Creating Menus

Using the sidebar tabs, add items to the menu as needed. Common things to add to a newsletter menu would be Custom Links to external websites, Pages to other pages on the newsletter, or Categories if the Article Categories and Tags Add on is enabled.

Menus in the Navbar menu area also support dropdowns. To create a dropdown, indent the menu items by dragging/dropping them into place.  

Editing and Deleting Menu Items

To edit a menu, go to Appearance > Menus. Choose the menu you want to edit from the dropdown. You can add new menu items using the sidebar as explained above.

To delete a menu item, expand the tile and click the Remove link.

Menus can be used in widget areas such as in the Footer. Create a new menu and read the Footer page to learn how to add a menu widget.
