When you add a menu to a page with a page level tool, you can select which categories you would like to include on the menu. You can select one category, any combination of categories, or all categories. If you only have one category, all menus will appear on your page level menu.
- Select Manage Categories from the Actions menu on the top right of your screen.
- If you have more than one category, select the menu that you would like your new category to Position After.
- Type the Category Name.
- Select a Color for the menu: None or Custom Color. You can enter a hexadecimal color code, or click the box to the left of the code to select the color you want.
- Click Add Category.
- Click Save (or Cancel to discard your changes).
Your new category will appear in the Food Menu Categories list. Click the menu name to edit it, or click the trashcan in the Delete column to remove it. (This will delete the category from all of the menus that it is currently associated with.)
To reorder Food Menu Categories, click Reorder at the top right of the list. Drag and drop the menus in the order that you like, then click Done Reordering.
