WordPress Menu (2 posts)

    I'm making my own wordpress blog and am wondering if I can create a custom menu navigation. What this entails is basically a list for the different pages in a menu nav, but instead of dynamic names for each in a <p> tag where, I'm using my own images in place of text for list items.

    For an idea of what I'm attaching a link. My question therefore, is like most blogs, where there is a menu navigation that can dynamically add menu items, is this a requisite for a wordpress theme to work or can I move forward and use php and link to different pages and posts with what I have?

    If you are creating a theme to upload to wordpress.org you have to provide wordpress menu support but if it is your own theme then that is not a problem. Anyway under Appearances >> Menus you can attach custom links, categories as well as posts and pages so not sure why you want to hardcode this. There are also plugins that allow you to upload images to menus like http://wordpress.org/plugins/menu-image/ or you can do it manually as a background image via css
