    Hi

    I would seriously just like explanation regarding why wordpress is using all of these structures when creating a menu.

    <div class="nav_links">
    <div class="menu-main-container">
    <ul id="menu-main" class="menu">
    <li id="menu-item-147" class="menu-item menu-item-type-post_type menu-item-object-page current-menu-item page_item page-item-145 current_page_item menu-item-147"><a href="http://localhost/wordpress/">home page</a></li>
    
    <li id="menu-item-152" class="menu-item menu-item-type-post_type menu-item-object-page menu-item-152"><a href="http://localhost/wordpress/portfolio-page/">Portfolio Page</a></li>

    I also have tried to link my different pages manually in the code:

    <ul class="nav_links">
        		<li> <a href="#">Home</a></li>
                <li class="withdiv"> <a href="<?php echo bloginfo('home');?></a>Home</li>
                <li class="withdiv"> <a href="#"> Portfolio </a></li>
                <li class="withdiv"> <a href="#">page4</a></li>
                <li class="withdiv"> <a href="#">page5</a></li>
        </ul>

    But this definitely is not responding the right way, each time I click on the link the address bar starts to fill up with the path (like a infinite loop)

    Mainly looking for a idiot proof explanation. I am not using wordpress for anything else except populating information/products/artwork that will probably change a few times a year. There for would like nice menu features (not WP features) with the comfort of creating custom content.
    Any way thanks

    Not sure what Theme you're using, however if the Theme supports, WordPress does feature custom menus.

    Hi Emil

    I am not using any theme. And yes have done some mad reading about the custom posts. I have them in my dashboard and they are also working (mostly).

    That is why my main concern is the styling of navigation, actually I don't want to use wordpress for the navigation to be honest. But for some reason I can't force linking the pages to each other (like explained above).

    Thanks
