The navigation menu, more simply called menu, is a feature related to the WordPress theme. It allows users to create navigation menus on their site from Appearance > Menus.

It is necessary to think carefully about the structure of the menus you want to set up because they will determine the fluidity of the navigation on your site. A bad management risks to make your visitors flee if they do not easily find what they are looking for. It is therefore also better to focus on simplicity.

In addition to the main menu, it is possible to create customized menus in the widget areas. Some themes offer menus in other places, such as in the footer.

The elements that can be used to create a menu are pages, custom links, categories. Posts too, but this is a very bad practice.
