Hi Guys, Welcome to our Continuous series named Be a Blogger Series & this article is about Adding Menus in WordPress!
It is obvious to any website that the key is to get visitors to navigate easily. This is done with the help of Menus. Menus are usually links to other parts of the website or even completely different sites which allow great navigation options for someone visiting a blog.
In Blogger.com we can show menus with the help of Gadgets. This is done by editing the theme layout but showing menus in sidebar columns of the theme.
WordPress 3.0 provides a new feature Menus under Appearance which helps up to create navigation Menus for pages, categories and links.
Note : In a single created menu you can add Pages, Categories and Custom Links.
You can also add menu in your sidebar. You just need to add Custom Menu widget. For details about Managing widgets in WordPress.
In Blogger we can add navigation menus in the theme with gadgets and similarly we can add navigation menus in WordPress with the help of Widgets. But WordPress has recently added the new menu option which allows creating new menus to navigate your blog.
