Shuffle Menu in twenty thirteen

    I am having difficulty shuffling the menu in twenty thirteen. I have tried putting numbers into the attributes, it does not change anything. I have successfully shuffled them in Appearance>Menus, however, when I update, it makes no difference. Can anyone advise?

    The blog I need help with is



    Hi there,

    re: changing the order of Pages, not Posts

    There are two approaches.
    1. If you have only pages in your horizontal menu and that’ is all you want in it see here to use numerical order.

    2. Creating a Custom Menu
    Adding Pages
    Changing the Order & Creating Sub-Menus

    Custom menu Troubleshooting – My pages are in the wrong order
    Check the sub-pages themselves to see if you have established a Parent page and child page “hierarchical structure” in the page attributes module. Remove if required.

    Also remove any “order” numbers you have assigned that may conflict with the order you are creating by dropping and dragging. Or simply change them so they are the same order as you establish in the menu. Establish consistency – problem solved.


    Thanks for your help, however,
    Dashboard>appearance>Edit Menus>Select Menu1

    Under pages>Select all and transfer to Menu Structure.
    drag to required order, delete numbers in attributes, checked none are sub-menus. Save Menu> “menu 1 has been updated”

    view site and refresh

    No Difference!

    Ps, there are ten menu items.

    Hi there,

    Is this on your site at or another site? (That looks like the only one using Twenty Thirteen, so I just want to make sure I’m looking in the right place.)

    I see you set up a custom menu for that site, but you didn’t assign it to a menu location yet. Until you assign the menu to the “Navigation Menu” location, that custom menu won’t appear on your site. (Instead, your theme will use the default menu setup.)

    You can change that under Appearance > Menus. There, you can choose the menu you want to edit, and under “Menu Settings” (below where you customized the menu items) you can check the box next to “Navigation Menu.” Then, click the “Save Menu” button and that menu will appear on your site.

    Please let me know if you have any questions about that. :)


    That worked well Rachelmcr, much appreciated.
