After adding content to your blog, you need to think about menus. Menus allow your website visitors to navigate easily through your content.
You can display menus on the header, footer, and sidebar.
By default, your website has three types of menus.
1- Main menu
The main menu appears on every page of your website. The main menu is usually displayed as items across the width of the header. Vistors will probably look at your main menu to navigate through your blog categories and pages.
Your main menu has two default menu items:
- Home: the main page of your website
- Categories: a page that displays all of your categories
You can add a drop-down menu from any of the menu items on the main menu. A drop-down menu is a sub-menu from the main menu and is usually displayed as a list of items connected to the main menu item.
Drop-down menus are a good way of organizing similar items: groups of webpages, blog posts, categories related to each other, or site policies. For example, if you have a lot of categories then you might want to create a main menu item and then use a drop-down menu to add them to that item. This can help visitors to find the type of content that they're looking for.
Note: the main menu can't be deleted. If you want to hide it, remove all items inside the menu and leave it empty.
2- Footer menu
The footer menu is usually displayed as items across the width of the footer. Vistors will probably look at your footer menu to find information about your website policies and contact information.
Note: the footer menu can't be deleted. If you want to hide it, remove all items inside the menu and leave it empty.
3- Other menus
Depending on your website's theme, you might be able to add a new menu on the sidebar by editing the sidebar settings in the theme editor.
