In WordPress Menu, the latest of my WordPress Theme Customization series of training courses, I show you step by step how to get the most out of your menus, create custom linking in the footer, utilize a lightbox for less essential links, and make your site more mobile responsive.

This latest WordPress Theme Customization course walks through a real life site and shows you the exact steps to take to make your menu and your site respond to your liking and specific needs, whatever they are.

Not only do I walk you through menu setup, customization and design, I show you a lot of tricks and tips in between to make your WordPress site easier for you to manage and easier for users to use!

I show you how to create your first menu, how to place it in the right spot, how to nest menu items, how to create a lightbox function for certain links, and much more.

Part of making a WordPress site really easy to use and operate is allowing for the co-existence of your standard "website" and a "blog". I show you how to make your blog operate in conjuction with your normal site functions while keeping things organized and easy to use on both ends...user and web admin.

This course is perfect for the beginner who knows nothing about WordPress menus, or even the intermediate who needs a few things cleared up.

I answer questions like:

How do I create a "Blog" menu item that shows my blog posts in order?

How do I create direct links to Blog posts in my menu?

How do I make things like a Privacy Policy or other "legal" links appear inside a lightbox like an image would, so users aren't taken to a separate page?

How do I customize the mobile responsiveness of my site beyond the theme's capabilities?

I want certain content to appear for iPhones and different to appear for PC, how do I do that?

How do I just create a solid menu with all the function and tweaks that I want?

and MUCH more!

This course, as with all my Theme Customization courses, is designed to make your learning easy, enjoyable and fun. Although it's designed for the beginner, I know many intermediate users who find it extremely useful as well.

If you have any questions about this course or any of my other WordPress Theme Customization courses, please don't hesitate to ask me! I love hearing from current or future students and doing what I can to help.

Poet, Writer, Consultant

I'm a poet and a writer, and truly an artist at heart. I've always had a knack for figuring out technical things however, and have held several jobs as a technology consultant.

Since 2009 I've run a consulting firm in Chattanooga TN helping small businesses implement and leverage technology and the web. In 2005 I became involved in Internet Marketing, successfully starting several websites and blogs since.

I'm highly experienced in Wordpress, PHP, HTML, and Linux Server implementations. I also have experience and a broad understanding of CSS, JavaScript, and most web based technologies being used today.

My expertise in consulting and technology is teaching and helping the beginner.
