9.1. Editing Menus

Accessing the Menu System

See 9. Menu Overview.

Note that you can have several menus listed, but only one is “Currently set to: Primary Menu.” This is the one that is active on your LibPress site as the Main Menu. Only the Primary Menu can be viewed in the Customizer as you edit it.

To change the Primary Menu to a different one, select the one you want and scroll to the bottom–here you can select the Menu Locations. Note that the Footer Menu acts as a site map and appears at the bottom of the website (sometimes it does not appear if you have opted to remove this from your site.)

Removing an Item

After selecting the menu that is labelled Primary

From the item list, scroll down to the item you want to remove. Click on the down arrow next to the item name and select Remove.

The item will disappear from the list, but is not removed from the menu until you click on the Save & Publish button at the top of the item list.

Adding a Page Item

From the item list, scroll down to the bottom and pick the +Add Items button. A secondary side panel will open to the right with the list of items you can add.

The default is usually Pages.

The most recently added pages will be displayed first. Click on the + next to the page you want to add. The item is added to the bottom of the menu list. (It doesn’t appear? Make sure you’re editing the Primary Menu!) NOTE: Pages have to be created and published for them to appear in the page list.

 

One quick feature: if you want to add a page link in the menu, but it hasn’t been created yet, you can do this by typing in a title in the area where it says Add New Page and clicking +Add.

Remember, you need to go back to that page to add content, and apply all the relevant settings such as Page Attributes.

 

Click on the page item and drag it to where you would like it in the menu, taking note of which level you are placing it based on where it is indented (see 9 Menu Overview for information).

When you are finished, scroll to the top of the item list and use the Save & Publish button.

Adding a Custom Link Item

Follow instructions above, but Select Custom Links. Input the URL and Link Text (Menu Label).

Click on the link item and drag it to where you would like it in the menu, taking note of which level you are placing it based on where it is indented. When you are finished, scroll to the top of the item list and use the Save & Publish button.

Adding Other Items

You can also add other items such as Events and Post. The procedure for these is the same as for adding Page items.
