Description

The layout and the (additional) content of Cyclos is completely customizable. In the "Menu items" you can create new links on the menu bar or in the vertical menu at the homepage. It is also possible to create groups, when you click on a group the menu expands and shows the links (menu items) that belong to that group.

Business rules

Menu items are attached to a configuration, if an admin can manage multiple configurations, it has to choice the configuration before the menu items are shown.

The menu items work hierarchical with the configurations. If a menu item is created in a higher (parent) configuration the lower (child) configurations will show this menu item too. It is however possible to create additional menu items in a lower (child) configuration.

Menu items can belong to a group. The label of the group will then be shown on the menu and when the menu is expanded the menu items that belong to that group will then be shown.
