WordPress Menus – More Powerful Than You Might Think!

Creating WordPress menus or sub menus to external pages without utilizing WordPress pages or a plugin is not a secret but many people don’t realize that you can do this so I hope this demonstration will succeed in showing you how easy it is.

The Main Points

The great thing with WordPress menus is that they are flexible enough that you can have your cake and eat it!

To Create a sub menu of external links without using WordPress pages:

  • Go to Posts -> Categories from your WordPress dashboard.
  • Create a category with a suitable name for your menu.
  • Go to Appearance -> Menus
  • Choose the menu category you created and add to menu

Wordpress menus - Category

  • Now you can create external link items:

Wordpress menus - Links

  • Line them up appropriately and save the menu. It should look similar to this:

Wordpress menus - lined up

I recommend you use a WordPress page instead of a category for the main menu item and add the same menu options within it as I think it looks tidier and offers another option.

Wordpress menus - Page

The finished result in the above example looks like this:

Sub menu 5
