Introduction to Mega-Menus

Overview

You have a theme that supports the Custom Menus feature, you can customize your navigation mega-menu. This allows you to:

  • Change the order of pages
  • Nest pages to create sub-menus
  • Display posts on multiple pages by creating category pages
  • Add posts, tag pages, and custom links to your navigation mega-menu
  • Add widgets to your mega-menu

The menu also supports sub menus. If you have a menu with more than 30 items you should use the sub menu feature. Add additional menu tabs for each of your sub menus. Create a "Main" menu and for each item and select a "sub-menu". This will help you organize your menu easily. Note: the sub menus will still generate a widget area for each menu tab.

To create a Menu

  1. From the WordPress Dashboard select Appearance > Menus
  2. Create your first menu and save it by clicking on the "+" sign
  3. You can create multiple "menu tabs" for each part of your menu
  4. In your "main menu" each item can have a "sub-menu"
  5. This shows the titles of the "menu-tabs" you created

This process will help breakdown large complex menus and avoid the menu item maximum of 25 items.

Menu Display

  1. From the WordPress Dashboard select Appearance > Menus
  2. On the left side of the window select the menu name to display it as the top menu on the site.
