Description

The Return to Index Navigation Object is used within a Content Layout of fulltext pages. It creates a link "Back to" the Section's index page, and if the Target option is specified, then the link opens in a new window by that name.

How to create a Return to Index object

To create this object, go to Assets > Navigation and click Create New Navigation and select Return to Index.

After completing the standard options used for all types of Navigation Objects, fill in each of the following, where relevant:

ItemDescription
Link text The text that is used for the link, for example, "Back to" or "Return to listing".
Append section name to link text Checkbox to add the Section's name to the link text. For example: "Back to News", where "News" is the name of the listing page.
Link target attribute

Enter either:

  • Left blank: the link opens in the current window
  • _self: opens in the same window
  • _blank: opens in a new window
Scroll to content within the page Checkbox for the link to automatically jump down the listing page to the content item that was being viewed. For example, if the user was reading the fulltext of the fourth news item in the Section when clicking the link to return to the listing page, the user would be taken to the listing page but would jump down in the listing to the fourth news item.

Review your entries and selections, if you are satisfied with your entries, click Next to generate the object.

Once generated, highlight the T4 Tag Embed Code, copy to your clipboard (Ctrl+C) and paste into a fulltext Content Layout. This object does not work in a Page Layout or within a Content Item.
