WordPress 104: Custom Menus

In this episode I will show you how to use Custom Menus in WordPress.

It depends on the theme if and where menus show up, but the principle of adding items to a menu and how to order them are the same no matter which theme you use. Menus are a great way to let visitors see what your site has to offer, be that direct links to posts or pages, links to a whole category or custom links located on other websites.
