Site structure is broken down into a series of tabs. Each tab contains multiple pages and subsections of content that pertains to the general theme of the tab name. Which tabs you can see is determined by the roles that you have been granted. (ie, those in the Student role only see tabs that pertain to students while faculty and staff each have their own respective roles and tabs.)
The breadcrumb trail right below the blue menu is a means of navigating and keeping track of where you are in the portal. Each time you drill down a level in the portal a breadcrumb is left. To jump back up to a higher level within the portal simply click on that level in the breadcrumb. Using the back button in your browser is not recommended.
The Sidebar displays the various pages and portlets that are available on the currently selected tab. Click on the down arrow icon to the right of the sidebar item to see available pages beneath it.
Within certain tabs you will see links with folders next to them. These are links to sections within that tab. A subsection is a subdirectory under the current tab but provides a new sidebar to navigate within.
The sidebar also has a Quick Links section where frequently used links are placed. There is also a shortcuts to your 'My Pages.'>
