It's actually not as complicated as it looks like.

The Letters are on a anchor or page basis.

You would create a page titled, "A" and that's where you would list all your "A" items and same thing for "B', etc.

You can also put ALL items on the same page and create an anchor... by clicking on "B" it will take them down the page to the "B" items. For more on anchors, please visit... http://tipsandtricks.synthasite.com/A...

Hello tanveerahmed2k8

You will need to also create subpages to achieve this effect.

You can avoid having too many pages in your main menu by dividing your site up in to categories and creating sub-pages. Here is a quick overview on how to do this:

1. Create the pages you need. When you create the page untick the "show in navigation" box so that these pages won't be automatically added into your main navigation menu.

2. Now that you have your content, you need to link it all up. You can create the links using the text editor widget.
- drag a text widget onto your page and click to edit it.
- Type the text which you want to be the link to the sub-page.
- Highlight the text, and from the text editor tool bar, click the link button (10th from the left next to the image button).
- Click on the "..." button next to "page". It should give you a list of all the pages you have just created.
- Choose the relevant page and click "OK" and you will have a link to this page.

If you didn't untick the "show in navigation" box and would like to take them out of the menu, simply click on "Edit menu" and drag-and-drop the pages you don't want in the menu into the panel on the right hand side. Do the opposite to include them in the menu again.

For detailed instructions and a working example, please click on the following link: Creating Subpages.

For step #2 - this is where you can add your own style of navigation instead of using word text for links. For example:

I 1 I 2 I 3 I 4 I - where each number would link up to a subpage.

I hope that helps you to get started :) Please let us know if you have further questions.
