Creating a Drop Down Menu in WordPress

Table of Contents

Are you looking to add a drop down menu to your WordPress website? Drop down menus are an important part of any website. Not only do they make navigating your site easier, but they also help with SEO by making sure that all the pages on your site are linked together. In this article, we’ll show you how to create a drop down menu in WordPress.

Adding a New Menu in WordPress

The first step is to create a new menu for your drop down menu. To do this, go to Appearance > Menus and click the “Create a New Menu” button. Enter a name for your new menu and click the “Create Menu” button. Once the menu has been created, you can start adding items to it.

Adding Items to Your Menu

Once the menu has been created, you can start adding items to it. To do this, click on the “Add Items” tab and then select which type of item you want to add: Pages, Links, or Categories. If you choose Pages or Links, you will be able to enter the URL of each page or link that you want to include in the drop down menu. If you choose Categories, you will be able to select which categories should appear in the drop down menu. When you have finished adding items to the menu, click “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page.

Creating Sub-Menus

Once all of your items have been added to the main menu, it’s time to create sub-menus. To do this, simply drag and drop one item onto another item until it becomes indented underneath it (this is called nesting). You can nest as many items as needed under each other item until all sub-menus have been created. When finished creating sub-menus click “Save Changes” once again at the bottom of the page.
