NOTE! Please do not add default Prestashop system pages (Contact us, Our store, Sales/Specials, New products, Best sellers) as Custom links to the Flex menu. Because they will not work for multilingual stores.

Can't add new menu item

Error 500 or 503 when add the menu item

For Flex menu work if your site under maintenance mode your IP should be added as allowed

Nothing happens when add new menu item

If you are trying to add new menu item and content block doesn't show up our customer wrote that it can be Java applet problem (mac os with firefox). Just install the latest new version and after that the Flex module should work fine.

When I add "Home" category it redirects to "Page not found"

If you pick “Home” or “Root” category as shown on the screenshot above you'll see “Page not found” error when trying to pick this category in the menu in the front office. This happens because “Home” or “Root” are non existing categories.
If you need to add parent category with the name “Home” to the Flex menu just create “Home” category in the Catalog > Categories
Make it parent towards other categories.
Then you will be able to add it to the Flex Menu.

How to add "Home" menu item that will redirect to the home page

For this create the custom link “Home”
and add it to the Flex menu
