 +===== Create a Page Hierarchy of Parents and Children =====
 +In Page Options you can choose a '​Parent'​ to mark a page as the '​Child'​ of another. This has the effect of giving the page a url of​parent/​child but doesn'​t alter the navigation menu links. GS supports any number of levels of url hierarchy, but it's native menu function only displays a single, simple list of links.
 +===== Insert Navigation Links into the Page Template =====
 +The default ''​get_navigation()''​ template tag creates a simple, single series of links to pages marked for inclusion in the menu arranged in order as ''<​li>''​ elements. To generate nested lists (eg for dropdown menus) or to separate different levels for different menus or to display page titles instead of the specified menu text a plugin is used. [[http://​​extend/​plugin/​i18n/​69/​|I18N]] is the most popular plugin or there are more simple plugins also in extend. Advanced users can create their own custom menu functions.
