Creating a proper navigational experience for your visitors is going to be very important as you build out your website. In the early stages as you have few pages/posts on your website, it may not seem important but as your content grows, so does the complexity of your navigation.

In this video I am going to walk you through the following:

  • Where and how your pages show up naturally as you publish
  • Where to find the custom menu editor
  • How to create and manage custom menus
  • Adding a custom menu as the "main" menu
  • Utilizing custom menus within widgets
  • The importance of using custom menus

If you have any questions about custom menus or best practices in terms of navigation, please leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

OK, I am about to give up. I can't get this widget thing! Plus I think I screwed up on appearance. I do not know what is right or wrong anymore. My brain seems to be in shut down mode, there was smoke coming out of my ears and nostrils. Help please. Two days on this lesson. Sorry.

Hi lesabre,
I know it can be frustrating when we can not figure something out. It happens to me too. What I normally do is ask a question in live chat to see if anyone can help me, see if I can search online either on google or youtube, check to see if there is training on it and my final would be to step back and away for a few minutes and then come back and start it again. I hope this helps you out.
To your success

Thank you so much Renede. I am going to follow your advise. I feel it is taking me way too long to get my web site up and running. A bit disappointed in my self.

Kyle, as I was watching this video creating custom menus and such the thought occurred to me that there may be resources available online that focus on learning in depth how to utilize the WordPress as a TOOL. I am new and have only been using WordPress for the last 2 weeks or so. If a person can become skilled at using the platform that it will help them to develop their WA online system to build their business. Is there a place or two that might be useful to go in depth? Thanks.

Hi Kyle, is it possible to UNDO deleted widgets. I notice that you deleted the Archives widget. As I did the same, I noticed that it doesn't give you the option to UNDO the deletion. However I was able to press the back button, and the widget appears again. So is UNDOING deleted widgets possible?

I also had another image on the page for a visual, but it posted the video instead so I don't know what happened there??? It's still ok the things I want , just not sure about the placement of them..
But hey this is AWESOME! I'm loving this platform, love it love it! Thanks Kyle, GREAT TUTS!
