Creating a list of navigation links to other areas of my Web site (6 posts)

    I am a new, fairly non-technical, user. I've got WordPress installed and running (www.brianutter.net/blog).

    I'd like to create a set of links in the right sidebar (I've started to play around with that file) that will link people to other areas of my Web site (outside of my blog).

    For example, a "Home" link to goto: brianutter.net, or a "Photos" link to goto brianutter.net/photos, etc.

    I've spent some time in the documentation, but can't figure out how this is done. Clearly I'm missing something easy and obvious, and I'm hoping someone in the community can point me in the right direction (or give me some sample code which I can modify).

    Thank you.

    In the Admin section go to links, link category, add link category. Provide a name for the new link category and save.

    Then use add link to add links e.g. 'http://brianutter.net' (for the url), 'Home' (for link description), select the link category where you want the link to show up and save.

    Thank you. I've followed your instructions, and created a new category (brianutter.net...) and new links (Home, Photos, Family) in that category--each with an assigned URL.

    I save, but the new category and links don't publish. Do I need to modify the template in some way to surface the new catagory and links?

    You may also want to do a quick search for the Stickymenus plugin, it's brilliant.

    I see everything shows up like it is supposed to now. What did you have to do extra to accomplish this?
