Now in the left part of the window under the Pages section, we will select the pages that we want to contain this menu. And then we create a clip in the option Add to menu, in the window we will see the Structure section of the menu and we can sort the order of them and then we create a clip in Save.



And at the bottom we will see the option Mark location and select which is a main menu. Now, if we go to our website and refresh the page, these menus will appear on the main page. But we also need to create a drop-down submenu and this is even easier to do than create menus.
