Adding dropdown items to main navigation

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Apologies for this question from a rank amateur!

I am setting up my website and plan to have four separate stores (I know this isn't recommended, but it is what will work best for me), which I intend to be headings on my main navigation.

As an example, in my first store, the main navigation heading is 'Tablewear'.  Under this I would like to have dropdowns showing plates, napkins, cups, straws, etc, linking to these categories in the store.

In a practical sense, this would mean I would then click on say 'plates' and it would take me straight to all the different plates available in my store.

From what I can see, I can have a store as a main navigation item, but if I want to have a dropdown saying plates, it can only take me to a page and not a store.

Is this making any sense?  

Thank you so much in advance.

Click the '+' icon within the MAIN NAVIGATION area of PAGES.

Choose Link. The Create a Link box will appear.
