Step 1 ) The following image shows you the site running Twenty Sixteen theme with no menu added on the top right hand side. This is where the theme adds the menu when added.


Note: The above image is based on Twenty Sixteen theme. If you are using a different theme, then the display will be different.

Step 3 ) The following image shows you how to add a menu to your site. You need to first type a Menu Name before you can begin.
