Hi, I’m trying to create a drop-down menu bar on my homepage for each of my 2nd level topics, about 7 total. I’d like them to be under the header, horizontally across the page (like what you see on this page – HOME ADD-ONS SUPPORT etc.). However, I haven’t been able to figure out how to add drop-menus at all. At this point I don’t have any content on my site so I’m not sure if that makes a difference? Could you direct me how to do this (I’m using wordpress)?
Also, I created menus for each category, but there was an option to designate one primary menu and one secondary menu. I don’t know if that’s related. Do I need any kind of add-ons for this?

You can add drop menus by going to “Appearance > Menus”.
You simply have to add your items to the menu, then drag and drop them so they’re indented under their parent menu items.

Let me know if this helps or not 🙂November 13, 2014 at 5:47 am #46094Michael Loguidice
Thanks for you help! I’m still not sure if I’m even asking the right question. But what I’m looking to do is make a Horizontal Menu Bar, appearing just under the header. Each topic I cover on my site would be a drop-down menu, so I’d need to have about 7 listed horizontally. I’ve only managed to get 1 menu to appear horizontally. I’ve also noticed that the Theme Location allows for only 1 primary menu and 1 secondary menu. Does that mean only 1 menu can appear in the Horizontal Menu Bar for this theme? Would I need another add-on?
Maybe you can see my site and get an idea of what I mean? truehealthtruelife.com
Thanks again!November 13, 2014 at 10:25 am #46198TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
You should only have to use the Primary menu for the menu under the header.
We have a Secondary Nav addon if you want a second navigation.
Looking at your site, I see that you’ve only added one menu item – you can add more by select them on the left side of the “Appearance > Menus” area, and then clicking “Add to Menu”.
They will then appear in the area on the right – this is where you can drag and drop to order them, and indent the child menu items under the parent items (to create a dropdown).
That should achieve the effect that you’re looking for, if I’m understanding correctly ( I don’t always! 🙂 )November 14, 2014 at 6:34 pm #46394Michael Loguidice
That should do it Tom! Thanks so much, I’m a bit slow in figure out these basics. I appreciate your patience and quick repsonse!November 14, 2014 at 11:47 pm #46414TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperDecember 2, 2014 at 8:58 am #50657Jahidur
