I wrote this post called how to easily change your WordPress menu so that when I first started blogging I wouldn’t forget how to update the WordPress menu and add, change, or delete menu options. I’m referring to the menus on most web pages like: Home, About Me, Blog, Terms and Conditions, Privacy, Disclaimer, Contact Me, etc..
Note, since writing this blog post, my website has changed it’s name from Pinterest Artwork to PinArtwork.
Also, since first designing this blog, I’ve changed from designing my first blog and building Pinterest followers to the information that’s in the image below:
How to easily change your WordPress menu
I added a whole bunch of pins to my Pinterest site. I was extremely disappointed in the fact that after looking at my newly created pins they all had the same thing on there: Edit Post < My First Blog – WordPress (see below). Now in the after photo I am able to make the change so that it’s more meaningful to draw users to my Blog and Pinterest page.
I wrote down what I want to say: Pinterest Artwork – A blog about building my first blog and building up my Pinterest followers.
I scratched my head because I couldn’t remember easily for when and how to make that change. I remembered that it encompassed changing the site identity.
3 Easy steps:
- Go to Appearance.
- From there, select Customize
- Go to Site Identity and make your changes and publish.
Other things that can be changed on this page that you might want to change from time to time are:
- Menus (e.g. add a menu that wasn’t appearing earlier like Comments or FAQ).
- Homepage Settings (static or fixed)
- Additional CSS Settings (unless you know code fairly well, I’d leave this one alone).
For grins and giggles I added a header and logo to the front of my page to see what happens.
No problem on the logo portion, I’m pretty comfortable with that but it might require a little fine tuning.
The major problem is that when I add the header, there’s an option to crop the image. I cropped the image; however, after I cropped the image there’s no next button. I’m forced to select skip cropping. At least it will provide me with a before and after for one of my next post when I decide to update my header.
