In this exercise, we’ll add a Related Links menu item. This can be broken into two stages:
Adding the custom menu
Adding in the menu items
Add the custom menu
Go to the menu administration page – /admin/structure/menu - and click on the Add menu link at the top of the page.
Type in the name of our menu in the Title field: Related Links
Type in a menu description in the Administrative summary field. While the description is optional, it helps site administrators understand the different menus, especially if the site has lots menus.
Click Save to create the new menu.
Add menu items to the related links menu
Now that you’ve created the custom menu, you need to add in the links to existing pages. You can do this in one of two ways:
Adding links to the menu when you edit the specific content pages/section
Adding the items manually via the menu interface
Add Related links menu option to Basic page content type
Go to Structure → Content types → Standard page and click Edit
Scroll down to “Menu settings”. Under Available menus, enable Related links
Click Save content type
Add several new Basic pages to build menu links
Add content using the Standard Page content type and create the following new pages:
Make sure you select "Provide a menu link" and select the parent item "Related links" for all pages
Go to Structure → Menus → Related links. Click the List links tab. The new pages you created now appear in this admin area.
You can also add the links manually by following these steps:
In the menu administration page, click Add link at the top of the Related links. At the menu link creation page type in these settings:
Link: type About and select About us
Description: Jobs Posting About Us page
Title: About us (2)
Leave the other settings at their defaults and click Save
Repeat the steps above for any remaining menu items
Finally, you can re-order the links on your menu.
Go to Structure → Menus to see a list of all your site’s menus
Click on Edit menu to the right of the Related Links menu entry. You should see a list of the menu items we just created.
You can drag and drop the menu items to re-order them. Then click Save configuration.
Note: Another way to change the menu order is to change the ‘weight’ of the menu item when you’re editing the content.
