5.2.6 Menus

In order to configure the navigation menu of the Goobi viewer, the CMS offers the option of defining the menu items and creating submenus.

The selection is divided into two columns. In the right column Available items the available menu items are listed and in the column Menu structure the displayed menu items are listed.
