  • Here is the site in question:

    I have tons of questions…. If anyone would like to help me over time, that would be awesome.
    But my first question that PROBABLY has a simple answer is how to either add to or remove what I call the second menu bar. If you look on the site, there is a top menu, which I am fine with. But then there is another menu with the titles “home” and “what’s new” on it. I can’t find the way to add to this or remove the whole thing. I understand that it is good to have redundancy regarding links on a website, so adding to this bar would be fine. I don’t know why there are only those 2 headings anyway….. yup, I am new to this. I am computer savvy and am able to understand the “lingo”, to a point, but am very very new to this are of computers. Thanks in advance!

  • If you want to add the menu in the menu bar ,kindly do the following steps
    1)Login to the admin panel
    2)Go to Appearance In the left sidebar
    3)In the appearance go to the menu And after that
    Create menu name by your choice on the right side top
    4)After that in the left sidebar Custom links
    create the url those who need to link with the label if you are not using
    5)Then click add menu
    6)Select the primary navigation in top of left sidebar as you are entered the menu name as i mention in the point 3
    7)By calling the navigation menu
    type the code in the header.php where the navigation is avail

    <?php /* Our navigation menu.  If one isn't filled out, wp_nav_menu falls back to wp_page_menu. The menu assiged to the primary position is the one used. If none is assigned, the                             menu with the lowest ID is used. */ ?>
                    <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'primary' ) ); ?>

    hope its helpful
    r if you are creating the page link by page or by category in the navigation menu


    Thanks Vicky. That is probably helpful, but maybe I know less than you think. But the directions you gave me sound like how to add to the main menu on top, which I know how to do. I am wondering about this menu under my site name, it is a black bar. I do not know how to edit that. It has a “home” link, and a “what’s new” link, and I didn’t put either of those there. I did create the “what’s new” page, and it appears on the top menu. But I am wanting to either edit or remove this black bar, the other menu.

    Rich – have you seen this?

    It may answer a lot of your questions.

    Thanks WPyogi. I have that link already, but thanks for the thought! I am pouring through that too, but I am hoping that someone can answer a few questions directly so I can move forward. I a have only been at this for a few days, and only for a few hours each day. So for a beginner, I am actually happy with what I HAVE achieved. But if I can get just a few more quirks worked out, I will feel ok about “going public” with the site and then fine-tune things as I go. Thanks though!

    Sure, no problem — just wanted to be sure you’d seen it! And certainly, post whatever questions you have. One thing I noticed is that the theme you are using is a bit outdated — did you see the note on the theme download page? It may not be a problem, but you should be aware of it in case you run into oddities.

    I did not notice the notice….lol. Thanks. Maybe it’s not too late to look into a different theme.

    I just looked at the theme page and did not see any note.
