Support » Fixing WordPress » How to add pages to top navigation bar

  • Hi,

    I’m sure you’ve had this question many times and I have tried to search for answers but unfortunately nothing is working. I have the standard free WP account and dont have access to CSS (I dont think), Please advise how I add more pages to my navigation bar.

    For example,

    About, Where to find us, contact us, About this site

    I want the above 4 links (pages) to be displayed on my top navigation bar. Currently I only have 2 Pages which are ‘Pages’ (which has sub headings) and ‘Categories’.

    I want the above 4 pages as main headings on the top navigation bar.

    Look forward to your response.

    Thank you.

    If that means wordpress.COM type blog you should visit Note you can purchase CSS access from wordpress.COM


    Thanks for the response.

    I have installed and activated the plugins mentioned above and now I dont know what to do next! How do I go about using it/start adding additional pages? Sorry to sound so dumb but I’ve never done any of this before.

    Oh and I have a .ORG account.

    Thank you.

    The template tag, wp_list_pages(), is typically used by theme designers to display Pages in a nav bar. With the help of the Template Hierarchy article, determine what Template is displaying your Pages (probably header.php), then look for wp_list_pages and see if an exclude=x or include=x is limiting the Pages displayed.

    I’m just trying to follow through what you have stated above but I really am clueless. Where do I look for wp_list_pages?

    I’m also trying another approach – I am following instructions from a website regarding the installation and activation of plugins but I get stuck when they ask me to “Swith to the AllWebMenus desktop application”. Where do I find/download this please?

    Thank you for your help.

    1. Look at the links in the answer I provided–like the Template Hierarchy link.

    2. Review Managing Plugins


    We just wanted to inform you that we just released a new version of the AllWebMenus “WordPress Menu” plugin!

    Version 1.0.17 of the AllWebMenus plugin offers the following:

    – Easier interface.

    – Multiple menus (use up to 5 different menus on your posts or pages), with separate settings per drop-down menu.

    – New option: “Dynamic” Menu Type (AllWebMenus provides the menu style while all items are populated based on blog’s content).

    – New option: “Static” Menu Type (both menu style and content are provided by AllWebMenus, allowing full customization of the menu).

    – New option: “Mixed” Menu Type (combines both the “Dynamic” and “Static” Menu Types in a single implementation – you can have both WordPress and non-WordPress items on your menu!).

    – Integration with the latest “Related Posts” (YARPP) plugin. It dynamically adds a “Related Posts” item at the end of the Main Menu, with a submenu that contains posts related to the post you are currently viewing!

    The new AllWebMenus “WordPress Menu” plugin can be downloaded from here:
