If you’ve been following along on how to use menus in our getting started article, then you already know how to do this, but we’ll walk you through the whole process that works for any of our designs.

In the WordPress sidebar, click ProPhoto > Customize, or simply view your website in your browser if you’re logged in, and click customize at the top in the WordPress menu bar.

Where the menu is located, hover over the block and click the lock icon.



A popup will show up allowing you to select two options.

A. Continue – Clicking continue, you’re editing the block for all the existing layouts the block has been added into.

B. Make Unique – Clicking unique will separate this block from the remaining layouts it’s connected to, and whatever changes you make to it, will only show up on the layout you’re currently viewing.



Click Continue. Since you’re wanting the header block to be the same across your entire site, you’ll want the changes you make in the block to carry over to all the layouts the block has been added to.

Once you’ve clicked continue, hover over the menu module to bring up the purple box. Then click the settings icon.



You’ll now see a new popup, and the sidebar change. The popup displays all the options for what you want your menu to look like in appearance. You can close that popup if you don’t want to make any changes.

You can click near the top of any popup in ProPhoto 7 for a drag icon to show up and you can move the popup out of the way while you work on something else.



In the sidebar, it displays all the menu items currently in the module. Click the settings icon for each menu to assign it to a page or link.

Clicking the settings icon brings up a new popup options where you can set the link for the page you want. In this example, we’re just going to edit the existing gallery links already in the design.

Start by clicking the settings icon to the right of the menu item you want to edit.


When the popup comes up, edit the name of the gallery link, and select the gallery you want to the link to go to.

You’ll need to do this for each menu link in the menu. You can also add new menu links by clicking the “+Add Menu Item” button at the top of the sidebar as well.
