Menu Builder

The menu builder is divided into two sections: Add Menu Items and Menu Structure Preview

How to add menu items

  • This panel presents all parts of your store that you can link to.
  • It is from these store elements that you can select elements that you wish to appear in your menu.
  • The various elements that you can add to your store are grouped (Department, Category, Subcategory, Content, Brands and Themes, Blog Content, Miscellaneous).
  • Click a group and select your menu content.
  • Choose the type of content you want to add: Static or Dynamic.
  • Click Add Selected to add specific menu content to your menu structure on the right.
  • Click Add All to add all the available content within that group to your menu structure.

Static or dynamic

  • A static department is a department the will appear as a single link. 
  • No additional link or child categories will be generated.
  • A dynamic department can generate multiple links or child categories. 


  • Contains a list of commonly used links such as Registries, Account Page, and the default Dynamic Store Navigation.

Dynamic store nav

  • Including this in your menu is a short cut to adding all departments with all their categories and all their subcategories to your menu. 
  • This is dynamic menu content and therefore cannot have any children.

Text title

  • This allows you to enter text into the menu that isn’t a link. 
  • It is useful when grouping various menu content together into logical groups. 

External link

  • This will allow you to attach a URL to your menu. 
  • In the menu, content configuration panel is a special input called URL.
  •  Enter a URL to any URL on the web and the link will be displayed in your menu.
  •  This is useful if you want to redirect customers to your store's social media.

Note: Remember to enter a Label or the link won’t have anything to display on the menu.


  • You might want a special product to be easy to find, product will create a link to a selected product on your store. 
  • When you add this to the menu, click Find Product to locate an item in your store. 
  • The link will display the product name unless you add a label. 
  • The Product Name, Product Code and Product ID fields will automatically complete when you click Find Product.

Blog landing page

  • Add the blog landing page to let your shoppers find your blog posts and articles quickly and easily. 

Account page

  • This will direct your customers to their account page. 
  • Here they can log in or register an account.


  • This page will send customers to the lists & registries page.
  • Here they can select to purchase items from a registry or set up a new registry. 

Note: Shoppers must have an account with the store in order to set up a registry or list.

HTML Content

  • This menu content will allow you to insert some HTML markup directly into a menu item <li>
  • This has the potential of breaking your store so ensure you test it VERY carefully when you use it.
