Creating a page folder

Page folders create the structure of your website so they need to be created when setting up your site or when you want to add a new section to it.

Let's look at an example of how they work. Below is the site builder, if you look at the structure on the left of the image, you'll see a page folder called Main. Within that, there are 2 more page folders (Men and Women). Within the Men page folder, there are 3 page folders (New arrivals, Clothing, and Shoes), and the Women page folder also has 3 page folders within it (New arrivals, Clothing, and Shoes).

You can see when the burger menu is clicked on the preview on the right of the screen, that the 2 items (plus Sales which is in the page folder screen but just out of focus on the list) that appear at the top are the same as the page folders (Men and Women) and when these are selected, the page folders within them are displayed.

Not all page folders go into the navigation, it must be set up in a navigation Frontastic component.
