Turn On/Off the Registration Link

With Extend, you can create restricted areas on your Web site that are only available to member users or staff members. These areas are called private channels. You can create three types of private channels:

  • Member channels
  • Staff channels
  • Access ACS channels

Member channels are only available to registered users. Staff channels are only available to staff members. Depending on the options you select, you can control who can register and sign-in to your Web site.

If you select the Show Register Link option, your Web site visitors can register with your site and sign in to view member channels. By default, the option is disabled.

 To enable the register link
  1. Point to Account, then click Site Profile.
  2. Under Site Options, select the Show Register Link option.
  3. Click Save.

Enable Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs can be a useful navigation tool for your Web site visitors. They provide a trail from the home page to the page the user is currently viewing and help visitors find their way back to the home page. If you choose to display breadcrumbs on your Web site, they display on all pages except the home page and content pages.

By default, the Breadcrumbs option is selected.

Every Extend web site has a built-in search feature that lets visitors find information on your web site. In addition, you let your visitors search your entire network. This is especially useful if your organization uses Network Extend or is part of a community. By default, the Search This Network option is disabled.

 To turn on the network search
  1. Point to Account, then click Site Profile.
  2. Under Site Options, select Search the Network.
