Making a menubar

I'm trying to figure out how to make a menu bar.  I'm not sure how to do this.  I think lorilei or Fricka posted something on this topic, but wasn't sure how to proceed.  Seems it had something to do with the [content] tag, but if' I've already used that to view the products on the right in a layer, how do I create links on the left?

I read an older post just now about multiple files, using the cpshop.cgi file and just renaming it for each shop.  I wonder if this is the answer I'm looking for.  But it's late, and I'll try it tomorrow.

This is the message I was referring to.  

You can install multiple copies of cpshop.cgi and cpshop.cgi.config, and use one for each product line.

You would still only need one copy of all the other files.

Here's an example:

Instead of just having:


cpshop.cgi

cpshop.cgi.config
You could have:


lostmyshirt.cgi

lostmyshirt.cgi.config

teachshop.cgi

teachshop.cgi.config

terrorwear.cgi

terrorwear.cgi.config

Then you'd create a normal HTML store homepage (on your own), and use it to link to each line

Hello,
I was also thinking of making a menu bar along the right side so people could easily get to diifferent sections easily, on every page. Would I need to create a different named script for each if I'm using a premium store?

You could just make the links part of your template, and link to them individually.

Or as an alternative, you could enter each top-level section of your premium store into cpshop as its own store ID (for example, instead of just using "mystoreid," you could turn a single section, www.cafeshops.com/mystoreid/79287 into mystoreid.79287).

Then link to each of those sections in your template.

Either way, you'll still have to update it whenever you update your store with more sections.
