If you’ve upgraded to WordPress 3.0 and are using a compatible theme, you’re probably ready to learn about the custom menu for WordPress 3.0 sites! This feature is one of my favorites from the latest release of the WordPress platform. If you haven’t yet figured it out, check out this tutorial for WordPress Custom Menus.
Add your desired pages and categories, then head to Appearance/Menus. Name your navigation bar and save it. Then, in the left hand side of the editor, select the pages and categories you’d like to show on your menu. Click Add To Menu for each section and see your selections appear to the right.
Next, drag and drop your selections into the order you’d like. You can make some items appear on submenus by dragging them slightly right before letting go.
If you’d like to add custom/external links to your WordPress menu, you can do that here as well. Just type in the url and menu item title, and add it!
Drag, Drop, Repeat!
