Now that we’ve covered the basics behind menus in Drupal, you may want to begin creating your own custom menu. There are a few steps involved in creating your own custom menu and they are covered in this two part article. The first thing you need is a basic menu structure. As this is a base structure it does not display on your page until you add menu items to it. Think of it more as an empty box that needs to be filled with menu items later.

Creating a menu in Drupal 7:

  1. Log into your Drupal 7 dashboard
  2. Click Structure >> Menus
  3. To add a New menu click Add menu
  4. Fill in the Title and Description fields for the menu. The description field will display in the admin dashboard under the menu list, but it does not display any information to site visitors.drupal_create_menu_2
  5. Click Save. You have now created the menu structure in Drupal 7. 

This concludes Part 1 of our tutorial. Now that the basic menu is created, we will want to flesh it outadding menu items to fill out your menu and then place it somewhere in our theme so it displays to our visitors.  If you need further assistance please feel free to ask a question on our support center.
