    basically you'll see at xkinkyvampirex.net that I have a menu at top and well it's in alphabetic order but that's not how I have set it in the menu in wordpress. So the theme is overriding it. I did get a plugin to fix this however now I have added another page I DON'T want shown on the menu but it adds it anyway. I need help finding the code or some sort for stopping the theme overiding the menu in wordpress.

    Under the appearance section in your dashboard go to menus. Create a new menu and add the links you want in it in the right order. Save the menu. Now near the top right of the page you should have a box which says something along the lines of 'Your theme supports one menu'. Select the menu you have just created and click save. Now look at your site. This will hopefully sort your problem.

    It doesn't support it though that's what I am trying to say the theme doesn't support wordpress menus and overrides it.

    Hi kinkyvampire

    Interesting username. :) It's not that the theme is overriding the custom menu feature it just doesn't support it and is using the old method. But I know what you mean. Your theme is probably utilizing the wp_list_pages() function. It might even be making direct database queries. Believe it or not I've seen that silly method used before.

    Can you post the contents of your theme's header.php file at the pastebin then post the link here?

    Ah that makes sense lol.

    Just found it like you said it is using this <?php wp_list_pages('title_li='); ?> what should I do to change it?
