Editing the Header Section

Header sections can be modified in the same way as other ePortfolio sections. The only difference is that the same header section appears in all the pages of an ePortfolio. Editing the header section in one page changes the section in all pages.

The header section contains the Navigation Menu, a set of links to the other pages in an ePortfolio. Navigation Menu content can be modified by adding and managing pages.It can also be styled and resized.
