You can check it out below. There are a few simple steps to creating a custom menu. The very first thing you need to understand is where to find the Menu management section within your WordPress admin area. Beneath the Appearance, click the Menus sub proceeding. This will take you to the custom menu originator. Under the left tab, you are going to see a post’s section.

Posts aren’t added to your navigation by default, so you are going to need to click on the Post tab and it will show a list of your Posts. In this case, we have only created the About Me post. Click on the check package associated with this, and then click the Add to Menu.

Your About Me page has been put into your menu structure (as shown below).

After you have done this, you are going to want to include your newly created menu to your internet site, to override the Main Menu on your site. You are going to visit the new tabs created once you’ve created your new menu called “Manage Locations”. You should click this tab, and then under the “Main Menu” item you will choose the menu you just created, in this case it is called “Main Menu”. After doing that click Save Changes. For example purposes, here’s what my live website looks like with my up to date menu newly. You can see the order of the menu items and that my “About Kyle” post comes before the “ONLINE PRIVACY POLICY” post. And we are done.
