Custom Menu

Custom Menu

Flounder includes one menu area next to the content, which can be set up by going to Customize → Menus. The menu works a bit differently than other themes: menu items with a submenu have an arrow below them, followed by the submenu items, instead of a drop-down or slide-out submenu.

Custom Header
