    I'm playing around with four free themes. At first I was working with Expound theme and I was trying for an hour to create a page and have it appear on the menu bar. I could not do anything to get it to work. So I switched themes and viola! The pages I made showed up in the menu bar. In three of my four themes no pages on the menu bar. In Twenty Twelve theme all my pages show up perfectly as I intended. What gives?

    Did you create a custom menu?

    If so you need to set the menu to be used by doing the following.

    In WordPress version 3.8, select Appearance, Menu then click the manage locations tab. Then you will see one or more locations where a menu bar can be displayed in your theme. Choose the one that applies then select your custom menu.

    If you didn't create a custom menu. Create one by going to Appearance, Menu Then click create menu. Create the menu then follow the step above. For more information refer to http://codex.wordpress.org/Appearance_Menus_Screen

    Thanks Chris. I did what you said. Some pages showed up immediately and others not. So I trashed all my pages and started again. Now they are all working. Not sure exactly where I went wrong, but I had not designated location of the menu. Thanks for the tip.

    Hi, I've installed the new 3.8 version, but I don't see the "Manage Locations" tab in my Menu settings page.

    This is my screen capture:


    Could you please help me?

    thank you
