Creating a menu item to display a Search Classes view


If you have the Classes app, you can create a menu item that allows front-end visitors to search for classes using a Search record you create.

To add this menu item, first create the Search record using these instructions:

Viewing and managing Searches for the Classes app in the administrator

To create a Search Classes view:

  1. Go to the Menu Manager for your administrator
  2. Open the menu in which you wish to create the Search Classes view by clicking the icon in the Menu Item(s) column. For most Engage sites without the Soapbox content management system, this will likely be the Hidden Menu or Soapbox Engage Menu but can vary based on your site structure.
  3. Click New
  4. Under Select Menu Item Type, click Events
  5. Click Search > Form
  6. In the Title field, type the name of the menu item that you wish to display to the end user
  7. In the Alias field, you may leave this blank to have Soapbox automatically create the final portion of the URL for this page based on the title or you can customize your own alias
  8. Under Parent Item, select the appropriate menu item the new link should fall under. If it is a main level item, do not select anything.
  9. For Access Level, choose Registered or Special, depending on which users you wish to grant access to this view. Typically, you will select Registered.
  10. In Parameters (Basic) for Select Form, click Select and choose the Search record you wish to use for this Search Classes view
  11. For Details Button text, customize the text as you wish
  12. Click Save
