I’m struggling to edit the order of the pages in the main menu nav – despite changing them in the WP menu section, they are staying in alphabetical order. Is there a setting I am missing, or is this a bug?
The theme does not control the order menu items are displayed in.
The menu content (be it the automatically generated pages list or a custom menu) is directly generated by WordPress.
For complete control over the menu’s content and structure, I recommend using a custom menu.
