Create Menu  Add Menu Items  Add Menu Icons

The menu requires a little bit of configuration in order to work properly. There are 3 menu locations that are leveraged by the University of Utah WordPress theme, the primary menu in the left fly out menu, the menu in the footer, as well as an optional navigation menu underneath the main menu in the left fly out. This tutorial will teach you how to create a new menu, set its location and then add icons to the left fly out menu.

CREATE THE MENU AND SET THE MENU LOCATION


Once you've installed the theme one of the first things you'll need to do is create the global menus for the right fly out menu and the footer menu. In order to do this you'll need to create the menu and assign it a location.

From the WordPress dashboard of your site, navigate to 'Appearance' → 'Menus.'

Click the "create a new menu" link. You can name it whatever you like.

 

 

Next you'll need to assign the new menu to a location. The University of Utah WordPress theme supports three menu locations, the main navigation fly-out menu, the footer menu and the global sub-navigation location just below the main navigation in the fly-out.
