  • Go to newspage- creates a menu element which after clicking transfers users to a certain newspage on your website.

  • Website address - creates a menu element which after clicking transfers users to a website of your choice. Type URL address in the "Website address" section and choose whether it should open in a new browser window.  

  • More - creates a customized menu element:

    • Telephone - runs default calling application like Skype on users' computer or  automatically  dials  a mobile phone number  of your choice on users' phone.
    • E-mail - opens default mailbox application like Mailbox (Windows 10) on users computer or Gmail on users mobile phone and automatically puts a recipient e-mail address of your choice.
