Is it possible to have the menu bar at the top and bottom of the page? Other websites often have a second navigation bar at the bottom with pages such as terms and conditions on.

The template you choose dictates the placement of your navigation. I don't recall a template with two navigation bars, but you can create a second navigation bar yourself to place at the bottom of each of your page. Here's how I did it:

1. Drop a Text Widget onto your page where you want the navigation bar located.

2. Make a horizontal list of the pages you would like on the navigation bar; put at least 3-4 spaces between each individual page name.

3. Link each of the individual page names to their page using the Inset Link icon on the Edit Menu.

4. While your cursor is still in the Text Widget, click the Edit HTML Icon.

5. Copy and paste the HTML to a text editor like Notepad and save it. Putting the code in Notepad is optional, but allows for easy access to the code for later use; plus copy and pasting from Word is messy, as Word will insert a bunch of formatting code.

6. Every time you create a new page and want it to have the second/bottom navigation, drop in an HTML widget on the bottom of the page, then copy and past in the code from the file you saved. If you make sure to drop in the widget in the same place each time as well as use the same code, your second navigation bar will look exactly the same from page to page.

Here's an example on my site, scroll to the very bottom: E-Learn About.

Just an idea! Good luck,

Another way is :

1- Create your navigation bar as you like using text links or even picture links. Take all the time you want here (placing it on other pages is going to be easy).

2- Then save and preview the page

3- Open another page to which you want to add the navigation.

4- Insert a simple text widget where you want to have the same navigation bar.

5- Go to the preview page and then using the mouse to highlight exactly the navigation bar you created copy it.

6- Now simple paste this into the text widget directly.

You will get all your text and picture (yes even picture!) links in the text widget!

So you can repeat this easy copy paste process for the rest of your pages.

Check my site where I've used this technique :

Hope this is useful.

The Firming style and the Begeodan styles have both veritical and horizontal menus, if you don't want to take the DIY approach.
