"Menus" in Mambo are groups of navigational links to sections, categories, content items, components or external pages. These links are called 'Menu Items'.
Each menu must have an identification name which is only used internally by Mambo. A menu only becomes visible on a site if it has a published mod_mainmenu module which references it. A menu may have multiple mod_mainmmenu modules referencing it.
New: Click this icon to create a new Menu. You will access the "Menu Details" window. Type a Menu Name. This is the identification name used by Mambo to identify this menu within the code. It must be unique. It is recommended to use no spaces within this name. For example, in the core Mambo the User Menu's Menu Name is "usermenu" and the Main Menu's Menu Name is "mainmenu".
Next: Type the Module Title. This is the name given to the new mod_mainmenu module which is automatically created when you save this menu. It is also the Name of the menu as it will appear on the page if you choose to publish it. This may be changed in the future when editing the module. In the example described above, these are "User Menu" and "Main Menu". Click on the 'Save" icon. Your new menu appears in the Menu Manager list.
Edit: Click the radio button next to the Menu Name you want to edit. Then, click on the "Edit" icon which will take you to the Editing page.
Copy: Click the radio button next to the Menu Name you want to copy. Then, click the "Copy" icon in the toolbar. This will duplicate the menu. You may copy any of your menus. Copying will create a new Menu Name, containing the same Menu Items as the menu copied, associated to a new Menu Module.
A "Copy Page" will display, with the same choices as in Create New Menu. It will also state the name of the Menu being copied and a list of the Menu Items associated to the menu being copied. Fill in the fields as in the "Create New Menu" screen.
NOTE: Deleted Menus cannot be recovered from the Trash Manager!
The headings give information on the following functions :
Menu Name: Click on the name to edit it. This name may be the one that is given to the menu by default or the name you gave to that menu.
Menu Items: Click on the "Edit" icon in this column to add or edit Menu Items associated with a menu. Or alternatively go to "Menu->the-menu-you-choose-to-edit". A "Menu Manager [the-menu-you-choose-to-edit]" window will appear with a list of all Menu Items associated to this Menu.
#Published: This is the number of Menu Items published.
#Unpublished: This is the number of Menu Items unpublished.
#Trash: This is the number of Menu Items in the Trash Manager.
#Modules: This is the number of menu modules associated to the Menu Name.
