Use this section to create custom storefront menus. Menus help to organize different types of content (e.g. Links, Content pages, Categories, etc.) displayed on pages into short consistent lists. Each menu can be added to any part of the storefront in Design → Layouts through a block of the Menu type. By using menus you can provide lots of useful information without occupying too much space on the storefront.
There are two types of menus in CS-Cart—manually created and dynamic.
Use the + button to add new menu, or click the gear button and choose Edit to edit existing menus.
To create a new menu and to display it on the storefront, complete the following steps:
All menus are created empty.
You can fill the menus manually or using the content of the store.
Click the gear button next to the created menu, choose Manage items, and in the opened window click the + button.
In the appeared window specify:
Parent item—Select the necessary parent level.
Name—Type the name of your item (e.g. New Item).
Pos.—Specify the link position.
URL—Enter the URL of the page which will open when the link is clicked on (e.g. index.php?dispatch=categories.catalog).
Activate menu item for dispatch—Specify the pages on which to display the tab as active (e.g. sitemap.view).
If you use two or more pages, leave this field empty.
Generate submenu—Select whether submenu containing child elements of the selected object (None = no submenu; Category = subcategories of the selected category; Page = child pages of the selected page) should be generated.
User-defined CSS class—User-defined CSS class will be added to the menu item, so this will allow to define the menu item with its own CSS style.
To display a menu on the storefront you will need to create a block of the Menu type.
