If you’ve upgraded to WordPress 3.0 or above and are using a compatible theme, you’re probably ready to learn about the custom menu for WordPress 3.0 sites! This feature is one of my favorites from the latest big release of the WordPress platform. If you haven’t yet figured it out, check out this tutorial for WordPress Custom Menus.
Getting Started with WordPress Custom Menus
Go to Appearance/Menus on the left side of your WordPress dashboard.
Near the top select a menu from the dropdown, or click ‘create a new menu’ to get started. If you create a new menu, name and save it.
On the left you’ll have three options, Pages, Links, and Categories.
Select your desired pages and click Add to Menu. You can also add custom (external even!) links and categories. Click Add To Menu for each section and see your selections appear to the right.
Next, drag and drop your selections into the order you’d like. You can make some items appear on sub-menus by dragging them slightly right before letting go.
If you’d like to add custom/external links to your WordPress menu, you can do that here as well. Just use the Links section on the left, type in the URL and menu item title, and add it!
Drag, Drop, Repeat!
