Navigation / Menu Setup

Voice uses the standard WordPress menu system for navigation. In order to setup your menus, go to Appearance -> Menus. Please note that certain items, like Posts, are hidden by default in the Screen Options so make sure you have checked it.

You simply need to create your menu and drag and drop pages you want to show. After the menu is created, you need to assign this menu to a specific theme location. Voice theme provides five different theme locations to assign your menus:

  • Main Navigation – This is your main menu navigation.
  • Top Navigation – This is a secondary menu you can optionally use in header top bar.
  • Social Menu – This is a menu where you should put links to your social profiles. Note that you just need to specify a custom link to your social page i.e. http://facebook.com/link-to-your-page and the Facebook icon will be automatically displayed.
  • Footer Menu – Another secondary menu you can use in the footer/copyright area at the bottom of your website.
  • 404 Menu – Optionally, you can specify another menu to be displayed on your 404 page and point visitors to some useful resources on the website.

Below is an example of a simple menu assigned to Main Navigation:
