E-PORTFOLIO TIP OF THE MONTH:
As you get involved and exposed to various types of experiences, you will have more things to write about and post on your e-portfolio! A common issue students make, is having too many top-level menu items. This tends to look cluttered and disorganized.

And you can do it in just a few simple steps.
Step 1: In your dashboard, go to “Appearance” → “Menus”
Step 2: Go to “Manage Locations,” and choose a menu (eg. “Menu 1”) from the drop down. Click “Save Changes.”
Step 3: Go back to “Edit Menus.” Before creating sub menus, select the menu items that you want to display by marking the check box under “Pages” and click “Add to Menu.”
You should see the menu items that you just added under “Menu Structure.” You can also drag the items up and down to organize the order of the menus.

When you’re done, hit “Save Menu”
Step 5: Go to your e-portfolio and check out that new look!
