    Hi,

    Firstly, thank you for your amazing theme!

    My issue relates to correctly placing my posts in the correct menu (drop downs).

    For example, my 2nd post “Thank you 2017, Hello 2018” needs to come under the menu Personal, but I can’t find the correct option when drafting to have that post come under that menu/drop down option. Is there a way to modify this? I don’t want the post to only be on the home page.

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Hi there,

    You’ll need to manually add that link using the Menu page. Copy the link to the post, go to Customize > Menus > Primary menu and add a Custom Link with the URL to the post, as seen here. Then, you can drag that link under the Personal menu item, as seen here.

    Thank you, that was helpful.

    However, I don’t think I clearly explained my issue.

    What I want to do is when I click a header menu, like “Personal”, is to have the relevant blog posts appear on that page, in that sub-menu as opposed to having it in the drop down.

    Is that possible?

    Thanks again.

    Hi Larry,

    Sorry for the misunderstanding! Yes, you can definitely do that. Instead of adding a page called Personal to your menu, you’ll want to add categories to your menu. When you are editing your menu, you’ll see a menu item for Categories, as seen here. Add the Personal category from here to your menu. Then, when you click Personal, you will see all the posts from the Personal category.

    Let me know if you need any more explanation on that, happy to help!
