How can I add and manage links to my navigation menu?

Customizing your storefront header and footer
 

Providing good navigation menus on your store is fundamental. A good store should contain the main areas to visit on the top menu and all other required information links on a footer menu.

The Main menu controls the content of the header of your store and its menu items which are situated on the top row of your store. The Footer menu controls the content of the footer of your store and its menu items which are situated on the bottom of your store.

Both can be customized by:

  • Order: You can reorder the content by dragging (drag and drop) each menu item to the place wanted.
  • Name: You can quickly change the name of a menu item by clicking on it, editing its name and clicking Submit.
  • Content: You can create a new menu item by clicking Add More and choosing from these types:
  • web link
  • Link to a specific product
  • Link to a specific category
  • Link to a specific brand
  • Link to a specific article
