    • If you are in the page editor within your HubSpot account, click the Settings tab. Click Advanced options. Under the Template section, click the name of your template. If the template is being used by other live pages, you'll need to choose to edit this layout anyway or make a copy instead.
  • Access your advanced menu module:
    • If your advanced menu is not part of a global group, click the module to access the module's options in the inspector pane on the right.

In the inspector pane on the right, click the More dropdown menu and select Edit global group. You will be brought to a new tab in the design manager where you can make changes to individual modules in your global group. Click the Advanced menu module. Please note that if your global group is used in multiple templates, changes made here will apply to all of them.
  • In the inspector pane on the right, scroll down to the Default Content section and make changes to your advanced menu module as needed.
    • Menu: use this dropdown menu to select the advanced menu that will be used in this module. If you need to make edits to the items in your menu, make note of which menu is being used here and follow the instructions below to make changes to the menu. 
    • Advanced menu type: use this dropdown menu to customize which portion of your advanced menu will be displayed. You can choose to use a static menu, a menu that is dynamic by section, a menu that is dynamic by page, or a breadcrumb path menu. 
    • Max levels: use this dropdown menu to set a maximum number of menu tree children that can be expanded in the menu.
