Create a navigation content item
- Go to Content > Content Items.
- On the Overview of Content Items page, click Add Content Item > File list.
- On the Create Content Item: Product Set page, enter a NAME
- Optional: Enter a DESCRIPTION.
- On the Default tab, add files to the list:
- In the Available Files table, click +Add to list next to the needed files.
- In the Selected Files table, arrange the files by clicking Move Down or Move Up next to the files you want to move.
- Optional: Repeat the previous step on the needed locale-specific tabs.
The following logic applies in a multi-language setup:
- Locale-specific values overwrite the default values when the banner is rendered on a Storefront page with the locale selected.
- If the fields are not filled out for a locale, the default values are displayed on a Storefront page with the locale selected.
- Click Save. This opens the Overview of Content Items page with a success message displayed. The content item is displayed in the list.
Tips and tricks To clear product selection on a tab, click Clear locale.

Reference information: File list content item widget
The widget allows you to insert a File List content item that will be displayed as a link or icon to download the file, such as video, image, zip, pdf, etc on a page or block.
You can add only files uploaded to File Manager. Thus, if you make any changes to files in the File Manager section, for example, remove the file, these changes will be applied in the Content Items section as well.
See the File Uploader Feature Overview article to learn more about file types that can be uploaded to File Manager.
Use case example: This widget can be used, for example, to submit some additional information or attach a pdf promotion presentation of your products to a page.
