Menus

This section can be reached by this LINK or by navigating using the left hand administration menu while logged into the backend of your WordPress website as highlighted in yellow above.

In this section you can change the NAME of a particular menu link. You can also change the URL that the link will direct a visitor to, and rearrange the menu items by dragging and dropping them in the desired order.

You should avoid changing settings unless necessary.

The first editable field is the LABEL, in the example above the page name is ‘About’.

1. To change or edit the menu item’s name, simply add or edit text as highlighted in yellow above.

The grey bar at the top will update, displaying the new text as it will appear on your website’s menu.

This change is purely cosmetic, and will not affect the functionality of your website.

That being said, using long names may cause some display issues if the menu exceeds the standard horizontal breakpoints for various devices, and your menu will not display correctly.

2. Use the ‘Save Menu’ links at the top or botom right of the page to commit your changes.
