roll" underneath your vertical menu, then it may be better to create your own custom menu. For more information on how to create your own custom menu, please click here.

2. If you have a blog page, then we do have a blog roll feature that you can incorporate.

Here's how:

1. On your blog page, go to your sidebar. Under "Blogging", drag and drop "Blog Roll" onto your page.
2. A dialogue box will open up. Add the URLs of the blogs you want to display on your page.
3. Click "OK".
4. Save your work and republish your site to see your blog roll on your published site.

I know that I just gave out a lot of information. Please don't hesitate to ask for further clarification if needed.

Thanks, I will try to create link. However, I dont see "Choose a Link" or "Insert Link"
under Widgets. Someone said it looks like a green tree with a pict frame around it.
I dont see anything like that.

Comfort, have you solved this yet? I'm not sure I know the answer to your question. The "insert link" button is on the Edit bar, at the top of your Sitebuilder screen. It's the 10th one over from the left, and looks like a few links of a chain.

Hello Comfort,

I think you might be referring to creating an image link. The green tree in a picture frame is on the Edit Toolbar and used for inserting an image into a Text Widget. If you want to create an image link, you need to use the Picture Widget. If you add an image using the Picture Widget, click on the picture, then click on the "Properties" tab, you will see a button labeled "Choose a Link".



Please let me know if you have any trouble with this.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

You know what guys, I dont have an Edit Toolbar. That's why I was a bit
confused when the previous poster mentioned 'links' was the 10th button
from the left. I dont have that toolbar. I just have the line that starts with
Change Style Change Layout....

Also, when I click on any widget, all I see are 4 arrows when I hover the
cursor over that link. If I click on it nothing happens.

Hi Comfort - the Edit Toolbar appears when you have clicked inside a Text Widget that you have added to your page. If you're not editing or adding text, then the toolbar is not visible.
