Creating Custom Navigation Menu

All of our themes support the feature called Custom Menus, Custom menus is a way to control your navigation menu you only decide what you want to put in your custom menu. by default if you don’t configure your custom menu the default menu will show up you will still have a menu.

In this tutorial we will teach you how you can configure your custom menu. first go to your wp admin dashboard and in the Appearance < Menus please take a look at the screen shot below.

once there you will first need to create a menu, when creating a menu name it anything you want make sure its easy to identify because we will assign that menu later to a header.

after you have successfully created your first custom menu we will then assign it to your main navigation menu/or header menu. in the left side you will see a small widget called theme positions this is where you will assign the menu that we have created earlier.

click save and we are done assigning menus for a certain location, remember if you have 2 locations you need to assign it where you want it to go otherwise it will display in the other location.

now that we have finished creating and assigning menus, we need to create menu levels for your navigation. once you have created some pages you will see those pages you have created show up in the custom menu widgets check the pages you want it to show in your menus( tips you can also include posts and custom posts and as well as categories and Custom links )

after selecting all the menu you want to display in your custom menu, click the button add to menu. this will then list all the selected pages into the custom menu that we created earlier. once done don’t click save just yet we will discuss on how to design our menu according to our needs, you can drag and drop those menus in the desired position we want. if you notice the the blog left and blog right and Slider Image no.2 are not aligned with the others, right? that is because i’ve drag and drop them in that position on purpose to create a drop down menu.

if your satisfied with the results you can now click the save menu button, and your finished visit your home page and you can see the results of the menu we have created.
