Website top menu.

Top horizontal navigation unit displays links to your website's main sections and consists of two parts:

  1. Installed apps (e.g., "Shop", "Blog", "Photos", etc.).
  2. Pages of the Site app (e.g., "About us", "Shipping and payment", "Contacts", etc.).

You can add custom menu items by creating a "new rule" on page "Site" -> "Structure", or simply by creating a new page in "Site" -> "Pages".

Slider.

Note the animated banner (slider) when you take a look at the theme's demo page.

You can easily make such a banner yourself by using the standard functionality of the Photos app.

How to add a banner:

1. Install the free Photos app and create a new album.
2. Upload banner images into that album in Photos. Use 900 pixels wide images of equal height. Do not use the "Private access" setting for your album.

If it is the first album, no further action is needed. Otherwise proceed to the next step.

3. Get the created album's ID. It's the last number in the browser address bar when you are viewing an album, for example:

your-site.com/webasyst/photos/#/album/1/

In this example album ID is 1. By default, the banner uses this identifier. If you move your image to another album, simply change the value of field "Banner album ID".

Right sidebar.

This theme supports three-column layout (optional). If you want to place right sidebar on your website, simply create the block "shop.right_sidebar" on the page "Site" -> "Blocks".

Conclusion.

In most cases, the settings are flexible enough to create the desired look for your store. Should you need more freedom in customizing your website design, you may use the built-in design editor to make any additional changes.

Good luck!
