If you use WordPress, your site’s navigation menu can be a great traffic source for your landing pages. Unlike regular WordPress pages, your landing pages won’t be available in menus by default.
But don’t worry, it’s straightforward to add them—we’ll show you how in the guide below.
Publish your landing page
Your landing page must be published before you can link to it in your WordPress site’s navigation menu. Use our WordPress plugin to publish landing pages directly to your site, or use any of our other supported publishing methods.
Create or edit a menu
In your WordPress Dashboard, navigate to Appearance › Menus in the sidebar. From there, you can define a new menu or edit an existing one.
For a full guide on how to define and edit menus, check out WordPress’ guide here: Menu User Guide.
Link to your page
Now, you can link to your landing page from your menu. Below, you’ll find the steps you need depending on how you published your landing page.
For landing pages published to WordPress
If you publish landing pages to your site with our plugin, they’ll appear in a Leadpages section on your menu’s edit screen. Select any pages you’d like in your menu, then select Add to Menu.
To rename a page’s label, click the drop-down arrow next to its title under “Menu Structure”. Then, input a new navigation label and click Save Menu.
For landing pages published elsewhere
Here’s how to add a landing page that’s not on your WordPress site to your navigation menu:
- Copy the URL of your published landing page.
- In your WordPress menu (under Appearance › Menus in your WordPress Dashboard), select the “Custom Links” option.
- Paste in the URL of your landing page, then enter whatever text you’d like to appear in your menu for that link. Select Add to Menu.
- Click Save Menu.
