Web Tips

Side Navigation

  • Edit file
  • To add a sublist (intent) item, go to the code and change the <li> tag to <li class="sub-sub-nav"> 
  • To hide a list item, go to the code and change the <li> tag to <li class="ou-no-subnav">.
  • You can't add more than one class to the "<li>" tags. So either one or the other.  
  • You can add the "sub-sub-nav" class to the anchor tag if you need to both hide a sub-navigation, and indent the link.
  • Be careful. Longer side navigation links will do weird things with text wrapping. 


  • Avoid tables where possible. Otherwise, you need to code it for accessibility and mobile-friendly design.
  • If you must, below is the code to make sure there are labels to correspond with the data. Italicized <th> tag can be customized. 

<table class="default-table">
<th scope="col">Name</th>
<th scope="col">Email</th>
<th scope="col">Office, Phone</th>
