This includes the details of each individual menu's number of items published, unpublished, trashed and names of linked modules.

The process for adding a menu to the site is normally as follows:

  1. Create a new menu (using this screen)
  1. Create one or more new menu items on the menu. Each menu item will have a specific menu item type
  1. Create one or more menu modules to display the menu on the site. When you create the modules, you will select which menu items (pages) the modules will show on.

  • It is expedient to give a descriptive title for new menus because, later, you will see it in the Menus menu. It is a good idea to fill in the Description field with information about the menu. If you enter a short title in the Title field, you can identify the menu's module using that title in the Module Manager.
  • Though you can create a copy of a selected Module by clicking the Duplicate toolbar button, you can make another instance in the Module Manager as well.
  • When you create a new menu, use only English alphanumeric characters without space in the Unique Name field. It is a good idea using only a-z, 0-9 and underscore (_) characters. Please read the tooltips as well.
  • If you don't enter a Module title, no module will be created and the menu cannot be displayed in the front end. However you can use the Module Manager later to create a new menu module, and assign it to the menu.
  • If you delete an existing menu, do not forget that all the menu items of the respective menu will be also deleted.
  • The Main Menu has your default menu item, so it should not be deleted. The default menu item defines the page that is displayed when you visit, and your site will not function if it is deleted. It is usually your Home menu item but it can be set to any menu item including a menu item in a hidden menu. If you change the default menu item, make sure that you don't delete that menu item either! The menu with the default menu item is marked with a star (*) in the Menus menu.
