To see how to create a basic menu in wordpress please see my earlier tutorial here

If you want to create a top level menu item that doesn’t go anywhere, and is not clickable but then shows the options below. Here are the steps to follow.

For an example of this on my menu on this website if you click on or hover on Services it is not clickable but it shows the drop down menu.

Go to your dashboard

Select Appearance – menu

If you have not set up your menus here please see here for how to do this

  • In the Label option add what you want to call the menu item e.g. Test
  • Click on Add to menu
  • And then click on Save menu on the right
