What are my options for customizing the navigation of my site?

The WordPress theme provides a few options for adding links to your site, and customizing how visitors navigate and find information. Refer to the example image and descriptions below:



  1. Top Navigation Menu - Navigation of your choosing may be added to the top menu. When the mouse is rolled over a main navigation item, secondary pages will appear and may be selected by the website visitor.
  2. Left Widgets - A left Widget is a fancy word for a tool or content area that you can add, arrange, and remove from the left-side of the main content on a page.
  3. Right Widgets - Same as Left Widgets, but on the right-side of a page's main content.
