    I’d like to change a few things in my Navigation menu quickly.

    First I’d like to create Categories so that visitors could quickly find different posts on my blog.
    Secondly I’d like to create a drop-down for all “disclaimers” on my blog: Privacy, Affiliate Disclosure, Health Disclaimer so I would have all disclaimers in one place.

    What’s the best way to implement these changes?

    Hi Luke,

    If you’re looking to set up categories for your posts, this article might be helpful: https://www.siteground.com/tutorials/wordpress/use-categories/#:~:text=To%20create%20new%20categories%20in,then%20press%20Add%20New%20Category.

    With regards to adding Categories as Menu Items, you should be able to do it through Appearance > Menus.

    For example: https://share.getcloudapp.com/QwuLBxAW

    With regards to creating a Parent Menu item which would hold sub-menu items, you can create a custom link with URL set to #.

    Example: https://share.getcloudapp.com/5zuLbW9z

    Then after adding this Menu item, kindly add the actual pages you wish to add as sub-menu items as well.

    Now, drag the sub-menu items so that it would be under the “Disclaimers” menu item as such: https://share.getcloudapp.com/12ugQ90N

    Ok, thanks. But can you tell me how to add a new Page to my Navigation menu? For example I need a new Page called Categories and a new page called Disclaimers. Then I will need to create a drop-down for Categories and for Disclaimers.

    Hi Luke,

    Here is a short screen recording I made which you can follow to create these menu items: https://share.getcloudapp.com/JruOmAdv

    If you wish to create an actual Page instead of a custom link, you may do so through Pages > Add New.

    Hope this clarifies. Feel free to reach out if further assistance is needed. 🙂

    Thanks a lot. This video was very helpful. One last thing. I have already created the Categories tab. However I would like to change the name of certain categories. For example the category Life I would like to change to Miscelleaneous; Best Quotes About Life to Quotes; Manifesting Abundance to Manifesting; and Yoga Meditation to Yoga.

    What is the best way to do it?

    You may modify Categories by going to Posts > Categories in your admin dashboard as such: https://share.getcloudapp.com/P8u1DdAJ

    Hope this clarifies. 🙂
