WordPress Navigation / Menu Updating

WordPress provides an easy to use navigation system. Remember to save your current page before changing the menu.

The menu option appears in the Appearance sub-menu on the Website Dashboard.

Click on ‘Menus’ and the ‘drag and drop’ Main Structure appears.

The latest page appears on the left under ‘Pages’ – in this example – WordPress-Navigation-Menu.

You will need administrator authority to be able to change the website menu.


At the bottom of the Main Structure section, you will find the Main Settings.

I have the “Automatically add new top level pages to the menu” box ticked.

The latest page – WordPress-Navigation-Menu – appears at the bottom of the pages in the menu.

I want it to appear under Website Design and below the ‘WordPress add image’ page in the menu.


Simply drag and drop.



Adding a Custom Page – Not Clickable

There are times when a ‘Custom’ menu item is required that does not link to a page.

In this example menu, ‘Website Design’ is a top level item but it cannot be clicked to navigate to a ‘Website Design’ page.

This is achieved by going to Links, adding # as the URL and the required text in the Link Text box.

Click on ‘Add to Menu’ and then move the menu item in the main structure by Drag and Drop.
