how to get the menu items to display in desired order / hierarchy?

Need help, again... :-(

This is the main menu hierarchy required on my site when having all unfolded, very simple:

Menu item 1
Menu item 2⇓
........Subitem 1
........Subitem 2
........Subitem 3
........Subitem 4
........Subitem 5
Menu item 3
Menu item 4
Menu item 5
Menu item 6
Menu item 7

At the moment all of the Menu items and subitems above have the “option” chosen as “Type” under “Edit menu option”. When I choose “section level 0” for “Menu item 2” this is what happens:

Menu item 1
Menu item 2⇓
........Sub Item 1
........Sub Item 2
........Sub Item 3
........Sub Item 4
........Sub Item 5
........Menu item 3
........Menu item 4
........Menu item 5
........Menu item 6
........Menu item 7

Now everything groups under Menu item 2. I did watch related video but it did not clarify this behaviour. Tried other settings but always landing up with problems.

May I please ask for another drop of water from the ocean of your knowledge? :-)
What would be the exact settings to use in order to bring out correct outcome?

Thank you for any help, as always!

You didn't mention what Tiki version you're using, whether or not you creating Bootstrap-compatible menus, if you're using the CSS menu or folders, etc., but in general, try this:

Menu item 1 (level 0)
Menu item 2⇓ (level 0)
........Subitem 1 (level 1)
........Subitem 2 (level 1)
........Subitem 3 (level 1)
........Subitem 4 (level 1)
........Subitem 5 (level 1)
Menu item 3 (level 0)
Menu item 4 (level 0)
Menu item 5 (level 0)
Menu item 6 (level 0)
Menu item 7 (level 0)

Tiki version 15.2. I wouldn't know answers to your other questions. I simply followed the tutorial video / info, following this path of action:

QuickAdministration/Menus/+CreateMenu/Menu options/Create menu option

I also created a home page for each menu item and subitem - just needed correct things to choose from the "Type" drop down and when trying to get the settings right I couldn't make things visible the way I wanted. Your solution worked perfectly, though!

I'm working through building my site step by step and to be honest I find your help priceless. With every step taken, every problem is faced and resolved!

Thank you for your continuous support! :-)
