Your X-Cart-based store has two default menus that appear on every page: the primary (header) menu and the footer menu. You can edit and/or delete the default items of both primary and footer menus and add new items instead, as well as add a drop-down menu from any of the menu items in the primary menu.

In this section:

Primary Menu

The default primary menu is displayed as items across the width of the header. A customer may probably look at your store's primary menu to find some information about your products and contact details, like a “Contact us” page.

A default store primary menu has six predefined menu items:

  • Home: The main page of your online store.

  • Hot deals: The menu item with a drop-down submenu. This is the place where your store visitors will find links to pages generated by such add-ons as Sale, Bestsellers, and Special Offers.

  • Shipping: The page describing your store shipping policy and delivery options available.

  • New!: The page that lists the new arrivals. The page content is formed automatically based on the Product Advisor add-on settings.

  • Coming soon: The page that lists products that are scheduled to arrive. The page content is formed automatically based on the “Arrival date” set for products.

  • Contact us: The page with your company contact information. For more info about the page content, see Enabling the Contact Us Form.

You can edit and/or delete the default menu items and add new ones instead, as well as add a drop-down menu from any of the menu items in the primary menu. A drop-down menu is a sub-menu from the main menu item and is usually displayed as a list of items connected to the main menu item. Drop-down menus are a good way of organizing similar items: groups of web pages, blog posts, store policies, products, or product categories.

Footer Menu

The footer menu is usually displayed as links across the width of the footer. A customer will probably look at your footer menu to find information about your store policies and sitemap.

The default Footer menu looks as follows:
