Adding or deleting links on the course navigation bars (navbars)

How can an instructor add or remove tool links in the course navigation bar?

1.  Click [Edit Course]
2.  Click [Navigation]

IF YOU SEE BOTH the "Course Default" PLUS another navbar title (blue-link) under the heading "Navbars," click the blue link and skip to steps 7-15 below.

IF YOU SEE ONLY THE "Course Default" navigation bar under the heading "Navbars," do the following:

3.     Click the [Copy Course Default] button in the navbar list, to the right (icon looks like 2 pieces of paper)
4.     In the "Confirmation" pop-up window, click [Yes]
5.     Find the "Copy of Course Default" navbar in the list and click on the name to edit
6.     On the Properties tab, rename your navbar if you wish, to make it easier to select later

7.     Click the [Links] tab

8a.   Find the link you wish to remove from the navbar and click the "down" arrow beside it, then click [Remove from navbar] and confirm in the popup window


8b.   Find the area of the navbar where you wish to add a link and click [Add Links] and follow prompts.  (NOTE: "Add Links" only works for linking to places within the D2L course site.  To add an EXTERNAL link, please see  http://d2ltipsandtricks.blogspot.com/2010/08/editing-nav-bar-adding-external-link.html)

9.     Repeat for other links as desired

10.   Click [Navbars] at the top of the page to return to the Navbar list
11.   Under "Active Navbar," click [Change]
12.   In the drop-down menu, select [the name of your new navbar]
13.   Click [Apply]
14.   In the "Confirmation" pop-up window, click [Set Active]
