Text-based menus are okay. But if you want to add some jazz to your navigation bar, images are the way to go. Here’s a very easy way to add images to your WordPress navigation bar without having to edit CSS.
Step 1) Install and activate the plug-in called “Nav Menu Images”.
Step 2) Create a custom menu. It’s a pretty straightforward process. Here’s a useful tutorial if you’re not sure how to go about creating a custom menu. Your custom menu options should now have a link that allows you to upload an image for your menu items.
Step 3) Upload the image. In the pop-up window where you can upload the image, make sure you click the link that says “Use as featured image”. Then save your custom menu.
Step 4) Celebrate your awesomeness.
Now I know it’s not the best-looking menu buttons. But I hope you learned how easy it is to add custom images to your navigation menu in WordPress without even touching a single line of code.
