The menu sidebar (also called the hamburger menu) helps customers navigate your app and find exactly what they’re looking for.
In this lesson:
- Learn how to customize your app sidebar menu
- Create your own destinations that fit your app's specific needs
How to Customize the Menu Sidebar
- Navigate to your Tapcart Dashboard
- Under the ‘Design’ tab switch to the ‘Menu’ toggle on the right-hand side
- Here you can edit the section titles, icons, and the menu background image
Add Menu Item
To add a menu item, simply click the ‘+ Add Menu Item’ at the bottom of your menu sidebar.
Edit Menu Item
To edit a preexisting menu option, hover over the menu title and select ‘Edit Menu Item’. From here you can edit the menu title, select an icon and choose the destination.
Upload a Menu Background Image
To complete the customization of your ‘Menu Sidebar’, you have the option to upload a custom image as your menu background. To edit this access the options on the left-hand side of your screen and scroll to the bottom, here you can upload an image to make your ‘Menu Sidebar’ fully branded.
We recommend an image size of 1125 x 2436 pixels.
Link to a Webpage
All of the menu items, except for the webpage, link to native functional items in the app.
If you want to link to external content such as blog posts, social channels, size charts, and more, you can add the URL to the webpage option.
The Menu Sidebar's default sections include:
- Collections (link to multi-level menu collections)
- My Bag
- Cart View
