Menu Manager

What is the Menu Manager?

The 'Menu Manager' allows you to create and manage all of your navigational menus. If your site has a small number of articles, you can simply just use the default Joomla 'Main Menu'.

How do I create a new Menu?

If you want to grow your site beyond the 'Main Menu' navigation, you may want to create new menus in different positions on your site.

Creating new menus in your Joomla site gives you the opportunity to have them appear in different positions on your site. ex. top, left sidebar, right sidebar and bottom etc....  This gives you great flexibility to grow your site to create new sections on your site as the number of articles and other content grows.

  • Go to the menu 'Menu' > 'Menu Manager' > 'Add New Menu'.
  • Give your new 'Menu' a title
  • Give the 'Menu Type' a name (no spaces). This is the system name of the menu.
  • Add a description (optional)
