What is a Navigation Menu?

A navigation menu helps users switch between pages on your Journal, for example, you might have an ‘About’ page that you want users to navigate to.

Adding A Page To The Menu

Before you begin...

  • Beware that all Journal themes behave differently. Creating a menu in your Journal theme may not be identical to the process outlined below.
  • Make sure you that you have created at least two pages that you wish to display in your menu.

Once you have everything you need:

  1. Start by visiting your Journal and then clicking 'Customise' in the top navigation bar.

  2. From the menu on the left, click 'Menus'. If you do not see 'Menus' then, unfortunately, your theme will not be compatible with this guide.
