  1. The guide tab now surfaces your specified articles. 

The Topic hierarchy tab only surfaces topic articles, not how-tos or references. To surface how-tos or reference, use the Featured articles or Article directory tabs. Any articles that live underneath your topic page are displayed underneath the topic they live under.

  1. Click the Edit icon to rename the tab.

Types of Guide Tabs


Featured articles

The Featured articles tab reveals articles according each of the following categories: Most Popular, Highest Rated, Recently Added, and Recently Edited.

Classification

In a Classification tab, articles which correspond to the chosen classification are listed alphabetically by URL.

Article directory

The Article directory tab lists all articles within the parent guide alphabetically by page title.

Tag directory

The Tag directory tab lists all articles alphabetically by tag; untagged articles are listed separately above other articles, and are visible only to Pro members.

Topic hierarchy 

The Topic hierarchy tab displays topic pages alphabetically by URL. Subtopic, or child pages, are displayed beneath their parents, also in alphabetical order by URL. Note that only Topic articles are displayed in this tab.

Path 

The Path tab is used to display any path or paths you choose. By default, Paths are listed in the order in which they are added to the tab, although they can be reordered easily via drag-and-drop.
