More on menu order

As you create pages in your site Administration, key pages need to be placed in your site menu (left menu and/or horizontal menu). These menus are your main menu. The position of the pages in the menu will be determined by the number you've allocated to its Page Position:. For example, position 0 is likely to be your Home Page, and so on down 1, 2, 3, etc.

The Menu Order (under page Tools) facility allows you to quickly and easily change the menu order and see the ON / OFF status of pages available for the menu.

You may, if it is enabled on your site, switch to editing the Secondary Menu pages by clicking on the button to the right.
