Changing the position of your in-page menu

As in-page menus are floating menus, they are always visible to site visitors, no matter where they are on your page. You can easily change the position of the menu and its distance from the page's edges so it works with your layout.

To change your menu's position:

  1. Click the menu on your page.
  2. Click the Pinned icon .
  3. Select a new position from the square.
  4. (Optional) Drag the sliders to adjust the horizontal and vertical offset.
The 'Pin to Screen' panel in the Editor. The cursor is hovering over the vertical offset slider.
Don't want the in-page menu to float?
You can unpin the menu from the pinned settings panel. This means the menu stays in place and isn't visible when visitors scroll away from it.
