Elementor is a powerful page builder plugin that makes it easy for anyone to create professional-looking websites without any coding experience. One of the most essential features of any website is the navigation menu that helps visitors move from one page to another. In this blog, we’ll show you how to link pages to the menu in Elementor, so you can create a seamless browsing experience for your website users.
Step 1: Create a new page
First, create all the pages that you want to appear in your website’s navigation menu. To do this, navigate to the WordPress dashboard and click on “Pages” > “Add New”. Create pages for each of your site’s sections, such as “Home”, “About Us”, “Services”, and “Contact Us”.
Step 2: Add pages to the menu
Next, head over to Elementor, and navigate to the “Templates” section. Click on “Theme Builder”, and then choose “Header”. Click on “Edit Header”, and then add a “Menu” widget to the header. You can design your menu’s appearance using the options on the left sidebar.
To add pages to the menu, click on the menu widget, and then click on “Edit Menu”. Click on “Add Items” and select whichever pages you want to add to your menu. You can change the order of your menu items by dragging and dropping them in place.
Step 3: Preview your menu
Once you’ve added all the necessary pages, click on “Publish” to save your changes. Now, come back to your website and refresh the page. You should see your newly created menu on the page and be able to start navigating through your website.
Step 4: Customizing Menu Appearance
You can customize your menu appearance according to your design needs. Elementor makes it easier to adjust your menu items’ width, add a logo, and change the menu’s style. You can change the color of the menu items and customize the hover and the current page background color from the Style tab. If you’re comfortable with custom styling, then you can use CSS to style the navigation menu the way you want.
Step 5: Updating Menu Items
After publishing your website, you may need to add more pages or edit the existing ones. In such situations, navigate to your WordPress dashboard and click on “Appearance” > “Menus”. You can add or edit the pages to the menu and click on “Save Menu” once you’re done.
