Overview

A web menu defines the primary navigation routes within your website.

A menu item may be defined as a parent/top menu item and may contain sub-menu items/child items.

When defining menu items, keep in mind you want to minimize how many times an end-user has to click to get to where they need to be. A general rule of thumb in web design is that it should take no more than 3 clicks to get to a menu destination.
