Creating a Menu

To create a navigation menu, you need to visit the Appearance » Menus page in your WordPress admin dashboard.

First, you need to provide a name for your menu, like “My Menu” and then click the “Create Menu” button. This will expand the menu area.

Next, you can choose the pages you want to add to the menu. You can either automatically add all new top-level pages, or you can select specific pages from the left column.

First, click the “View All” tab to see all your site’s pages. After that click the box next to each of the pages you want to add to your menu, and then click on the “Add to Menu” button.

Once your pages have been added, you can move them around by dragging and dropping them

Note: All menus have their items listed in a vertical (top to bottom) list in the menu editor. When you put the menu live on your site, it’ll either display vertically or horizontally (left to right), depending on the location you select.
