I struggled to find out how to properly display my menus on my website. It was not so confusing but I guess a tiny bit of panic added to the confusion. After some guidance, I solved my issue relatively quick.
To create the menu, you must go to the appearance tab in the back end of your site and click menus. After that, you give your menu a name then click create menu. Then, you go to pages,click add new, give your page a title, and then add the necessary text to complete your page then publish your page. After that, you go back to the menus tab and locate your newly created page. Then, you check the box next to it and click add to menu. Check your menu settings to see that the box next to top menu is checked. Once all of this is done, click save menu and your menu will be completed.
