Creating Menus Showing Images

Heads up! Make sure Menu Image is installed first!

Please make sure you have Menu Image installed and activated before editing your menus. If you haven’t already done so, you still can install this plugin before proceeding to the following steps.

Create a New Menu

First, please go to “Appearance > Menus” and create a new menu. You can add any object that you want to this menu. For a detailed tutorial about menu creation, please read the following post:

Creating the Primary Menu

Add Images to Your Menu Items

In WordPress, menu item targeting pages and these specific pages are two separated database objects. Furthermore, WP doesn’t support featured images for menu items by default. So, page featured images will not be displayed in your menus automatically.

However, there’s a workaround for this issue. You can download the following plugin:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/menu-image/

It’s supported by our themes and you can safely activate it to start adding images to your menus.

Add a New Grimlock Navigation Widget

Finally, navigate to “Appearance > Customize > Widgets” and add a new Grimlock Navigation widget to the area in which you wish to display your menu items and images. From there, you can select the menu and edit your widget -style and layout- to showcase your content in a way that fits your needs.
