How to Add Footer Menu in WordPress

To add a footer menu in WordPress, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your WordPress Dashboard.
  2. Navigate to “Appearance” and then click on “Menus.”
  3. In the “Menus” screen, click on the “Create a new menu” link.
  4. Give your menu a name (e.g., “Footer Menu”) and click the “Create Menu” button.
  5. Now, you’ll see various options on the left-hand side to add items to your menu. You can add Pages, Posts, Custom Links, Categories, etc.
  6. Select the items you want to include in your footer menu and click the “Add to Menu” button.
  7. After adding the items, you can rearrange their order by dragging and dropping them.
  8. To create sub-menus, drag a menu item slightly to the right, and it will become a sub-item under the previous menu item.
  9. Once you have arranged the menu items as you like, look for the “Display location” or “Menu Settings” section usually located at the bottom of the menu editor.
  10. In the “Display location” section, check the box next to “Footer Menu” or the desired location where you want the menu to appear.
  11. Click the “Save Menu” button to save your footer menu.

Now, your footer menu should be visible on your website’s footer area. The exact steps may vary slightly depending on your theme and version of WordPress, but the general process should be similar. If your theme doesn’t have a designated footer menu location, you might need to edit your theme’s template files or use a custom widget area to display the footer menu.
