Customize Your Navigation Menus

In your WordPress dashboard, click on Appearance > Menus or Appearance > Customize > Menus.

The My Community Pro theme has three menu locations.

  • The Header Menu in the center of the site header is used for site navigation.
  • The Footer Menu in the footer is used for Privacy Policy, Terms of Service, and Contact page links.
  • The Social Menu appears in the right of the site header, and has the social / search menu.

These menus were created during One-Click Theme Setup and set to the correct locations, but you can create a new menu or edit them.

  • Click the Add to Menu (#4) button.
  • In section #5, hover over the menu item until it becomes a crosshairs, and then drag your menu items into the position you want.
