I have been working really hard on my site in light of some really challenging obstacles involving organizing all the stuff I have to lod up to my site. I tried using custom menus but found that it didn't quite work out in my situation (unless someone can convince me otherwise :))

The only way I could get the links for the alphabet on the Bennett Archives page to work was to copy/paste on every page which is a real pain. Did the same for the Radio Shows Page. If there is an easier way, let me know.

I tried using the tutorial on sub pages and I think that for now it may be the best solution until Yola implements a much simpler and intuitive way of creating and modifying menus for your site.

The main pages I have been working on so far are the Bennett Archives and Radio Show Pages. My main goal is to make it as easy as possible to get around to the various sub pages and I think I have succeeded.

I am also really happy with the look and feel of the Interviews page. The Home and Playlists pages still need some work.

Hi Randy,

I think the sub pages functionality that you have implemented is wonderful and super intuitive. If we ever need a site that demonstrates the making of sub pages and how this can be useful when building a site, this would be a great site to showcase! Awesome work, keep it up!

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Wow! There's no way a custom menu would handle all this and look good. I think you've picked the best way to organize this. Superb!

Thanks Emmy,

One of the reasons I did this is because it was a learning exercise for me into the ins ands outs of how to use Yola. Even though I don't think this is the most efficient way of doing this, I am hoping that Yola is seriously looking at easy and user friendly ways to implement menu structures.

Thanks again for your comments. They are much appreciated !! :)

I will let you in on a secret. I carry around a "top 3" list of features that I talk to the Product team about every chance I get. This list is based on user feedback and needs. An easy way to organize pages and build menus and submenus is on my top 3! Which means I agree with you and rank this one very highly above a very very long list of feature requests. I understand why it has not been developed yet, but I think we all agree that it is needed!

Wow Randy! Very impressive indeed! You have done a fabulous job in really utilizing the submenu feature and presenting it in such a way that it easy to navigate and organized.

p.s. I'm sorry that the custom menu didn't quite work out the way you wanted it to.

Sanja and Monique,

Don't be orry because even though the menu thing didn't work out and I was somewhat frustrated, I just turned it around to be a positve learning experience that I can add to my arsenal of how to's. Learning is so much fun when you can break it down, and build it up again. Thanks!!

Monique,

That is fantastic news regarding menus. I was on Weebly yesterday and was looking at how they implement sub menus in a menu structure. It's simple and makes sense to not only the newcomer but everyone who needs to create two-three level sub menus easily. I will eagerly await as I am sure will many others to what Yola will do to make menus easy and fun to make. :) Keep up the great work!!
