Pages and folders – Create menu items with subpages

Support > Designer since 11.2019 > Site editor

You can also create subordinate pages for main menu items. In the navigation, these are displayed using drop-down menus.

After you have «logged in to the Designer» you will find yourself in the Designer Editor on the start page and thus in the «Site editor» area. Proceed as follows:

1. Navigate

On the start page of the Designer Editor there is a button at the top of the blue bar, in the middle, here «Home Page» with a dropdown icon.

2. Button

By clicking on the button, the «Pages and folders» popup window will open automatically.

To create a «drop-down menu» in the navigation, a «menu item» must first be added. This will then serve as a menu item where the corresponding subpages can be added. To add this new menu item, click on the red «plus sign» button.

3. Settings

Here you can now choose under «Typ» whether you want to add a «New page» or a «New menu item (new folder)».

Select «New folder». Then give your menu item a «name», here: Offer. When all settings are created, click on «Done» in the top right corner to create the menu item.

4. New folder created

The menu item (folder) is created immediately and displayed as «Offer». You will be automatically redirected to the «Edit mode» of the automatically created «Index» page.

5. Hide index page

An «Index» page is automatically inserted under the newly created menu item «Offer».

Since the automatically created «Index» page cannot be deleted or edited, you should hide this page in the navigation. To do this, click on the blue «Index» button at the top.

To do this, click on the «three-point icon» next to the «Index» page, then select «Edit page settings» then follow the instructions Hide page in navigation.

6. Create subpage

To create the desired subpage, click again on the big red «plus sign» button.

Now create a subpage by entering the desired «page title» (here: Beverages). After define the «Location» by clicking on the «arrow symbol» next to «Top level». A drop-down menu opens. Here you can now select the desired folder (here: Offer). Then click on «DONE».

7. Added subpage

The new page «Beverages» will be created immediately and inserted under «Offer». You will be automatically redirected to the «Edit mode» of the just created page «Beverages».

8. Add more subpages

Repeat the process until you have added all desired subpages.

9. Edit subpages

Under «Page settings» you can enter or change additional information for each page. Proceed according to the «Page settings» instructions.

10. Preview menu

To view the menu structure as a website preview, click on the «Preview» or «Screen» icon at the top.

The view changes and the website is displayed without any editor editing elements. The new menu item «Offer» is displayed. Click on the «drop-down» icon and the subpages are available for selection.

By clicking on the «arrow» or «preview» icon in the upper left corner you can return to the editing mode.

11.Page layout

Of course, you can now «add more pages», make «page settings» and change the order of the pages in the menu (sort menu items) or fill this page with appropriate content (Add section). Click on the respective link to call up the corresponding instructions.
