How to Create a WordPress Menu

In this guide, you’ll learn how to create a WordPress menu, so users can access any page from one spot by organizing a simple-to-navigate menu for the website.

Why Use Menus?

A menu functions as a site map, so it must be simple for visitors to understand, navigate, and, most importantly, find the items they’re looking for.

Additionally, a well-designed menu enhances the user experience and leads to conversions, as you may have already figured out. If users can find their desired location, they will likely stay on a website and view more material.

Create a New Menu in WordPress

Navigate to the WordPress Dashboard > Appearance > Menus tab.

You can Automatically add new top-level pages to the menu and decide the menu location: whether it should be your header or footer. Different themes support different locations, so the settings may vary.

Finally, click the “Create Menu” button in the bottom right corner.
