How to make a Drop-Down Menu in Thesis. (6)

1. Open a WordPress site that uses Thesis.

2. Click “Dashboard” at the top left. The Dashboard page opens with a menu on the left.

3. Go down the menu and click on the small down arrow on the right of “Appearance” that exists near the bottom of the menu.

4. A menu appears that shows – Themes, Widgets, Menus, and Editor.

5. However, when opening Dashboard, the details of the Appearance menu may already show.

6. Click “Menus” and a page called “Menus” opens.

7. The second column from the left shows the heading “Menus”. It has four sections called – Theme Locations, Custom Links, Pages, and Categories.

8. The page section shows the following three options on the next row – Most Recent, View All, and Search.

9. Most recent shows a list of the most recent pages added to the site. View All shows all the pages.

10. Search opens a panel that allows the entry of a page name to find that page.

11. The third column shows the heading “Nav menu”.  It shows a series of panels with the name of a page in each panel. Select a page (Page B) to appear in a drop-down menu.

12. Place the cursor in the panel and drag the panel to an appropriate location – immediately below Page A that will actually show in the list of pages in the actual site. Place the cursor on the panel of Page B and move about an inch to the right.

13. Click either of the “Save Menu” panels that exist on the far right of the page at the top and the bottom of the page.  This action will make Page B appear below Page A on the actual site provided a User moves the cursor over Page A.

14. Open the actual site to check that the drop-down menu exists.

15. Note a drop-down menu can have many pages below the main page.
