What can I do in the Site Content section?

In the Site Content section, you create and/or edit content pages.  Content pages, are all other pages on the website not related to products and categories, such as main menu pages like Home, About Us, Contact Us and additional content pages such as Terms and Condition, and FAQs.

To edit or create the pages on your store:

  1. Login into your 3dcart Online Store Manager
  2. From the left menu go to Content ->Site Content

Once there, you should be two sections: Menu Links on the left and Extra Pages on the right.

Menu Links

The menu links section creates and modifies pages on the store's main navigation menu.  The look and layout of your main menu is dependent on the design Theme you are using but most of them will have the menu located on the top.

To add a new page to the Menu links section:

  1. Go to the Site Content section as described above
  2. Click "+Add" at the top right of the Menu Links section
  3. Type the name of the page
  4. Select from the drop down if it is a new main page or a secondary page to an already existing menu page.
  5. Check "Hide Link" if you do not want the page to be available on the website
  6. Sorting determines what order the page will be in the main menu.  Lower numbers display first. Make sure the sorting order does not conflict with another page.
  7. Click the "+Add" button to create and add the page to the Menu Links listing.

To edit a menu link page:

While in the menu listing section, look to the right of the page listing and click on the "Action ->Edit" button.

The Content page has the following parts:

  • Link:
    If you would like the link to lead to another page such as the my account page or an external link such as www.google.com, specify the link here.*

    If creating a brand new page (i.e. not linked as above), you can create additional frame templates that will display for the content.  (Click Here for more details)
