Modifying your
website navigation menu

The navigation menu is an important part of your website. It is how your website users will move around your website from page to page. Changing it is very simple.

Getting to the navigation menu edit screen

Hover over the Appearance tool on your Tool Bar and select Menus. Under Menu Structure, you will see a listing of all your pages in your main navigation.

(Doesn’t match? Make sure you have the correct menu selected by going to the dropdown select field at the top, select main (Main) and press Select.)

Moving pages in your menu

Think of each name in the Menu Structure as block. You can move that block anywhere you want in your structure. Just click and drag it to where you want it to be in your navigation listing.

Items that are indented are sub-items of the non-indented item directly above it. These will display as a sub navigation menu where the user needs to mouse over or click the main item to display the submenu of pages. Great for user long navigation menus. An example of a sub menu is the My Dashboard link on this website. All the pages under that are sub menu items.

Make an item a sub menu by dragging it to the parent item you want and move it to the right.

To remove it as a sub menu item, click the down arrow on the right and select Move Out from under [parent title].

Adding new pages to your menu

Along the left side, the first tab shows your most recent pages that have been added to your website. Click the page you want to add and then click Add to Menu.

Your page not shown? Make sure your page is properly published first. Then choose View All or Search to find your page.

You can also add Posts to your navigation menu as well. Just click the posts tab, and follow the same process.

Saving your changes

Once you have made any changes to your menu structure, you will need to click Save Menu for the changes to be made to your website and live on the web.
