How to Edit Website Menu
The default pages of this store are Home, About Us, Shop and Contact Us. These pages show up in the header menu with the same name. Whenever a new page is created on the website using the Add button it gets automatically added up to the header menu.

How to Add Menu Bar items
Using this Add button, let’s create a Services section on our website for illustration purposes. Click on the New page radio button, give the page a name (title) and you can choose to show this page on the Header menu, or on the Footer menu or on both. Click on Create page.
Now use the steps we discussed in How to edit Home page to add sections to your Services page.
How to Add Drop Down Menu
You can also create a drop down menu that contains sub menu items (pages) underneath it. The Header section is the only place where the drop down menu can be displayed.
Once you have created a drop down menu, you can drag new or existing pages to this menu to make them sub menu items. You can also create a menu that links to an external website.
How to Add Footer Menu – How to Add Legal Pages Menu
Now using this approach, let’s create some legal pages for our website. Legal pages are necessary for regulatory requirements and for 3rd party service integration compliance requirements.
Let’s just create a Terms & Conditions page using which you can create other pages. In the Pages menu on the right, click on Add. Give this page a name and click on Show in Footer. Click Create Page.
It’s always better to display the legal pages in the Footer menu. Once you have created a page you can click on the Add section to use a text widget to display the conditions. Refer Fig 01 – 02 in how to edit home page
Reorder Menu Bar Items
In the next window, you can see a list of all the default pages, new pages and menu we created. You can use the “=” in front of any menu to reorder the menu or make it a sub menu item.
The Terms & Conditions menu is now displayed in the Footer.
