Content Pages could be used to provide general details about your business, missions, and vision. In X-Cart, pretty much any eCommerce-related aspect is handled by the application. However, by creating your Custom Pages, you might provide additional information related to your terms, employees, news around your business. Basically, anything you think is going to be of interest to your visitors.
In this tutorial, we are going to step-by-step guide you on how to create custom pages and how to display them either at the Primary or the Footer menu.
For a start, please log in to your X-Cart Admin Area and navigate through the left-hand side menu bar to Content > Pages.
In this section, you can see a list of the Content Pages created by default in X-Cart. As you are probably already aware, the Power icon indicates whether the page is enabled or disabled, and the Crossed Arrow icon lets you organize the pages by dragging and dropping them to the desired position.
To create a custom page, you have to click on the "New page" button.
Upon doing that, you are being redirected to the page creation interface, where you have to configure the page settings and details. First, you have to specify the general page information:
When all the required information is filled in, you have to click either on the "Save" button (remain on the same page) or the "Save & Close" button (go back to the list of pages).
Now that your new page is created, it is time to add it as an item to the Primary or Footer menu.
To achieve that, please navigate through the left menu bar to Content > Menus.
When there, you can see the page is split into two tabs representing each of the menus. Depending on in which menu you would like to add the page, you have to ensure you are located under the corresponding tab.
Regardless of the menu, your first step is to click on the "New item" button.
Upon doing that, a new empty row appears where you have to specify the following details:
When ready, please click on the "Save changes" button to add the page to the menu.
Note that the page is automatically added at the top of the list. This means it is going to be displayed as the first item in the menu. You can organize the items and change their order by clicking on the corresponding Crossed Arrow icon and dragging the menu item to the desired position.
Once this is done, please go ahead and test if everything appears and works as expected on the storefront. When you ensure the intended result is accomplished, you are all set!
Well done! You have just managed to create a brand new page from scratch and add it to your store menu. We hope this new skill is going to be useful to you. In case you have any additional questions on the topic, please do not hesitate to contact our Support Team.
