Creating a Shopping Cart view for the Shop shopping cart experience


As part of the Shop shopping cart experience, you will need to have a menu item that defines the URL for the Shop shopping cart view. This menu item will create the URL for visitors to access the Shop shopping cart that you have customized within the administrator.

To create the Shop shopping cart view:

  • Go to the Menu Manager for your administrator
  • Open the menu in which you wish to create the Shop shopping cart 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.
  • Click New
  • Under Select Menu Item Type, click Soapbox Shop
  • In the options that expand, click Cart > Default Layout
  • In the Title field of the form that opens, type the name of the menu item that you wish to display to the end user
  • 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
  • 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. For most Engage sites without the Soapbox content management system, you will likely keep this as a top level menu item.
  • Click Save
  • In the Menu Item Manager, use the green arrow keys to shift the order of the new menu item in relation to existing items. This will affect how the menu item is displayed on the front-end of the site.
