    Hey all!

    I've also written to the theme designer regarding this, so I'm looking for help on all fronts.

    I have a site with a separate blog. I would like th eblog to by my main site, but I will need a horizontal menu bar across the top (under my header). This will have the ABOUT, MEDIA etc pages.

    Can anyone help me code in this menu bar?

    Thanks for the pvious help in adding my picture to the sidebar. I'm going to add a contact link to the side bar as well (on my own this time). :)

    Thanks in advance!

    Blake

    Awesome.

    I followed the instructions, but now I just want to close them off so the blue background doesn't bleed through between each link. Ideally, it would be a box that goes across the center column that houses the buttons, and keeps the background out. Maybe add a border to each button.

    I'm going to keep digging. Maybe I'll find a sweet code to make them into tabs or something that will integrate nicer.

    Thanks for the fast response!

    just to spoil your own fun a bit:
    a background for your new horizontal nav:

    #navmenu {
    width: 770px;
    background: #FFFFFF;
    padding: 0px 10px 0px 10px;
    border-right: 3px solid #CCCCCC;
    border-left: 3px solid #CCCCCC;
    margin:0 auto;}

    basically stolen from the content ;-)
    enjoy the further customization

    Hell yes! Sweet!

    NOW, how do I turn the links I made into pages?

    i.e. I made the pages, but I need the links up top to link to said pages. Do I simply link them to the whole http address, or is there a shortcut like "./page2.htm" ?

    Thanks!!

    Codex is your friend - http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Creating_Pages
    P.S. Make sure that the URL you added in your horizontal navigation matches the URL generated by Creating WP Pages.
    P.P.S. If you have the wp_list_pages template tag within the navigation UL, then page links will automatically be generated in your now horizontal navigation bar
