How can I create and display a menu in Website Builder?

This article will show you how to create and display a menu on your Website Builder website.

Although they may be typically associated with restaurants and cafés, menus are a great way of showing a list of your products and services, along with their respective prices, regardless of your industry. For example, it could easily be re-purposed by a mechanic to display the price lists for their services.

If you’re not sure which version of Website Builder you have, you can find out by reading this article.
