By creating drop-down menus and smart collections, you can make it easier for customers to navigate your online store and find the products they are looking for. This tutorial has provided step-by-step instructions to help you implement these features in your Shopify store.

In this tutorial, Kevin from Pinehurst Websites will show you how to connect a collection to a navigation menu on a Shopify website. He will demonstrate how to create smart collections that automatically add products to a collection based on specific criteria, and how to link these collections to a navigation menu.

Connecting a Collection to a Navigation Menu:

1. Change a regular manual collection to a smart collection.

2. Sort the collection by vendor (in this case, Lucky Feathers).

3. Save the collection.

4. Edit the navigation menu and add a new link.

5. Connect the link to the Lucky Feathers collection.

6. Save the changes.

Creating Sub-Link Lists:

1. Create a new link list at the bottom of the navigation menu.

2. Connect the link list to a smart collection (e.g. Lucky Feather Charms).

3. Create a new smart collection based on specific criteria (e.g. Lucky Feather Charms).

4. Edit the sub-link list and connect it to the Lucky Feather Charms collection.

5. Repeat steps 2-4 for each sub-link list (e.g. Lucky Feather Bracelets, Lucky Feather Chain Necklaces, Lucky Feather Rings).

6. Save the changes.

By following this tutorial, you can easily connect collections to navigation menus on your Shopify website. Using smart collections and specific criteria, products will automatically be added to the relevant collections, making it easier for customers to find what they are looking for.
