How to WordPress Menu Setup | WordPress Menu Setup



Setting up menus in WordPress is a crucial step in organizing your website's navigation. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to set up menus in WordPress:

**1. Log in to Your WordPress Dashboard:**

   - Open your web browser and navigate to your WordPress website's login page. Typically, it's located at `http://yourdomain.com/wp-admin`.

**2. Access the Menu Settings:**

   - After logging in, you'll be taken to the WordPress dashboard. From the left sidebar, hover over "Appearance" and click on "Menus."

**3. Create a New Menu:**

   - If you haven't created a menu yet, you'll see a prompt to create a new menu. Enter a name for your menu (e.g., "Main Menu") and click the "Create Menu" button.

**4. Add Items to Your Menu:**

   - After creating the menu, you can start adding items to it. You can add various types of items, including pages, posts, custom links, categories, and more.
   - To add pages or posts, go to the "Pages" or "Posts" tab, check the items you want to add, and click the "Add to Menu" button.
   - To add custom links, go to the "Custom Links" tab, enter the URL and link text, and click the "Add to Menu" button.

**5. Organize Menu Items:**

   - You can drag and drop menu items to rearrange them in the order you want. The topmost item will typically be the main navigation item.
   - To create submenus or dropdowns, drag a menu item slightly to the right below another menu item. It will become a submenu item.

**6. Configure Menu Settings:**

   - To configure the menu settings, click the "Menu Settings" tab at the bottom of the menu editor. Here, you can choose a display location for your menu. Common locations include the primary navigation menu or a custom location defined by your theme.
   - Save your changes when you're done.

**7. Save Your Menu:**

   - After adding and organizing your menu items, click the "Save Menu" button to save your menu.

**8. Assign the Menu to a Location:**

   - Depending on your theme, you may need to assign your menu to a specific location. To do this, go to the "Manage Locations" tab in the menu editor. Select the menu you just created from the dropdown list for the appropriate menu location.

**9. Preview and Test:**

   - Visit your website to preview the menu and ensure that it's displaying correctly. Test all the links and submenus to ensure they are working as expected.


**10. Customize Menu Styling (Optional):**

   - Depending on your theme and preferences, you may want to customize the styling of your menu. You can do this through the "Customize" option in the WordPress dashboard or by editing your theme's CSS.

That's it! You've successfully set up a menu in WordPress. You can always go back to the "Menus" section in your WordPress dashboard to make changes, add new items, or update the menu structure as your website evolves.
