To add a new menu:

  1. Log in to the Joomla! Administrator back end.
  2. Click Menus > Menu Manager on the toolbar menu. The Menu Manager screen opens.
  3. Click the New toolbar button. The New/Edit Menu screen opens.
  4. Complete the fields as required:
    • Unique Name: The identification name used by Joomla! to identify this menu. It must be unique. Spaces are not recommended.
    • Title: A proper title for the menu. This is used to identify the menu in the Menu Manger and is also used as the menu title when displayed in the Front end.
    • Description: A description of the menu, useful for your own reference.
    • Module Title: The title that will be given to the mod_mainmenu module in the Module Manager. If left blank, a module will not be created and you will not be able to show this menu in the front-end. This will only be displayed when creating a new menu.
  5. Click the Save toolbar button to create the new menu.
    • To leave without saving click the Closetoolbar button.
