How do I add a sidebar below the navigation menu in Drupal?

In order to create a navigation sidebar (the sidebar area located below the righthand navigation menu as shown above), you must first create a new subpage to house the sidebar content. To do this, follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Navigate to the page or top-level page of a section where you would like to add the navigation sidebar.
  2. Once you are on the correct page, click on the “Settings” tab in the Edit Console.
  3. Choose “Add sub-page” from the Edit Console
  4. Create a new page using the following settings.
    • Page name: Sidebar Content
    • URL name: sidebar
    • Appearance < Menu appearance < Location on screen: text for right column

  5. When you are finished, click “Create sub-page” at the bottom. You have now created an empty page that you can populate with content to display in your sidebar.

Note: Sidebars will cascade down through the subpages of an entire section.
