It is important to set your theme menu in the WordPress Dashboard. To do this, locate the Menu options by selecting the ‘Appearance’ tab from the dashboard sidebar and then “Menus”.

Once you’re viewing the Menus, create a new menu and save it. After you’ve saved the menu, you can add it to a ‘Theme Location’ via the ‘Menu Settings’, below the ‘Menu Structure’ area.

Add your pages and links to the menu you just created in the ‘Menu Structure ‘area. You can then order them using the drag and drop interface. Finally, click ‘Save Menu’ to save your changes.

Theme Locations

The Maillard theme has two ‘Theme Locations’ where your navigation menus can be placed.

Primary Menu

The ‘Primary Menu’ displays to the right of the site title and description (or logo).

Above Header Menu

The ‘Above Header Menu’ displays above the site title (or logo) and features a black background by default.
