Posted on 02-12-2023 | Last Updated: 11-02-2024 | Category: Getting Started

How to Add a New Menu Item

Navigate to the "Appearance" section found in the left-hand side menu of your application's dashboard. Click on "Manage Menus." Here, you'll see an "Add Menu Item" button—click it to start the process.

Filling Out the Form

The add-menu.php page presents a form with fields for your new menu item. Here's how to complete it:

Menu Location: Choose the menu's location (Header, Sidebar, Footer).

Menu Name: Enter a name for the menu item. This text appears in the navigation bar.

Menu Link: If linking to a page within your site, navigate to "Pages," find the desired page, and copy its slug into this field. For external links, enter the full URL.

Menu Description (Optional): Provide a brief description for administrative reference.

Sort Order: Set the menu item's position relative to others in the same location. Lower numbers appear first.

Is Active: Tick this box to make the menu item visible on your site immediately.

After filling out the form, click "Submit" to save your new menu item. You'll be redirected to a confirmation page, where a success message confirms the addition, or back to the form with an error message if there were issues.

Example: If adding a link to your "About Us" page, go to "Pages," find "About Us," and copy the slug /about-us into the "Menu Link" field.

Troubleshooting: If your menu item doesn't appear, ensure the "Is Active" box was checked and that the "Menu Location" is correctly set. For further issues, consult the help section or contact support.

By following these instructions, you can efficiently add new menu items to your application, enhancing site navigation and user experience.
