Disclaimer: Editing existing navigation templates requires web development experience and a working knowledge of C#, ASP.Net, HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

Sitefinity also allows you to edit existing navigation templates (including the aforementioned pre-built options). Editing existing navigation templates allows you to customize the markup and the functionality of your navigation. Even if you have web development experience, it may be prudent to either save a local copy of the template you wish to edit or simply create a new template and copy and paste your pre-existing code.

1. Click edit on the top right corner of your navigation widget to bring up the menu shown below.

2. Select the widget template you would like to use. A new option above “Create new template” should appear reading “Edit selected template”. Click “Edit selected template”.

Make the necessary changes to your template and click “Save changes”.

And there you have it! Now that you know how to customize your navigation widget, you (or your development team) can tailor your navigation to your site. While the out-of-the-box options provided by Sitefinity can be a great solution, editing or creating your own templates allows you to more easily customize the look, feel, and functionality of your site’s navigation.
