Go down to “pages”, click on “add new”. First we want to have a page called “home”. Choose “publish”. Click on “add new”. This site is about health so we want to have a page about fruit. Click on “publish”. Choose another one “add new”.
Now we want to have vegetables, click on “publish”. Add another one. This is about health. Click on “publish”. Now we are going to add a contact page. Click on “add new”. Type in “Contact”, click on “publish”. This is for the main menu. We are going to have a top navigation menu. Click on “add new”, “add new page”, type “About us”, click on “publish”. The pages are done. Now we are going to create a menu. Go to “appereance”, choose menus. This is where yo can create a menu. Type in menu name. This is the main menu. The name is only for you.
