[resolved] terminology for top menu (7 posts)

    I have just imported an existing site to
    The menu in the sidebar is complete but the horizontal menu at the top
    only contains "Home" and "About"
    How do I add the other pages to the top menu.
    FWIW the site at tucsonfluteclub.wordpress.com which I didn't build is correct.

    My first problem is knowing what the top menu is called by WP or Digg.

    TIA for any help,

    Paul Scott

    I don't yet see a way to backup a WordPress.com site other that to export it which is how I move the site.

    Oddly enough, I remember that theme, and those tabs are a hard coded unordered list in header.php

    You would need to edit that file to add tabs.

    Thanks, miklb,

    Can I edit that file through the WP interface or do I need to go more directly through some control panel at GoDaddy. My site is at a temporary URL until I change the DNS and make the site live.

    You can edit that file via the editor under Appearance, assuming the permissions are properly set. I've never actually used that editor. I copy the file via SFTP to my local machine, make the edits, and then upload back to the server.

    Only AFTER I've made a backup of the file before making any edits. Regardless of the method of editing.

    Thanks!! That wasn't obvious!

    I would have used the same editing method as you but with this temporary previewdns.com location I haven't been able to find the files like header.php.

    I should be able to fix all kinds of things now. Should the regular WP interface leave my changes alone?
