In this tutorial we are going to show you how to choose a menu style and set it up.

Choosing the menu style

To change the menu style, open up the Main Menu tab in the customiser.

Once you are on the Main Menu tab you will see the menu style option. From the drop-down list, select either Split menu or Pop-out menu.

Split menu

If you have selected the Split menu style, you don’t need to configure any more settings on this page. However, you will need set up two menus; one for the left menu and one for the right menu.

For more information on how these menus work and how to set them up, check out this tutorial.

Pop-out menu

If you have selected the pop-out menu, you have the option to display your logo, an image and some text along side the main menu.

On the Main Menu tab in the customiser you will see the options to upload the logo, add in the text and upload an image that will sit beside the text.

You’ll also need to set up the menu itself. To learn how to do this, we recommend checking out our menu guide for this theme.
