Follow the Instructions

If you prefer to follow with screenshots, go to Dashboard >> Appearance >> Menus

In these screenshots I’m using a menu which I’ve named “top”. I intend to use this as the menu on top of the page and I like to name things so that they’re easy to follow

To the left you see the available items for the menu. Your theme may have more, or less, available items but the setup is the same

Click on the little button next to Links to open it up

home-link-3

Add the link, remember it must be the full URL. To remind you, WordPress has already written in the beginning of the link. Fill in the link text

home-link-4

Press Add to Menu to add the link to the menu. Drag and Drop the link to where you want it.

I’m going to make this menu display across the top of the site. So I tick the Primary Navigation box

Don’t forget to save the menu
