How to create & publish a Menu
This is a TWO STEP process.
- create a Menu using the Menus > Manage screen.
- create a Menu Module to publish the new Menu where you want it to be displayed.
STEP 1: Create a Menu
Once your Menu has been created you can add Menu Links.
The Menu will not however be visible until you create a Menu Module to control when and where it will be displayed in your website.
See STEP 2.
Select the NEW button to create a NEW Menu.
Menu Title = Top Menu
Menu Type = top-menu
Description = top-menu
STEP 2: Create a Menu Module
In this example we will choose Menu.
The new Module will be used to control display of a Menu.
First we need to name the Module and because it is to be used to control a Menu, select the Menu to be controlled.
By default the Menu Module will publish the chosen menu On all pages.
You can however choose to only display any one Menu as you please.
See other options in the drop-down.
Finally, you may wish to control the formatting of the Module using the fields highlighted below.
This will require advanced knowledge.
No need to reinvent the wheel
Duplicate an existing Module.
If the purpose of your NEW Menu Module is to display a Menu in the RIGHT position (i.e. right sidebar), then DUPLICATE an existing Menu Module which does just that for a different Menu.
Then simply change the name of the Menu to be displayed by the Menu Module.
