I am developing a site based on Joomla from scratch
I saw in the examples that the top menu is composed of several items
The first looks like a blue button
I created a mainmenu with two items, but these appears one below the other, not on the right, and not as buttons
How can I achieve this ?
1) create a menu under the menu manager, when you create each menu item you can choose its type (menu type) each item can be either a single article or a category of articles or open an extension such as a photo gallery depending on what extensions you have installed once you have a menu of a set of menu types save it.
2) create a menu module - under extensions open module manager, if you also ready have a main menu open that one or create a new module and choose type menu.
now when the menu module is open choose the menu you have just created and also choose the position the menu is going to be displayed at. (see your template that you have chosen for the positions) for the main menu its usually position-1.
also set it to display on all pages. (under menu assignment tab)
why is it displaying downwards? it maybe it is the position you have chosen for the menu?
check your template for the positions.
