Old Checkout: Web Checkout Navigation (no longer supported)


In our effort to provide continued support at the highest level, we encourage our clients to switch to the new and improved web checkout. We will be gradually phasing out the old version, which is the focus of the article below. Please refer to our Implementation Guide and find all relevant documentation in the New Web Checkout section of our Knowledge Base. Should you have any questions, please reach out to your Customer Success Specialist or Ventrata Technical Support.

You might have seen some of Ventrata’s sites with drop-down navigation to other pages, and could be wondering how to set it up. This guide aims to help you get that done:

This is set on a Web Checkout level under the Navigation bar.

Simply hit + NEW NAV button and fill in the following information:

Title - the name of the page that will be displayed
Parent Navigation - if you want to include this in the drop-down menu
Header / Footer - choose where the link or menu will be visible
Page / Article / Category / Product / Redirect - choose the type of drop-down (redirect will ask for a path or a new webpage if you want to link to a partner’s website)
Destinations - when applicable

The outcome will look like this in a dashboard:

Also note the button RE-ORDER NAVIGATION below. This brings up the following menu, allowing you to adjust the order of particular navigations visible on the web checkout:

Drop-down menus

If you want to create drop-down menu, such as RIVERS in the images, all you need to do is to set a Parent Navigation, under which the other navigations will be sorted.

To do so, start typing into the Parent Navigation field while creating a new navigation, then hit "**Add Rivers**" when it appears. This adds it as a new parent navigation.

Please note, that a parent navigation which contains no other navigation will disappear. After hitting the Add button while creating a parent navigation, you need to create another navigation in the same tab before hitting Create Nav to save it.

The procedure is the same in cases of simple navigations - setting the Title and selecting the path. Parent Navigation adds the Title to the drop-down menu, with the other navigations listed below.

Once a Parent Navigation is created, containing at least one other navigation so it won't disappear, you may choose it as parent navigation for any other navigation. Select it in the + Create New Nav tab, without needing to hit the Add button. All these navigations will be listed in the drop-down menu.

Sometimes the navigations seems to be assigning incorrectly (under duplicated Parent navigations) when being created. In this case always try to use Re-Order Navigation button without making any changes and just press Save Sort. It usually helps.
