Once you create the menus, you have to publish them in order to make them visible. Go to the module manager and publish the menu you desired.

Normally in Joomla menus, articles or anything will not be visible unless you have published them. Normally articles are published automatically in the article manager, but in case of menus it has to be published in module manager. Follow the following steps to publish the menu.

  •     Go to the module manager.
Joomla Administration Template Manager Styles
  • Go to the required menu item. (Refer joomla2.jpg) Red cross or oval will be displayed if the menu is not published. Green tick will be displayed if the item is published. If red oval or cross is there just click on it. It will change in to the tick.
Red cross or oval will be displayed
  • Check whether the menu is visible in the site.

That's all. Further more by clicking the menu item you can change more advance options of the menu, try them out.

Thanks Akash ED, it works. However, the menu is at the right side of the web site. I want to create my menu as a Horizontal menu. How can I create a Horizontal menu?

If standard themes are used, log into the options of the menu by clicking the menu in module manager and change the positioning option to Hornav. For other downloaded themes read the manual or any supporting files given by the creator of the template.

Go to the Advance options of the menu by clicking on it as I mentioned in the last post.

  • Select the positioning option. In earlier versions there were a drop down list in the positioning tab and if so select "Hornav" option to create the horizontal menu. In latest version click select position button as given below.
Advance option of the menu
  • The options list will pop up and select appropriate option in my case it is atomic-top menu. Sometimes it depends on the template you use. So, try the options till you get the desired results.
Atomic top menu

All the best.
