By default, Moodle doesn’t have the horizontal navigation menu (Custom Menu) enabled, so you need to follow the steps below to configure and enable it for your Moodle site.
Log into your Moodle site as an admin user, and navigate to the Theme settings option: Settings > Site administration > Appearance > Themes > Theme settings
On the Theme settings page, you should find a form field called “Custom menu items” where you can enter your menu items following the instructions located right underneath the form field. Here we’re just going to paste in the example provided by the instructions for demonstration purposes.
Click the “Save changes” button, and now you should see a horizontal navigation bar with your chosen navigation items. You can view our Moodle theme demo site here to see the menu in action.
Although the instructions provided by Moodle are informative and easy to understand, the real difficulty lies in finding the page location. Below is a list of the common Moodle page locations and you can just copy and paste the ones you want to add to the form.
Note: the example below assumes that your Moodle installation is in your server’s root folder
My Home | /my/ Courses | /course/index.php My private files | /user/files.php Calendar | /calendar/view.php Course search | /course/search.php View profile | /user/profile.php Edit profile | /user/editadvanced.php Change password | /login/change_password.php Messaging | /message/ Blog | /blog/ Tags | /tag/ Notes | /notes/ Login | /login/ Forgotten password | /login/forgot_password.php
