Create Pages and Navigation in Square Online

Pages are an essential part of your website. They display your content and give your navigation menu a sense of purpose. This article explains how to create and manage your pages, and edit your website’s navigation menu in the Square Online site editor.

Create or Copy a Page

In the Square Online site editor, select +Add > Page. You can also select the Page dropdown menu and use the Add page button there.

Next, choose the type of page you’d like to add:

Page types

  • Blank page: An empty page with a blank canvas that allows you to add sections from scratch. Learn more about adding sections to Square Online.
  • About: A page with an informational text and image section already included for you to edit and customize.
  • Contact us: A page with a contact form already included for you to edit and customize. Learn more about adding a contact form to Square Online.
  • Gallery: A page with an image gallery already included for you to edit and customize. Learn more about image galleries and slideshows in Square Online.
  • Instagram: A page with an Instagram section already included for you to edit and customize. Learn more about adding an Instagram feed to Square Online.
  • Shop: An ordering page for customers to purchase from your online store. Learn more about adding a single ordering page to Square Online.
  • Stories overview: An overview page for all of your blog-style Stories.
  • Story: A page where you can add an individual blog-style Story post.
  • Home: A homepage for your website.
  • Gift Cards: A page where you can link to your Square eGift cards account to allow customers to purchase eGift Cards from your website. If you already use Square eGift Cards, you’ll be prompted to sync your existing account and link directly to a Square Gift Card purchase page. This will automatically embed Square Gift Cards on your online store.
    If you do not have Square eGift Cards, you’ll be led back to your Square Gift Cards Overview page in Dashboard where you can get set up. You’ll be able to choose your gift card designs, default amounts and redemption policy. Once your gift card account is set up and synced, you can add a navigation link to your gift cards purchase page.
  • Appointments: A page with an online scheduler that works with Square Appointments to allow customers to book right on your Square Online site. Learn more about how to set up online bookings with Square Appointments for more details on Square Online and other tools that work with Appointments.

If you want to add a category or item page, you can add an item or category to your online store first, right in the editor. A page for the newly added item or category will then become an option in the editor. Learn more about adding an item and category to Square Online in the site editor. You can also learn more about customizing your item pages and category pages in Square Online.

Once you’ve chosen a page, enter a name for the page to display on your navigation. You can uncheck Add page to navigation if you don’t want the page to be accessible from your site’s navigation menu (i.e. the page can only be accessed if you share the link directly to that page). Select Add to finish.

To copy an existing page, open the page list and locate the page you want to make a copy of. Select the “...” button next to the page name, and select Duplicate page.

Note: Some page types (e.g. item pages, category pages) cannot be copied.

Add Content and Edit Page Settings

After saving your new page, you can add content with sections.

To change the settings for a page, select the gear icon in the editing panel and select View page settings. The page settings pop-up window has three tabs:

Add and Edit Navigation Links

As you add pages to your site, you’ll have the option to add links to those pages on your website’s navigation menu. Learn more about how to add a link to your site for more information on adding links to your navigation menu.

You can also create anchor links in your navigation menu, which are links to a specific part of a page. For example, let’s say you’ve placed a contact form near the bottom of your homepage. You can add a link to the navigation that will jump right to the contact form section on the homepage.

Note: Editing or removing links from the navigation menu will not change or delete the associated page or section.

Rearrange Pages and Create Subpages

To rearrange pages you’ve added to your navigation and create subpages, go to your Square Online site editor and select the Header section on your site. Then select Navigation > Navigation links in the editing panel.

ep-sos-pages-drag-en

Select a page in the navigation links list and drag it up or down to move it to a new position in your navigation menu. To turn a page into a subpage, select the page and drag it underneath and to the right of the parent page.

You can add a new page as a subpage. While editing the navigation menu, mouse over any page and select the “+” button. Choose to create a new page and enter a name. After saving, the new page will automatically be a subpage of the parent page.

Delete Pages

To delete a page from your website, open the page list in your Square Online site editor and hover over the page you want to delete. Then select the “...” button, select Delete page and select the button to confirm it’s OK to delete the page.

Note: Deleted content oftentimes cannot be recovered, so feel absolutely confident that you no longer need that page.
