Add a Navigation block to your ActiveCampaign page


The "Navigation" block guides visitors around your landing page and website.

About the "Navigation" block

With this block, you can have page visitors jump to a section on your page, download a file, open a link, and more when the navigation item is clicked.

If you're using this block to have visitors download a file or print an image, note that the following file types are supported:

  • jpg
  • png
  • pdf

In addition, the maximum file size is 5mb.

Like other blocks in the page builder, the "Navigation" block is available in the right pane.

Once this block is added to your layout, you can adjust its size and add styling to it. You can add, edit, duplicate, and delete a "Navigation" component.

Add the "Navigation" block to your page

1. From the page editor, drag the "Navigation" block to your page layout.

2. "Home" will appear as the default navigation text. To change this text, double-click the text on the page layout. Type your new text over the default text. Note that you can use the modal toolbar that appears to add styling to your text. For example, you can make the text all-caps, underlined, italicized, bold, change the font size, and more.

3. To add additional items to your navigation bar, click the "+" button next to "Navigation Items" in the right pane. Once this button is clicked, a new navigation item will be added to the block in your layout.

4. Items added to the "Navigation" block do not have any actions by default. This means nothing will happen when they are clicked. To make something happen when a navigation item is clicked:

  • Click the block on your page layout once
  • The right pane will open and display all style and action items. Click the navigation item in the right pane that you want to add an action to.
  • A modal window will open with a dropdown field. Click the dropdown field then click the action you wish to apply to the navigation item. Actions you can choose from are: open link, jump to section, download file, print image, call phone, and send email

 Note that to use the "Jump to Section" option, you need to add an ID to the section that you want to jump to. 

5. When finished, click the checkmark button to save your work.

Style and edit the "Navigation" block

The "Navigation" block comes with the following edit and style options:
