Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up navigation menus, part of WordPress and Genesis DIY: Community Website.
- In this movie, I'd like to show you how to add…some basic navigation to your site.…Whenever I'm setting up a theme,…I always like to refer back to the demo…to see where things are gonna go.…So taking a look at the Education Pro demo,…I can see that there's a menu area up here…above the logo, as well as this menu area on the right.…So, keeping that in mind,…let's create some menus for our site.…To do that, simply select the menus option…from the menu.…First, we need to create a menu.…And, you can name it whatever you want.…
This is just for your reference…and won't show on the front end of the site.…Next, you need to add some items to your menu.…Now right now, I don't have a ton of things…to add to my menu.…Later on, when I'm setting up my event calendar…and my community forms,…I'll have some additional things to add.…For now, I'm just gonna select Home,…the About, and Membership page.…I'll click the "Add to Menu" button.…And note that you can drag and drop these elements…to order them however you wish.…Let's save our menu.…
