How to create sub menus

    Hi all,
    I am trying to design my first website. I am very new at this, so despite reading quite a lot about it I am still unable to do some of the seemingly simple things I have in mind. For example, I want a completely different menu (separate from Home, About and Contact) can be either scrolling down or photos to click on to access the different sections of my website. From there I would like to be able to write blog posts in each of these sections (it would be nice if I could somehow link some posts to different sections). I might have a completely wrong wording, if so I apologize and please correct me!
    I would appreciate any help on how to do this. Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is longingforfarawaylands.wordpress.com.

    Hi,

    The menu options for each theme are limited to those mentioned and described in the corresponding theme guide. The Twenty Sixteen theme guide mentions two menus: “a traditional menu in the top-right,” and a social links menu.

    Twenty Sixteen doesn’t display a default pages menu (as some themes do), so the menu presently displayed in the header area on the site https://longingforfarawaylands.wordpress.com/ is a custom menu assigned as the “primary menu.” You may replace this menu with another custom menu.

    From there I would like to be able to write blog posts in each of these sections

    This is most easily done by creating new posts and assigning them to a specific category or categories. See the Category Pages support page. If you intend to create sub-menus under top-level categories in your menu, then see the Organize your menu section of the Custom Menus support page for instructions and animated illustrations.

    (it would be nice if I could somehow link some posts to different sections)

    Any post may be included in various category pages. Just assign the desired categories to each post.

    …photos to click on to access the different sections of my website.

    As far as I know, this isn’t possible on a WordPress.com menu, but there are various widgets that may accomplish what you describe. For example, the Top Posts & Pages Widget may include thumbnail image links, and you may insert Display Posts Shortcode, which may be customized to include image links, into a text widget.

    I forgot to provide a link to the “Organize your menu section of the Custom Menus support page.”
