On a one page design, it’s pretty simple to set it up with links. Each block in the customizer has a setting to copy the block’s url.  You can copy, then paste that url into any menu link you want, or you can create a new one.

You can use the url from the header block or menu block row to make a to-the-top button. We’ve done that by making the logo in the footer go to the top of the page when clicked.





Linking to blocks step by step


Step 1.

You can create a new block with new content first, or just use existing blocks we’ve already made for you. In the ProPhoto customizer, make sure you’re on the home page template first.

If you’ve just activated the design, most likely the blocks will be closed to make it easier to see what you’re doing. You can click the arrow to drop those blocks down to customize them.



Step 2.

Once you’ve clicked the dropdown to open the block, hover over the block to bring up the green bar, and click the hamburger menu to bring up the settings. There you’ll click “Link to block” which automatically copies the URL to the block.



Step 3.

Now that you have your URL copied, click the blue rounded button at the top of the sidebar to switch to the “design” level.

Click the menus button in the sidebar to bring up the menu items in ProPhoto.

There you can click on any existing menu item once to edit it’s settings, or you can click the  “new custom item” button to create a new menu item, but it’s easier to use the ones we’ve already created for you and just simply edit them.

To move the menu links or re-arrange them, drag and drop them where you want in order that you want.



Step 4.

Once you’ve clicked onto the menu item, click the “add link to specific block/row/column” box if it’s not selected already, then simply right click the box url box and paste your URL into the box. Alternatively you can also press control or command+v to paste it into the box.

Make sure to click save when you’re done.






Creating a new link with the url


To create a completely new menu item on the menus screen, click the “new custom item” button to create a new link.



You only need to choose the “home page link” option to add a link item that has the option to paste in the block URL.



Now you can repeat the process from previous steps to paste in a block URL.
