The Menus section of the Control Panel allows you to control the menu links on your site. You can completely customize the menus for your site. There are two menus pre-created for you - a "primary menu" and a "secondary menu" but you do have an option to add new menus.
The Primary Menu
The primary menu links are first/top level material and the majority of your site content will/should map to these categories. (Read more about Planning Your Content using our Content Inventory spreadsheet). The primary menu widget is automatically placed below the header region below the Site Info widget*.
The Secondary Menu
The secondary menu should include links to content that your site visitors would want to find quickly and easily, like "Directions" or "Contact". The secondary menu is placed in the top right corner of your site for maximum visibility*. However you can experiment with links in either menus and place them wherever you like.
*The Menus are widgets and you can experiment with the location of these menu widgets within your layout.
