Creating Your Own Custom Drop Down Menus
First thing first
Before we go creating our custom drop down menus it is important to get a general understanding for the kind of menus we can create for our WordPress websites. Have ing this understanding from the beginning serves multiple purposes.
The more you understand how the menu structure works, the better you will be able to plan your site and basic layout. It will also help you target your theme searches for themes that have the capability to create the dropdown menus you require. Thus saving you time searching through the thousands of themes available.
What are the menu options?
There are 3 kinds of menu items we can create that are found in the menus section under the Appearance tab in the back office of your WordPress site.
Pages will link you to your individual pages you have created for your site, links are for external URLs, while categories will link to the difference categories you have created for your posts. An important reason why you should always make sure your categories are well organised.
Any of the 3 options are available to used in your dropdown menu, and organizing it is as simple as dragging and dropping your menu items into place once you have added them to the your main menu structure.
