In this WordPress post, I will teach you how you can add a new menu to your WordPress site.
First of all, what is a WordPress Menu?
Navigation-Menus, or simply Menus, is a WordPress theme feature that allows users to create navigation menus by using a built-in Menu Editor.
Navigation menus allow theme designers to let users create custom menus of their own. The default menu will just list the current WordPress Pages. WordPress supports multiple menus so a theme can have support for more than one navigational menu (e.g. header and footer menus). Users can add posts, pages, and custom links to a menu using drag and drop functionality.– wpbeginners.com
