How to Add a Dropdown Menu to Your WordPress Site

Table of Contents

Have you ever wanted to add a dropdown menu to your WordPress website? Dropdown menus are an attractive and efficient way to organize the navigation of your site, but they can be tricky to set up. Fortunately, there are a few easy steps you can follow in order to create a dropdown menu for your WordPress site.

Step 1: Log In To Your Site’s Dashboard

The first step is logging into your WordPress dashboard. Once you’re logged in, look for the “Appearance” tab on the left side of the page and select “Menus” from the sub-tabs that appear. From here, you’ll be able to create and edit new menus for your site.

Step 2: Create New Menus

Once you are in the Menus section of your dashboard, click on “Create a New Menu” at the top right corner of the page. Here, you will be able to name your new menu and assign it a location on your site (for example, if you want it to appear as part of your website’s navigation bar). When you are finished filling out this information, click “Create Menu” at the bottom of the page.

Step 3: Add Items To Your Menu

Once you have created your new menu, it’s time to start adding items! On this page, there will be several sections including “Pages,” “Posts,” and “Custom Links.” Selecting any of these categories will bring up a list of items that correspond with them—for example, selecting “Pages” will show all pages available on your website. Clicking any item in these lists will add it as an option within your new menu. If you’d like to create a dropdown menu within this one, simply drag any item beneath another one and slightly indent it—this will make it into a dropdown item when viewing the menu on front end! You can also add external links by entering them into the “Custom Links” section at the bottom of the page. When finished adding items to your menu click “Save Menu” at the top right corner of this page.

Step 4: Assign Your Menu To A Location

On Your Site The last step is assigning this new menu somewhere on your website so viewers can access it easily! You can do this by scrolling down until you find “Menu Settings” near the bottom right corner of this page. Here there should be several boxes titled with locations—select which one(s) you would like this particular menu assigned too and then click “Save Changes” at the bottom right corner of this page when finished. And that’s all there is too it! If done correctly, whenever someone visits one specific location on your website they should now see a dropdown menu filled with options that link directly where they need or want to go!


With just four simple steps – logging into their WordPress dashboard; creating new menus; adding items; and assigning their menus – anyone can add an attractive and efficient dropdown menu system for their website! This method may take some practice but once mastered makes organizing navigation much easier for both visitors and administrators alike! Whether someone wants their customers quickly navigating between blog posts or products pages – enabling easy access by using dropdowns makes perfect sense! So get started today – try setting up some dropdowns yourself – happy coding everyone!
