In my post, I show you how to make a drop down menu in WordPress, step by step.
Menus are essential for your blog. Navigation should be simple and easy to use.
Let’s get started.
Step One – Assign Categories To Blog Posts
When you create a new blog post, assign it to a category.
On the right-hand side of the editor is a Categories tab.
Assign your post to a category or create a new category.
To add a new category, click on Add New Category.
Add the new category to the New Category Name box.
When creating sub-categories, you can assign them to a Parent Category.
When you assign your post to a category, publish or update your post.
Step Two – Create A Menu
Hover your mouse over Appearance, and select Menus.
Give your menu a name and click Create Menu.
After creating a menu, you can add items.
To create a homepage, click Custom Links.
Enter your website URL, and type Home.
Select Add To Menu to create a homepage tab.
Home appears on the right.
Add Categories to your menu by clicking Add To Menu.
Now your menu has a homepage tab and categories.
Next, add posts to your menu by clicking Add to Menu.
Step Three – Create A Drop Down Menu
Next, move your post tabs to the right, under the category tab.
Left-click your mouse on the post tab you want to move and drag it to the right.
Continue until all your posts are under a category.
Posts moved to the right show as a drop down menu.
When complete, click Save Menu.
Now the drop down menu is live on the site.
Hover the mouse over one of the categories, and the posts in appear.
You can change the order of the posts, change the category positions in your menu, and delete the menu.
