How to display catergories in main menu? (5 posts)

    Hi there
    I run a parenting website http://www.mumsbabymagazine.com and have recently updated my theme using Artisteer... I somehow deleted my previous documentation and therefore cannot use this to try and find how I somehow managed this beforehand (as I have done this easily before but cannot remember the code or where I put it!).

    I would very much like to have the categories on the Main Pages Menu (with the other links) which will then drop down to display the categories and go accross to show the subcategories. I would then like to rename categories on the menu as 'Articles' so it technically looks like it is displaying a list of my articles (as it did before tonight when I stupidly uploaded a new template...).

    Anyone able to tell me the code and where I need to put it?

    If Artisteer supports custom menus you can have any type of menu you like, if not, simply replace current menu with categories.

    See

    and

    I dont want just the categories to be on the menu... I want basically my catergories to go alongside my pages menus as a drop down.

    I looked at the codex.wordpress wplistcatergories thingy and it looks almost like it might be what Im looking for but where on earth do I type the codes? Im lost!

    Hi,

    Please go to your i.e. wp-content/themes/mytheme/header.php and look for the code in that file. The menu in your case is in art-menu.

    One thing that I noticed is that you're using frames (http://www.mumsbabymagazine.com/mbm) is your "real" URL behind this correct? It's much better for Search Engines and for overall site performance to eliminate frames completely.

    Thanks,
    Emil
