How to Edit Menus

To edit the menu go to Site Admin (Dashboard) > Appearance > Menus or if you are in the front end (not in Dashboard – but signed in) > Roll over Cerrudo Services in Top Black Admin Bar > drop down will contain Menu link.

Be sure that you have the menu opened that you would like to edit – you will probably want to add a link to both menus (one is for the top menu the other is the same menu but shows up on tablets and phones).

  5. Click the Save Menu button once you’ve added all the menu items you want.
  6. Follow the previous 5 steps with each of the panels Clients and Categories.
  7. To add an external link (to another site), open the links panel, add the full url and the link label you would like it to show on the menu.

Customizing Menu Items

The Navigation Label
This field specifies the title of the item on your custom menu. This is what your visitors will see when they visit your site/blog.

  1. Click on the arrow in the top right-hand corner of the menu item to expand it.
  2. Enter the values for the Navigation Label and Title Attribute that you want to assign to the item.
  3. Click the Save Menu button to save your changes

Creating Multi-level Menus

When planning the structure of your menu, it helps to think of each menu item as a heading in a formal report document. In a formal report, main section headings (Level 1 headings) are the nearest to the left of the page; sub-section headings (Level 2 headings) are indented slightly further to the right; any other subordinate headings (Level 3, 4, etc) within the same section are indented even further to the right.

TheĀ  menu editor allows you to create multi-level menus using a simple ‘drag and drop’ interface. Drag menu items up or down to change their order of appearance in the menu. Drag menu items left or right in order to create sub-levels within your menu.

To make one menu item a subordinate of another, you need to position the ‘child’ underneath its ‘parent’ and then drag it slightly to the right.

Position the mouse over the ‘child’ menu item.
While holding the left mouse button, drag it to the right.
Release the mouse button.
Repeat these steps for each sub-menu item.
Click the Save Menu button in the Menu Editor to save your changes.
