Drupal CMS: Move menu items around on the menu

Learn to move menu items around on the menu in Drupal.

Before you start 

Only Web Content Managers and Site Owners can update the menu.

When editing use Chrome, Firefox or Safari but NOT Internet Explorer


You may want to move the order of menu items around or make a main page into a child page or vice versa.

  1. Ensure you are in editing mode
  2. Click on Structure | Menus | Main menu in the top toolbar
  3. Click on the four-headed arrow next to a menu item to drag the item up or down etc.
  4. Change as many items as you need to change
  5. Click the button 'Save configuration' at the bottom - failing to do this means you will lose your changes!
  6. Finally, check you are happy with the result, including on a mobile device
