  • Customizable links
  • Personal tools (these links cannot be edited)

Customizing the sidebar

Initially, the customizable links show the following widgets:

  • Pages visited (widget PAGESVISITED)
  • My edits (widget YOUREDITS)

These widgets can be removed individually.

To customize the content of the user menu:

  1. Click on your user profile image.
  2. Click Edit user menu.

To add a new menu header using the menu editor:

  1. Click Add new element to create a new menu header.

Note:If you use the parser function {{#ifingroup:... to display navigation elements in the source code, you must always edit the main navigation in the source code. In visual editing mode, saving removes any parser function or semantic queries.

Source edit mode

To add new links:

  1. Change to source editing mode.
  2. Create one or more navigation links (with or without section heading). The following example shows a link to the page "Company" with the label "Our company" and an external link to the BlueSpice website with the label "Website". The links are grouped together under the section heading "Quicklinks":
    **Company|Our company
  3. Save the page. The links are now shown in the main navigation.

Link labels may collide with system messages. If this is the case, simply append the HTML-code for an empty space to the description:
