Modifying Menus on a WordPress Site

Menus are typically used to link to the most common & important pages & categories on a website.

Menus are typically used to link to the most common and important pages and categories on a website, although you can create links to posts and create custom links to any page you like as well.

The location of the menus depends on the themes. Typically the main menu is at the top or side of the page, and may include (for example) pages such as Home, About, Services, and Contact. You may also have other locations for menus, such as in the footer.

In this tutorial I will show you how to modify menus on a WordPress site.

In your WordPress dashboard, go to “Appearance” and click “Menus”.

If you have multiple menus defined, make sure that you select the one you would like to modify (eg. Main Menu).

If you have no menus defined, click on “create a new menu”.

In the Pages section, select the pages you want to be added to your menu. You can click the “View All” to view all the available pages. Check the appropriate box and click “Add to Menu”. This will add the selected pages under the Menu Structure.

You can do the same for Posts or Categories, or create Custom Links to any page.

In the Menu Structure section, you can drag the menu items to modify the order of the menu items on the page.

You can also create sub level menus. To do this, simply drag a page menu item underneath the top level menu item, and move it until it is indented slightly. This will indicate that it is a sub-menu item.

When finished, click the “Save Menu” button.

Your new menu has now been added to your site.

Make sure that you check out the video below as I run through modifying menus in the back end of WordPress. If you have any comments or questions, make sure you leave them below.
