In the back-end of your Fishry admin panel, you may view the sidebar and at the bottom left select the Navigation tab under the heading ‘your website’
The Navigation bar is there to help your customers find products and information about your business once your online store is set up. This will also help you make decisions on how you want to operate the navigation of your online website
In order to do so, you need to understand and learn about the default menus, and compare how each navigation looks like depending on different themes applied to your store.
There are 2 default menus that appear on every page of your online store. These are the Main Menu and the Footer Menu. Default menus always have the option to add, remove or edit menu items
Main Menu: The main menu appears at the top of the page of your online store and can be seen on every page opened by your customers. Usually it’s displayed across the width of the header or in the side bar as lists, depending on your store’s theme.
Like an ‘About us’ Page, the customers use your main menu to find product and information about your business.
The main menu has 2 default items categorized as
- HOME: This is the main page of your online store
- Catalog: This displays all products of your store
In the main menu, a drop down menu can also be added from menu items. This is a sub-section and is displayed as a list of items underneath the main menu. A drop down menu is useful to organize a set of similar items which may include group of webpages, collections or your products. This is further helpful, if your store has many products which can then be added to collections to help your customers easily find a product they are looking for.
Footer Menu: The footer menu appears across the width or as lists of the footer which is the bottom of the page. This section is to help customers find useful information regarding your business such as store policies and contact information
You can add new menus by using the editing tool in settings for your header depending on the theme of your store, if this option is not available in your theme’s settings, you can customize the theme code in order to add a new menu.
Depending on the theme applied your store, the navigation is different for each theme and can be customized according to the needs and requirements of your online store.
