Only in Top gallery/intro widget (mosaic) you can assign another labels in Setup&edit > Options > Top gallery/intro widget.

Footer menu

There is no footer menu, but you can make it by adding links to footer.

In Setup&edit > Main > Titles, header, description & footer add links. Create list of links. Optionally use CSS to display it as you need. You can also just write links one after another and separate them by | .

See how to create links below.

Links

If default navigation isn't enough then feel free to add more links i.e. in competition description, custom widgets or in footer or banner slots.


Using WYSIWYG editor:

  • For competition pages use this icon 
  • For external links create some text or image, select it, click on Create/edit hyper-link, add address.

See demo how to set links

Using text editor:

Use HTML syntax
<a href="url">Link text</a>
where the href attribute specifies the destination of a link.

Links to gallery

Default link to gallery is:

/gallery

for example for top domain or subdomain

http://yourcontest.com/gallery

or for other:

http://yourDomain.com/contest/gallery

By default in gallery entries are sorted by "Top entries" after winners annoucement and "Latest entries" otherwise.
Check here how to force another sorting method.

If you want to add anywhere some separate links to specific galleries, for instance:
First Category Sorted by Top Entries,
or 
Latest Entries in Second Category added Yesterday

then:

  1. Go to gallery, select filters appropriately
  2. Copy link from adress bar in your browser
  3. Go to admin area, create link in any editor and paste link source.

Warning: If you add time specific link by hand (for instance "sort by latest" or time filters) don't forget to remove it when it's useless.

More info about sorting options and filters find here.
