Your Imagely theme includes a Header Menu area and a Footer Menu area.

  • Header Navigation Menu: will display in the site header next to the site header image or logo.
  • Footer Navigation Menu: will display below the site footer. Note: For some themes, the footer
    won't be visible on the home page to make it look clean.

Manage Menu Locations

  • Go to Appearance > Menus and create your menus.
  • Add your menu items and then save the menu.
  • The default navigation areas can be enabled or disabled under Appearance > Menus > Manage Locations.


  • Use the drop-downs to select a menu you created.
  • To disable the Navigation Menu locations, set to the Select a Menu option in the dropdowns.
  • You can also adjust those options while editing your menu.
    It will be visible under "Menu Settings".
