Navigation Menu

Navigation menu (also known as navigation bar, menu, or main menu) is a section of the site which helps visitors to navigate in the site. It contains the links to important sections of the site. Typically, one site will have one navigation menu, while some navigation menus are divided into primary and secondary menus respectively. It is essential to have a neat and simplified navigation menu, so as not to confuse visitors. By default, WordPress adds all the pages created to the menu. However, customization of menu is possible, such as including a link to a category or to external site. The guide for navigation menu customization is as provided. You may change the order of pages, delete pages from menu or create a drop-down menu.
