Navigation

The site template provides global navigation to SCU Web site resources (map, search) and main content categories (undergraduate, centers, alumni). The template also provides a dynamically constructed navigation element in the breadcrumb trail, showing the location in a sub-site for the currently displayed page.

Your site's primary navigation must include links to the main content areas of your site. From the linked page, or through a pop-up menu navigation system, visitors should be able to reach any other page within your site. For large, complex sites, it may be necessary to create additional templates with primary navigation focused on a specific section of the site.
