3. Add new menu item

To structure and organize your website menu, you may find it helpful to have one or more menu items without associated pages.

One use is to group several pages into a category. The menu item (the category) doesn't need a page to explain it; it is a placeholder in the menu. You save space on the top menu level, and it looks neater and is easier for the website visitor to understand.

For example, you may have several website pages with video items. Create a menu item titled Videos, with no associated page. Then group (indent) the video pages under this menu item. (See the following images.)
