Creating Menu

 

In order to set up menus for your site, go to Appearance   Menus. Next, give your menu a name and click Create Menu.

 

Create Menu

 

Now begin adding menu items to your menu. There are sections on the left-hand side that you can add menu items from. You can choose from pre-existing Pages, Post, Categories etc. You can also create custom links. Here’s how you would add a Page, for example.

 

Add Page

 

You will then see those Pages added to your menu. Posts, Categories and other links work in a similar fashion. By drag & drop you can rearrange the menu items, move items to be sub items etc - 1.

At the bottom of the menu, you’ll see an option to add top-level pages to the menu automatically - 2. That means that when you create a new page, it will automatically get inserted into your menu as a menu item.

Once you finish creating menu items you need to assign your menu to a location so it will be visible. At the bottom of the menu, you will see check boxes for locations to place the menu - 3. Remember to click the Save Menu button when you’re done - 4.
