The images above show how these features work.

(1) The page "Home" is at the top of the "Overview" chart, so it is first on the website menu (farthest to the left on a horizontal menu).

(2) "Page 2' is unpublished, so it does not show on the website menu.

(3) "Page 3" is the next published page on the "Overview" chart, so it is next in order on the website menu.

(4) "Page 4" is indented to the right under "Page 3" on the "Overview" chart. It does not appear on the main level of the website menu. To see it, you must move your cursor over "Page 3", then "Page 4" will appear.
