Adding Items to a Menu
- The Screen Options allow you to choose which items you can use to add to a menu. Certain items, like Posts are hidden by default.
- Go to Appearance –> Menus in the left hand navigation
In this example, we’ll add 6 pages to the menu . One of the pages added will point to the ‘Home’ page of the site. The steps you will need to take are listed below:
- In the left-hand corner of the menu editor screen, you should see a sub-menu titled ‘Pages’ In this sub-menu, click the View All link. This will bring up a list of all the pages that are currently published on your site/blog. (See the screenshot below.)
- Select the pages you want to add to your menu by clicking the checkbox to the left of each item’s title. In this example, the‘Home’, ‘About’, ‘Another New Page’, ‘Child Page 1’, ‘Child Page 2’, and ‘Level 1’ Pages will be used. When you have selected the pages you want to include, click the Add to Menu button located in the bottom right-hand corner. You should now see a series of boxes, with the page titles of the items you added in the previous step on the left-hand side of each box.
- Click the Save Menu button to save the changes.
Deleting a menu item
- To access the options for the relevant menu item, find the corresponding menu item box in the right-hand corner of the menu editor window and left-click on the arrow icon in the top right-hand corner of it. The menu item box should then expand and the options we need to edit should be visible. See the screenshot below for an example.
- Click on the Remove link in the bottom left-hand corner. The menu item box for the menu item you deleted should no longer be displayed.
- Click the Save Menu button to save the changes you have made.
Creating multi-level menus
The menu editor allows you to create multi-level menus using a simple ‘drag and drop’ interface.
You can drag menu items up or down to change their order of appearance in the menu, or you can drag them left or right in order to create a multi-level menu structure. To make one menu item a subordinate of another item, then position it underneath, and drag it slightly to the right of, the main menu item.
