    I want to add a horizontal menu navigational bar (similiar to the one at the top of each page) to the bottom of each page.

  • Hello have a look at this link,

    http://wpmu.org/how-to-add-navigation-menus-to-your-wordpress-theme/

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards

    Maybe this thread will help

    you have to add this code in footer.php template of your theme.

    <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'menu' => 'menu-footer', 'theme_location' => 'secondary' ) ); ?>

    And you will have to do some styling for horizontal menu bar in style.css template.
    Follow this link for the navigation.

    Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues. First create a child theme for your changes.

    Thanks esmi. I just realized that everyone is talking about child themes and I’n now attempting to do that. I followed the instructions but can’t seem to activate the child theme now that it’s loaded. I went to dashboard>Appearances>themes but don’t see the child theme – dah – what now.

    Have a look at this easy tutorial…

    It will help you.

    Kind regards

    I got the child theme installed. I think maybe it was there from the first try but what I missed was:
    When I went to the Manage theme page it was already at the top of the page and I missed that the title was changed from the Twenty Eleven theme to the Twenty Eleven Child them. I didn’t have to activated it – it was already there.
    Thanks to everyone for your help.

    Now to get back to the horizontal footer menu bar. If I start going into the footer.php template does this also have to be a child function?

    Yes you will add some function to the child theme. Have a look at this link…

    Kind regards

    Oh boy, after so many tries, I got so excited that my child theme showed up in the Manage Theme page that I didn’t check to see how it displayed. It appears the site now has no Twenty Eleven formatting despite that I included the suggested@import url(../twentyeleven/syle.css); . The content is there but no styles.

    Help, I feel like such a doob

    I’ve tried everything. I have all the appropriate files in the file manager
    wp-content
    themes
    twentyeleven
    twentyeleven-child

    Here is my style.css
    `/*
    Theme Name: Twenty Eleven Child
    Version: 1.0
    Theme URI: http://www2.mgpi.biz
    Description: Child theme for Twenty Eleven
    Author: Joanne MacMurray
    Author URI: http://www.mgpi.biz
    Template: twentyeleven
    */
    @impot url(..twentyeleven/stlye.css);’

    Where is my mistake!!! I’m using Dreamweaver for editing my style.css and Fetch to upload to my theme child.

    I did a test just for this purpose.

    I have installed Twenty Eleven theme on my test site. I then downloaded the child theme as @esmi suggested above. I went into my admin panel uploaded my child theme and activated it without any problems and it works. I did not even touch the code. If you do the same then it should work unless you have made other changes.

    Kind regards

    I did exactly that no changes were made. I downloaded the file exactly as she gave it to me still no results. When I go to the Manage Themes page it’s not there.
    Thanks for trying to help but obviously I need more help.

    Okay, so you uploaded the zip folder child theme. Then you say when you go to check the theme, it is not there. What version of WordPress are you running?
