How to Add Pages or Links to Menus

There are four “Menus” in the USNACCCG Theme:

  1. Top Left Tabs –
  2. Top Right Tabs –
  3. LeftSidebar Menu –
  4. Footer Social Media Links –

Menu items can link to an existing page or post OR link to an outside URL or link to your mail client.  Most of the menu operations are fairly straight forward EXCEPT the social media buttons in the footer.

To see all the available options for menu items, you will need to expose additional information on the menu admin page.  On the site Dashboard follow through to Appearance then click on Menus.  Then in the upper-right-hand corner of the editor, click on Screen Options to Show advanced menu properties that are enabled.

You can easily add new pages or pages that do not appear in any menu or add links to outside websites to menus.
