The address book is a feature that allows a customer to store multiple delivery addresses.

The address book (that is, delivery addresses) is visible on the front page (user and website administrator can edit or delete entries).

You can add the address book as a menu

To add it, you must be logged in to the back of your Joomla installation.

Open the “Menu” and go to “All menu items”.  There you need to choose “New”.

In the  “Menu Item Type” you should choose the right type, in this case, “DJ-Catalog2” and “Delivery Address Book View”.
