Maybe this question is because of my lack of in-depth magento knowledge.

I would like to make a custom menu in my header. Right now I can place the default menu with login, my account, etc.

My question:
- How can I alter the contents of that menu?
- How can I create a custom menu that links to pages in the CMS of Magento.

The same applies for the footer menu, where can you alter the contents.

It is not the default footer_links and footer_links_admin static block.
There are no options in billion themler settings where you can edit this.

Is this hardcoded into the theme?

I think I could include a static block and make that block use div classes related to the themler menu classes, but it seems as a stupid way to do it. So probably it is hidden somewhere I haven't seen it?

Regards
Jurjen

Hi Jurjen,

For menus in Magento the following settings are available in Magento Admin >> Billion Themes >> [choose the theme] >> Settings:
1. It is possible to choose what categories to display in Horizontal and Vertical menu (all, current or none-for Vertical Menu block).
2. There is a possibility to display or hide the Home link and set the text for it.

Creating a custom menu and additional editing of existing menus is possible by manual editing theme files only (local.xml file). But please note that the file is overridden after export or save.

Nettie,

Yes, you really need customize Magento files to configure your menu. Alternatively, you can use special extensions like https://amasty.com/flexible-menu.html

Hello, Jurjen,

One way you can solve this probem is by adding static block with the content you want to link. After that, add a categoryand change the Display Mode in the Display Settings tab to Static Block only and select the created static block for that page on the CMS Block.

Alternatively, you may take a look on one of the Magento 2 extentions which will perform this kind of tasks automatically. One good example may be the magento 2 custom options by Itoris Inc.

Best,

Michael.
