[resolved] about link in oxygen (9 posts)

    I am new to WordPress. I just generated a web page wegwert.com using oxygen.

    In my first menu, whenever I click on the second and third items of the menu (ag equipment brands and application), I get the reply:

    http://www.wegwert.com/about does not exist.

    The other four items of the menu work fine. I am not aware of specifying any link to http://www.wegwert.com/about, but apparently WordPress thinks otherwise.

    I would appreciate your help with this.

    Thank you,
    Paul

  2. Try going to Appearances > Menus and either update the existing menu or make a new one with the pages that you want displayed in your navigation.

    Thank you for you suggestion. It appears I have remove the existing pages that point to "about" and hope that when I generate new pages they will not point to "about" again.

    I am certainly confused: I can see how to add pages to the menus, but I do not know how to add menus to pages.

    I somehow managed to have the first menu (the horizontal menu) added to my pages, but I am not sure how to add the secondary menu (the vertical menu). If I look at the information available in pages, I can only set the parent, template and featured image. I would think there is another "handle" that allows for setting which menus I want for a certain page, but I do not know what that "handle" is.

    I would appreciate it if you could also point me to a good manual for WP.

    Thank you,
    Paul

  4. Once yo've made your menu, you can assign it to a location.
    Primary Secondary or Subsidiary

    Thank you - it is working as I wanted!

    Now I have a new question: where can I read about modifying the page template?

    Thank you,
    Paul

  6. The first thing you will need to do is make a child theme - Codex: Child theme

    or use a CSS plugin such as this one http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css/ or jetpack.

    The answer to your question really depends on what kind of modification you want to do.
    If it's just a colour or margin change, then a CSS plugin would be useful, but if you want to modify the layout or the output of your page.php, then a child theme is easier.

    Thank you! I will explore these options.

    I really appreciate your help.

  8. No worries.
    If you have any other questions, it would be best to mark this thread as resolved and then just start a new one with your new question.

    Cheers
