This screen is used for managing your custom navigation menus.
Menus can be displayed in locations defined by your theme, even used in sidebars by adding a “Custom Menu” widget on the Widgets screen. If your theme does not support the custom menus feature (the default themes, Twenty Fifteen and Twenty Fourteen, do), you can learn about adding this support by following the Documentation link to the side.
From this screen you can:
- Create, edit, and delete menus
- Add, organize, and modify individual menu items
The menu management box at the top of the screen is used to control which menu is opened in the editor below.
- To edit an existing menu, choose a menu from the drop down and click Select
- If you haven’t yet created any menus, click the ’create a new menu’ link to get started
You can assign theme locations to individual menus by selecting the desired settings at the bottom of the menu editor. To assign menus to all theme locations at once, visit the Manage Locations tab at the top of the screen.
Each custom menu may contain a mix of links to pages, categories, custom URLs or other content types. Menu links are added by selecting items from the expanding boxes in the left-hand column below.
Clicking the arrow to the right of any menu item in the editor will reveal a standard group of settings. Additional settings such as link target, CSS classes, link relationships, and link descriptions can be enabled and disabled via the Screen Options tab.
- Add one or several items at once by selecting the checkbox next to each item and clicking Add to Menu
- To add a custom link, expand the Custom Links section, enter a URL and link text, and click Add to Menu
- To reorganize menu items, drag and drop items with your mouse or use your keyboard. Drag or move a menu item a little to the right to make it a submenu
- Delete a menu item by expanding it and clicking the Remove link
