Today I created a new video tutorial and I want to teach you how to add a menu in WordPress.
So now you have created your blog and you have added the pages like your home, about me, products, and etc. but for some odd reason these pages is not showing up in your menu bar.
Now what do you do next?
Don’t worry, its all new to you and that is why I am going to show you how to solve this problem simply by following along my step-by-step tutorial.
I have been asked by a few of my students who are new to blogging to create this kind of tutorial so they can learn how to create a custom menu in WordPress.
How To Add A Menu In WordPress Video Tutorial
Watch this training video where I will teach you how to add a menu in WordPress using our blog as an example.
If you want to write things down and take some notes you can do that too.
How To Add A Menu In WordPress Tutorial Instructions
You can open this video and minimize the window and then open a second window with your WordPress dashboard opened side by side so we can go through step-by-step.
1. Click Add New Page
2. Type the title of your page
3. Save Draft
4. Publish (so you can visually see it)
5. Click on Appearance
6. Select Menu
7. Put a check mark in the correct box for your new page tab
8. Click on Add to Menu
9. Click on Save Menu
Keep in mind it is your own blog and you have total control on how you want the menu to look like.
The easiest most simple way to rearrange your pages on your menu is to just click hold drag and drop in the order you want your pages to appear.
Just make it a habit to save your work always before you publish.
One of the mistakes I made in the past with creating blog sites is not saving often and all that work just disappears, don’t let that happen to you.
How To Add A Menu In WordPress | Final Thoughts
You just want to visually see it but just make sure that you put that check mark in the column as I demonstrated in the video tutorial and select add to menu so you can see it.
Do not forget to save because it will not show up and you will have to start all over again.
It really can get confusing creating a new blog when you are doing it all yourself but that is why it’s a blessing to have the internet and YouTube.
Whenever you get stuck just feel free to go on YouTube to search for the answer to your WordPress problems or you can talk to either me or Ace.
I really hope this helped you get unstuck and moving forward to the next steps of setting up your new blog.
