This is going to be very simple guys So, let’s get started. Now to change the menu First let’s go to the ‘customize’ option in your WordPress Dashboard. 

So, I’m going to click ‘customize’, And then we’re going to go into ‘menus’ and you can see that right now there is a menu called ‘top navigation’.

if we go into this you can see that the items that are here match with the menu that we have on the top right section of your site. So, This is the menu which we have here.

So, First, we’re going to delete, this menu So, let’s click ‘delete’ And it’ll be removed Now let’s see How to Create a new menu.

To create a new menu, let’s click ‘create new menu’ Now, first we need to give a name for this new menu So, I’ll call this menu “top menu”. 

After we enter a name for our menu, We need to choose ‘where’ this menu needs to appear So, the theme that I’m using now, shows ‘these two’ locations Which is the Primary menu & the footer menu.

Now I’m going to choose the primary menu which will put the menu, in the ‘top right area’ So, I’ll select that and then click ‘next’. 

Once you have created the menu We can now ‘add’ items to the menu So, let’s click ‘add items’ And ‘these’ are the items which you can add to your menu.

Here under the pages section, it shows all the pages we have on our site So If you want to see these pages Just go to your dashboard And then go into ‘pages’ And you can see the pages that you have on your site.

So the same pages will be shown ‘here’ Now if you want to add the ‘existing pages’ to your menu You just click that page, And it will be added to your new menu.

So, in the same way, we’ll add all the other pages And the ‘top right area of your site, you can see that your menu has been created with the pages that we selected.

So, now if you want to rearrange the pages that you have added Just drag & drop and change the order So Next, let’s see how you can add a page that is not on your site yet.

So if you want to add a brand new page, to your menu Just type the ‘name’, of the page, that you want to create in the “add new page”, 

So, for example, I’m going to create a page called ‘Course’ And then click add And It’ll be added. Now if we click ‘publish’ You can see that Course appears in your menu.

Now if we go to pages And click refresh You can see that a new “Course page” has been added Now since this is a new page it will be blank by default. 

You can add content to this page anytime, by clicking ‘edit’, so now you know, how you can add new pages to your menu Next, let’s see how you can create, a drop-down menu.

In the same way, you can add any number of items you want And you’ll get it in the dropdown menu.

So this is how you can create a dropdown menu on a WordPress website So, Now you know how you can add the pages you’ve created to your menu So that’s it, guys!
