    Through the custom menu feature in WP

    Go to appearance -> menus and create a new menu using the drag and drop to set it up as you wish

    Go to appearance -> widgets and add the custom menu widget to your sidebar

    In the custom menu widget, set it to display the custom menu you set up

    Yes Sir, thanks very much. But when I :

    (1). Go to appearance -> menus, then create a new menu.
    I name it TOP MENU, then I tick Profile, Premium Product, Other Product. Why The Sub Menu is lost? I already create sub menu for PREMIUM Product : Amazing Immunocal, Immunocal....

    (2). Why Home Menu at the top is also disappear?

    (3). When I create Custom Menu Widget at Side Bar, I am still confused because it appears TOP MENU in the option. Whereas, I want to make the categories bacome Other MENU. Should I delete the category?

    I am so sorry for these basic questions and thanks again for help....

  4. If you make a user defined menu, you generally use it in PLACE of the automated one. So you have to add anything you want to the new menu.

    Yes, I got now, although I still keep trying to understand all.
    Another problem I want to know, how can I delete the writing Basic Theme ( in the right corner0? By the way I use Basic Theme from Elegant Theme.

    Thanks very much for sincere help.

    THat is an image.... do you have any sort of theme option under a menu like appearance -> theme options to change that?

    If not, it will need to be replaced in the code..... probably in sidebar.php, just after

    <div id="sidebar">
    
        <div id="header">

    There is no options for automatic editting Sir.
    Here is the code in the side bar:

    <div id="header"><a>" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?>"> <?php $logo = (get_option('basic_logo') <> '') ? get_option('basic_logo') : get_bloginfo('template_directory').'/images/logo-'.get_option('basic_color_scheme').'.gif';?>
    	<img src="<?php echo $logo; ?>" alt="Logo" class="logo"/></a> </div>

    Which codes should I delete it? So sorry I am afraid I make a fatal error>
    Could you help me for that?

    [Please post code snippets between backticks or use the code button.]

    Thanks very much

    THat code you posted shows me that there is an option, you have a menu available somewhere which allows you to change the logo

    get_option('basic_logo')
    -- that shows a logo option

    get_option('basic_color_scheme').
    -- that shows colour scheme options

    YOu must have a menu available on the backend for settng this stuff

    http://www.elegantthemes.com/gallery/basic/

    THere IS an options page

    look at the description, under full features list, middle column, bottom item

    Theme Option Pages

    You need to use the options page to change the logo. Not delete code. Deleting code will most likely break your theme

    That is not a free theme, so I am unable to download it. Thus, I cannot test out code changes to make any suggestions for you
