How to Design and Code a Product Landing Page – Part 7

Continuing on in Part 7 of “How to Design and Code a Product Landing Page”, I begin adding content from our design to the WordPress theme.

To start I make preparations to begin adding and optimizing our theme for the dynamic menus which WordPress offers for free. These menus act almost like widgets which allow you to add pages, posts, custom links and more. You can add as many menus as you like as well as display them in almost any part of your theme depending on your skill level with WordPress and PHP.

Displaying Custom Menus

To get custom menus to display we need to modify the functions.php file inside our theme. In doing so you can create as many dynamic menus as you like.

Displaying a menu in a theme is relatively simple. I make use the wp_nav_menu() method. Passing the menu’s id and location inside your WordPress install is the minimum you need to get a menu to display.
