Joomla Menu Re-Ordering

In Joomla, you can change the order that menu’s display in from the Dashboard. In this tutorial we will walk you through this modification.

Changing the Menu Order:

  1. Login to your Joomla Dashboard.
  2. Roll your mouse over Menus, and click the menu you want to modify. In my tests, I selected Main Menu:
    choose menu to edit
  3. You will see the menus listed in order of how they display on the page. Use the blue arrows to re-order or modify the menu location. As a test, I am moving the Example Pages link to the top.
    Here is the default menu order, notice the location of the Example Pages link:
    joomla menu

    Now, I will click the arrow next to Example Pages, until it is all the way on top. Each time you click the arrow, you will see a message stating “Ordering successfully saved.”:
    clicking arrows to reorder

    Once you have moved it to the top, refresh your website, and you will see the menu order has changed:

Congratulations, now you know how to Re-order the menu’s for Joomla, from the dashboard!
