This tutorial will help you with setting up the main menu regardless of what WordPress theme you use (at the majority of them, I’m sure there’s an exception somewhere). The theme I’m currently loving is the DIVI theme by Elegant themes. Of course, they’re some great free themes and other premium themes. As always, I highly suggest watching some tutorials, trying out some demos + ultimately choosing what works best for you and your business!
Add a main menu to your WordPress site (step by step):
Start by clicking on the upper left hand corner where it says “Dashboard”. Then on your left hand sidebar, choose “Appearance” -> then “menus”
You’l l then click the upper right hand corner button that says ‘create new’ and add a name to your menu. I’d suggest keeping it simple + clear: Main or Main Menu.
Select the pages on the left hand side and click ‘Add to menu”.
You can change the order by clicking and drag n dropping the selected page to where you’d like it. The order goes from top to bottom and shows up left to right in the main navigation bar.
Click ‘SAVE’ + refresh your page to see it updated.
*Make sure that the ‘primary menu’ is selected on the bottom of the page if it hasn’t yet been.
