For creating a menu you would want to go under Appearance, Menus in your WordPress admin dashboard. While you may have one already, we will be creating a new one for this specific tutorial.
There are many built-in options for the menu such as pages, published posts, custom links, or categories as options. The list of what you’ve added will be a top to bottom list but the display of the menu depends on your specific theme.
If you would like to create a dropdown menu you would drag the menu item beneath the menu item you would like it beneath and it should appear indented beneath the menu item.
Categories added in the menu area will list the posts in that specific category the same as if it was on your posts/blog page.
Custom menu items are normally for linking to your social media profiles but there are other options available depending on what you would like in your menu.
Finally, if you’re interested in making a more complex menu you would want to take a look at our guide on creating a mega menu.
