Navigation allows you to manage certain menus within your storefront. Navigation is typically built into the theme that you are running. When a menu is added to your theme, it is easy to add more items to it or make adjustments without any sort of coding know-how.

Navigation menus are typically used for primary navigation areas such as the header of your storefront. Additionally, Navigation menus can also show you in the footer of your storefront as well.

Navigation consists of the following sections:


NameThis is the name of the navigation. Typically you would name these so that they are easily identifiable such as “Main Navigation” or “Bottom Navigation 1”.
StatusThis is the status of the navigation. The status can be Active, Inactive or Archived.
SlugThis is the slug name. The slug name will be used within your theme to pull it in properly where this navigation shows up typically in either the header or the footer.


NameThis is the name of the link.
StatusThis is the current status of the link.
Link ToThis is an option that allows you to pick what you want to link to.

Page IDs (Comma Delimited)This field is presented when linking a Page as a drop down menu. When the Drop Down option is selected, this field appears and can be populated with the Page IDs of the pages you would like to appear within this drop down menu on your storefront.
