    I want to have a page who's main function is present a scrolling menu of titles that lead to pages.

    Specifically I want a list of the meetings where I can select a meeting and get a page that contains the minutes for that meeting. I want to be able to get to pages within my site as well as pages that are stored elsewhere.

    I am very new to WordPress. I don't know how to think about finding this answer myself. I tried searching and got nothing useful.

    I will need very simplistic step by step instructions.

    Thanks

  2. An easy way for you to do this, would be to create a menu, let's call it meetings. Add all of your pages with meetings, minutes etc.

    Then in your theme, create a custom template and display your menu in there.

    That's it.

    This is very similar to adding a sitemap to your site. If you do a search for "add sitemap to WordPress site" you'll find lots of tutorials.

    Thanks Christine.

    I know it's hard for you to relate, but I don't know how to create a menu in the first place.

    Once I have a page with a menu on it then I'll see what it takes to create a new template.

    I did figure out how to use the site map template. It wasn't a problem.

    I'm still waiting for the light to go on. I have created sites in the long past, but not with WordPress. I really do appreciate your help.

    I found some code that works reasonably well.

    <span style="color: #ffffff;"><strong><span style="font-family: Times; font-size: 22pt; font-style: italic;">Social Justice Committee Minutes</span></strong></span>
    
    <div style="font-family: rockwell; font-size: 14pt; width: 450px; height: 500px; overflow-y: scroll; scrollbar-arrow-color: <br /> blue; scrollbar-<br /> face-color: #e7e7e7; scrollbar-3dlight-color: #a0a0a0; scrollbar-darkshadow-color: <br /> #444444;">
    
    <h5 style="text-align: left;"><strong style="color: #ffffff;"><a href="http://sjc.uuca.sutherlandcompany.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/Church_November_11_Social_Justice_Minutes.doc/" target="_blank">November 11, 2012 Social Justice Committee Minutes</a></strong></h5>

    I repeat the h5 code for each line in the menu and end with a </div>

    It's a start. :)
