    Hi,

    I'm sure you've had this question many times and I have tried to search for answers but unfortunately nothing is working. I have the standard free WP account and dont have access to CSS (I dont think), Please advise how I add more pages to my navigation bar.

    For example,

    About, Where to find us, contact us, About this site

    I want the above 4 links (pages) to be displayed on my top navigation bar. Currently I only have 2 Pages which are 'Pages' (which has sub headings) and 'Categories'.

    I want the above 4 pages as main headings on the top navigation bar.

    Look forward to your response.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the response.

    I have installed and activated the plugins mentioned above and now I dont know what to do next! How do I go about using it/start adding additional pages? Sorry to sound so dumb but I've never done any of this before.

    Oh and I have a .ORG account.

    Thank you.

    The template tag, wp_list_pages(), is typically used by theme designers to display Pages in a nav bar. With the help of the Template Hierarchy article, determine what Template is displaying your Pages (probably header.php), then look for wp_list_pages and see if an exclude=x or include=x is limiting the Pages displayed.

    I'm just trying to follow through what you have stated above but I really am clueless. Where do I look for wp_list_pages?

    I'm also trying another approach - I am following instructions from a website regarding the installation and activation of plugins but I get stuck when they ask me to "Swith to the AllWebMenus desktop application". Where do I find/download this please?

    Thank you for your help.

    1. Look at the links in the answer I provided--like the Template Hierarchy link.

    2. Review Managing Plugins

    Hello,

    We just wanted to inform you that we just released a new version of the AllWebMenus "WordPress Menu" plugin!

    Version 1.0.17 of the AllWebMenus plugin offers the following:

    - Easier interface.

    - Multiple menus (use up to 5 different menus on your posts or pages), with separate settings per drop-down menu.

    - New option: "Dynamic" Menu Type (AllWebMenus provides the menu style while all items are populated based on blog's content).

    - New option: "Static" Menu Type (both menu style and content are provided by AllWebMenus, allowing full customization of the menu).

    - New option: "Mixed" Menu Type (combines both the "Dynamic" and "Static" Menu Types in a single implementation - you can have both WordPress and non-WordPress items on your menu!).

    - Integration with the latest "Related Posts" (YARPP) plugin. It dynamically adds a "Related Posts" item at the end of the Main Menu, with a submenu that contains posts related to the post you are currently viewing!

    The new AllWebMenus "WordPress Menu" plugin can be downloaded from here:

    Thanks,
    Likno Software
