Resolved Link to special pages in navigation


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi, I'm a beginner user and have checked through the documentation but can't see how to add a link in the top navigation of my site to a special page - the blog.

See http://emilyredward.com/

I can't find the url or reference to the special page to link to when creating the menu. Help would be very much appreciated!

Hi,

First thing I recommend is for you to change your permalinks structure so that your URL's look cleaner. To do this, read the documentation here - http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Permalinks#Choosing_your_permalink_structure

I recommend the Postname option.

Once you have changed your permalink structure.

Go to Wordpress admin dashboard > Appearance > Menus and create your custom Menu, from here you can add whatever page you like, including your main blog page. For more information on how to do this, go here - http://codex.wordpress.org/Appearance_Menus_Screen

Now that you have created your custom Menu, go to PageLines > Site Options > NavBar and in the setting called "NavBar and Fixed NavBar Menu", then in the drop down menu for "Standard NavBar - Select Menu", select your newly created custom menu.

Save settings, and if you refresh your website now, it should display your custom Menu. You can add more pages to your menu, by visiting the Appearance > Menu.

Thanks a huge help! I realised my issue was not setting the "posts" page in Reading Settings.
