5. Fill in the title area. This text is what will display in the menu for this item.

6. Leave the Alias field blank (Non-profit soapbox will automatically create a web-friendly URL for you).

7. Select a parent item. The parent item dictates where in the menu this new menu item will appear. If you want the new menu item to appear as an item underneath an existing item, select that one as its "parent item." If you want it to be on the top level, simply select "top" as the parent item.

# Columns: 1

# Links: 0

But feel free to customize as needed.

10. Hit save, and your new menu item will be created, displaying a dynamic feed of the articles within a category of your choice.
