Managing the User Dropdown Menu

Whether on desktop or mobile there is a consistent dropdown button on the top right. This is accessed by clicking on the users name. From here they can see their dashboard, their profile, their preferences and log out of the platform.

By default your platform will have the menu entries seen in the image above. You are able to add other items to the menu by providing the name and the link.

Handy Tip

This menu is recognised across many websites as the 'user menu', as such the items should relate to the user or their account

You can manage what appears here from the Site Administration section, by going to Appearance and then Theme settings. There is a form labelled ' User menu items' and it is here which you want to change. Each entry creates a new menu item.

Example

If you wanted to add "Learning History" to link to Transcript you would add the line entry

Learning History|/report/roadmaptranscript/|grades

Each line is separated by pipe characters and consists of 1) The title text you wish to display, 2) the link (eg: /my/ rather than demo.charitylearning.org/my/), and 3) an icon either as a pix icon Dividers can be used by adding a line of one or more # characters where desired.
