    Hello!

    I'm very new to wordpress, and so far i've run into some issues regarding the navigation menu.

    I have 5 categories in the nav menu
    1. Home
    2. About us
    3. Blog
    4. Gallery
    5. Contact

    They are showing up on the website, but when you click on some they either link you back to the "home" page or they link you to a page "not found" How do I set it up, where if you click on "About Us" {for example} and it takes you to a new page within the overall website?

    Your help is appreciated!

    Thank you :)

    Unfortunately that doesn't help me.

    I already have the theme "Colorway" set up on wordpress for the website.

    Please see if you have pages named gallery and contacts (go to dashboard > pages).

    Your pages are working fine looks like you do not have any content for the pages.

    Thanks Krishna!! I got it to work finally.

    Next question: For example if you click on "About Us" how do you remove the right hand side bar, that says 'recent posts' ; 'archives' etc?

    Thanks for your help thus far!

    Also, how do you change the "heading text" under each page? Right now it just says "About Us" but in a different text. I figured out how to change the overall text, but the headings seem to be coming up with that bubbly writing.

    Those are widgets you can take them out by going to appearance>>>>Widgets if do not want any widgets at all like Home page then you will need use same template in Page Attribute.

    As you are using a commercial theme, you need to contact the theme's vendor for support for the theme. Sorry, we do not support themes downloaded from commercial sources.

    Thanks govpatel!

    I do want to keep the widgets, but only on the "Blog" page. I want to remove them on all the other pages.

    Would you be able to help me with that?

    Thanks!

    Go to Pages and then click edit on Home page on right you should see a box Page Attribute check see what template you using for Home Page use the same template for all other pages.
