Creating Menus

Create menus via the Customizer menu. You can create and save multiple menus. Before you start adding, sketch a wireframe of your webpage. This will give you a map of how you want the overall site to appear and navigate.

Depending on the theme, you may have more than one menu in more than one location. Make sure you check your documentation to see where the menus are and how to best use them. You can add custom links, pages, posts, categories to your menu.
