Common header menu links

  • I have just converted a single blog site to a multi site. The theme is shared, and the menus written in the theme header file works, except that all links on the new blog now contain a pointer to the new blog. Is there a way to have a common header menu with links that are the same for all blogs?

    I am very new to WordPress (a month) and know know nothing about php programing.

    any and all help appreciated.

    Yes, and we’ve posted about this before, right here in this very forum. 🙂

    hardcode it is one option.

    using the switch_to_blog function is another, but it pull the actually links from whatever blog you set (usually the main)..

    Remember, each site is a silo of its own content – you’re running your own version of wordpress.COM.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have no idea what the switch_to_blog is.

    I tried a search. Lots of them, in fact. Can you point me to some workable keywords to search, or some topic titles/ids?

    Again, thanks.

    Hard coding the links seems to work. Is it possible to set a variable to an http:// path in the header and use that instead of hard coding the path in every link I need to go to the main site?

    <?php echo network_home_url(); ?>

    Dammit. Now I’m positive the search here is broken.

    <?php echo network_home_url(); ?>

    Seems to work after some very cursory testing.

    Thank you very much.
