Simple menus are ideally suited for cases where you'd like to add navigation across a few pages of your site. You can edit a simple menu module in the template or in the content editor. 

When managing the main navigation across many pages your website, it's a best practice to use an advanced menu module.

Please note: any changes made to the simple menu module in the content editor will override edits on the template level. If you don't want the simple menu to be editable in the content editor, you'll need to lock the module in the template.
