Creating Wordpress Menus The Correct Way With Any Wordpress Theme
I have been doing most of my web design work now in Wordpress and it seems that Wordpress offers the best API and non-technical interface of the three big content management systems, namely Joomla and Drupal.
I have seen a lot of Wordpress blogs and websites where people who know HTML hard-code the menus and that is not efficient, because eventually, it will take more work and programming to make your menus clean and easy to maintain.
In this video, I show you how to do all of the following:
- Register a new menu in your Wordpress theme.
- Add any menu to that theme location using the regular Wordpress menu administative interface.
- How to add that new menu to your new theme location, of your choice, using a simple PHP command.
The Wordpress functions you will need to know, and I show you in this video, are:
In this video, I also show you how to style your new menu items with your theme's style.css stylesheet file.
Keep in mind, that you will only need to do this one and it will save you a LOT of work in the short and long run.
Enjoy the video and if you need any help, please ask for assistance in the comments of this hub. I am here to support my readers.
