How to do it

  1. We created our page layout using DMXzone Bootstrap 3. Our website contains four sections - home, services, portfolio and testimonials. We added an ID to each of the sections. The IDs of the sections are: #home, #services, #portfolio and #testimonials.

  1. Let's add the navbar to our page. Click above the home section (1) and in the Bootstrap 3 Navigation tab (2), click add navbar button (3).

  1. Click add header button (1) and change the default navbar header text to your page name.

  1. Click inside the navbar container (1) and click add collapse button (2).

  1. Click inside the collapse container (1) and add nav (2).

  1. We change the nav items text so they correspond to our website sections (1) and add one more nav item (2).

  1. We change the nav item text to testimonials (1) and choose fixed top alignment (2).

  1. In the properties tab (1), click the home nav item (2) and add #home as a link (3).

  1. We do the same with the rest of the nav items, using their IDs led by # as link. Now you can save your work and preview the result.
