Create Menus in WordPress

WordPress Menus allow you to create links to other pages within your site or can allow you to place links to external sites/URLs.

Some elements in OptimizePress such as the “WP Menu” element, and the “List Menu Element” rely on having a WordPress Menu available in order to use the element. 

In this guide we are going to walk you through how to setup a WordPress Menu.

Create the Menu

The first step in creating a menu would be to navigate to the “Appearance” tab on the left side of your WordPress Admin area: 

Then click on “Menus

If you have existing menus, you can click the link next to the menu dropdown to “Create a new menu”

Or you may see something like you see below if you have no existing menus: 

Whether you have an existing menu or not, you’ll just need to put something there in the Menu Name field, and then click “Create Menu”

To add links to the menu, simply check the boxes and click “Add to Menu”

Now you’ll see those pages listed under the Menu Structure:

You can drag and drop the menu items to put them in the order you want. The top item is always going to show first (from top to bottom or left to right) when you place a menu on your page. 

Also, you can make a menu item a sub-item by positioning it a little to the right. You’ll notice when you do that, the link is slightly indented, and also has a label of “Sub item

Don’t forget to save your menu!

After you are done adding your pages and organizing them, don’t forget to click the blue “Save Menu” button:

Once the menu is saved, you’ll be able to use it in any menu elements that we have in the OptimizeBuilder.
