  6. Complete the fields in the Navigation Heading window. The title will appear in the navigation. The URL will be the link to an external site or you can link to another page within your site. If linking to an external site (which we don’t recommend in the global navigation) be sure to select the check box for Open Link in New Window. The description will appear when the mouse hovers over the link. It is recommended you leave the audience field blank so all site users can see the link. Select OK when done.
