If you published with WordPress before and missed the latest changes, here is how to nest pages in WordPress:

To create a new page, click My Site, Pages:

Click Add New.

Go back to My Site.

Scroll down the left menu bar and click Appearance, Customize:

Click the Edit icon in the Primary Menu:

Scroll down and click Add Items:

Open the folder pages and click the desired page to be nested:

Grab the newly added page with the Select icon and move it to the desired place in your menu:

When you are done, click Save Changes:
