Catalog/Menu Mobile Pages
One of our favorite page types in the Mobile Management Area is the Catalog/Menu page type. With this page type you can add a stylized menu or list of items. Each item has its own detail page with any type of content. The most popular use of this page type is for restaurant menus, but it can easily be used in other ways.
How to Use the Catalog/Menu Page Type
To start, you select "Catalog/Menu" on the New Page screen. You will need to provide a name for the page and a menu icon to use. After adding these things, click "Create".
Now, the page is saved and you can get started with adding content. There are two types of content you can add: "Item" and "Spacer/Title". A Spacer/Title is a display only element which has a different appearance than items and can be used for categorizing items on your menu, or as a heading.
Items are the main function in this page type. Each Item has a name, a "price" and content. You can add text, add images, embed videos and more in the content area. The Item name displays on the menu page. When a user selects that item they are taken to that item's page where the content details are shown and the "price" is shown in the top right corner.
Though this page type is ideal for restaurant menus and retail catalogs, it is not limited to these uses. For example, the 'Price" field is labeled as such, but the word "Price" does not appear anywhere on the front-end mobile website. You can easily use this field for any other type of label.
A great example of an alternative use is to use this page type for a staff page. Each member of your staff would be added as an item with their job title in place of a "price". You can use the Spacers to categorize your staff into groups.
Another great example is to use it as a portfolio. If you offer professional services, you can use spacers to divide things into service categories. Items will be used for each example of services you have offered, be it a case study, customer testimonial, visual examples etc.
The Catalog/Menu page type if powerful and flexible. It allows you to quickly and easily create an organized and effected area of your mobile website. It has a variety of uses and possibilities.
