How To Create WordPress Menus For External Pages

Wordpress menus

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
  • Now you can create external link items:
  • Line them up appropriately and save the menu. It should look similar to this:

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. READ MORE

All About URL Trackers

URL trackers, what are they?

If you are doing any kind of online marketing and you want to know what’s going on with your campaigns then this is an important and very useful tool to use.

A URL tracker is a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) or if you like, an indirect web link that is used to count the number of times a link is clicked.

Why would you want to do this?
