I have created a new menu called new-menu. I go to Admin > Structure > Menus > Settings

And I choose "New Menu" for the "Source for the Main links" option.

However, on my site, it still shows the Main Menu links (instead of New Menu links).

What am I missing?

Note: I am running a custom "Drupal core" from my university, and I've never worked with Vanilla Drupal, so I'm not sure if something is missing that should be there.

  • What theme are you running? How are you printing your menu in your page.tpl? Aug 30, 2017 at 1:08

You need to change the menu under Structure > Blocks. Find the Main Menu block that is active and click its "Configure" link. The third option is Menu... change this to dropdown to your new-menu.

  • I don't have a "Main Menu" block. I have a "Navigation" block, which does not list the "main-menu" listed in it. Aug 31, 2017 at 3:50
