Setup a WordPress Menu

After installing your WordPress theme, you will need to setup the menu. In your WordPress admin, choose under Appearance click Menus. If you have not already done so, create a menu by entering a menu name and clicking Create Menu.

  1. Choose the pages, categories, etc. that you want in your menu.
  2. Drag the items in the order you want them in and click “Save Menu.” (Sub menus can be created by dragging an item to the right.)
  3. Choose your menu in the “Main Navigation Menu” drop down and click “Save.”

*note, custom post or portfolio categories that you can create can be added to the menu as well.  You may have to enable them in the menu option tab in the top right if they do not show up as an option. (see video for this)
