    Hello. I’ve just created a website using Weaver II 1.0.26 theme but have now got a problem with creating a custom menu that’s baffling me, so could use some help please.

    So far what I’ve done on my site is to create a static front page using this tutorial:

    So I ended up with a static front page (Home) and a blog type page (blog). Then I added categories as I read on here that’s how you create, for want of a better word, “pages” like the look of a traditional website. All OK so far. After more research I installed the “simply exclude” plugin. Still OK. Wanted 2 column content pages so installed “WP post columns” and all was still OK. Then I wanted my categories to show on the menu bar so followed this advice:

    and this tutorial:

    I made pages, eg clothing, pets, garden and added them to my custom menu then added categories (nested underneath the appropriate page) such as “outerwear”, “lingerie” and “swimwear” under the “clothes” page. Then went “theme location”>”Primary navigation”>”my custom menu…and it’s not right! Instead of the categories or pages listed on the navigation bar/menu bar it has the titles of all the posts I’ve made! Does anyone know what I’ve done wrong please? What I’m after is a drop down menu, with the main categories on the menu bar, and the sub categories dropping down. Thanks.
