Setting up a site with a landing page and two sides to the website each with separate menu.


I'm currently setting up a website for a customer which needs the following:

Home page: A landing page directing the customer to one of two site sections (in this case Families & Children | Weddings)

The rest of the site then is essentially the same theme, but one half of the site (families & children) will have one menu, and the other half will have a second menu (weddings).

Is there a simple way of setting this up that I am overlooking, or is the upfront builder just not suitable for this?

Look forward to hearing back! Stacey

    Hi Stacey,

    Thanks for asking. As you are trying to build your website, you can easily have two different menus for different pages according to your need by creating a custom page template.

    So at first, you will need to create a single page layout for your Family and Children section. Add your desired menu for Family and Children pages. When you are done, save the layout. Please check the attached screenshot for reference.

    After that, please click on the "Layouts" button on the left sidebar again, and now create a new page layout. Please check the attached screenshot for reference.

    On this second page layout, add your desired menu for Weddings.

    And you are done. Now open the Upfront Editor and while creating a new page for Family and Children section, select your first page template by clicking the "templates" link on your left sidebar. Please check the attached screenshot for reference.

    So do the same for all pages in Family and Children section.

    Now when you will be creating your pages for Weddings section, select the second page template you created with Upfront Builder. So your Weddings pages will have your second menu.

    This is one way for doing this.

    There is another way. In that case, you won't need the Builder. You can do the whole thing from Upfront Editor. So at first boot the Upfront Editor and create two global header region with two different menus. Now create your pages and assign appropriate header region with different menus to those pages. In this way, all your Family and Children pages will have one header with one menu, and Weddings pages will have another header with different menu.

    I believe, these will help. Please let us know if you still have any confusion or any further query. We will be glad to help further.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
