A navigation menu is a list of links to other pages on your website, which can be displayed at the top or bottom of your page.

What is a Navigation Menu in WordPress?

A navigation menu is a list of links that leads to different pages on your website. It can be a list of links to the main pages of your site, or it could also be used for internal linking within parent themes or child themes.

The most common use for nav menus is as an alternative method for creating submenus in WordPress, which are lists of content items below each other on the same page and organized into categories (or “levels”).

How to Remove or Delete a Navigation Menu in WordPress

To remove a menu item, you must first find the menu item you want to delete. You can do this by accessing your WordPress dashboard and clicking on “Menus” in the left-hand sidebar. Then scroll down until you see all of your menus, along with any submenus that have been created for them.

If there are no submenus visible, then click on “Add New Menu” at the top-right corner of this page and enter a name for your new menu. Next, click on “Add” again so that it appears as an option (this will become more clear when we discuss creating our own custom menus). Now look at what type of icon appears below each item under its respective header title: if there is none then we need another way around this problem!

To create a navigation menu, you need to add pages to it. Once you have added the page slug of your content, go to Appearance > Menus and click Add New Menu at the top right corner of your screen. Enter a name for this new menu (I’ll call mine “Home”) and choose whether or not it’s public or private (the latter will only be accessible through logged in users). Then click Save Menu Button at bottom right corner when done setting up your new menu!
