I am the editor of a very poor college journal, and I’ve been forced to take over webmaster duties because of our lack of funds. I’m an English major with a simple understanding of HTML and CSS, so I’ve found it difficult to track down and change things with the lightword theme.
All I want to do is be able to add more buttons to the header at the top (like the “home” and “about” buttons). And erase the “subscribe via” rss text (I edited the headertop.jpg to take the orange image out). I’ve looked through the various.php files, and I think I’ve located the important lines in the header.php file (of the lightword folder):
<div id="top_bar"> <ul id="front_menu"<?php echo lw_expmenu(); ?>> <?php echo lw_homebtn(__('Home','lightword')); ?> <?php echo lw_wp_list_pages(); ?> </ul> <?php echo lw_searchbox(); ?> </div>
My question is, how do I add more buttons, and how do I link those buttons to posts I’ve created or outside pages?
If i could edit the HTML of the first page, I could just add another item to the list, but I don’t know how to do it with PHP files without screwing things up. Also, if you have any links to sites dealing php that would be fantastic.
Your help is much appreciated.
