What is the deal? How do I correct it?August 17, 2010 at 12:39 pm #32667
Can I clarify, you’ve added a custom menu and added links to it – have you selected this menu from the drop down (on the top left of the Custom Menu Page content) as the Primary Navigation?
What’s the URL?August 17, 2010 at 1:22 pm #32668
I went to appearance, clicked on menus, added Menu Name, the pages were no longer grayed out, two boxes were ticked
then it was saved. Went to look at the homepage and the navigation/ menu is showing up but instead of having to click
on the page name to open it to read the page the text from each of those pages was running vertical down the screen in small
print. Pretty straightforward, don’t see how one can mess that up, you create a menu, tick the pages you want visible, save it and
that should be it.
If you need the URL then I will email it to you.August 17, 2010 at 2:28 pm #32669
also if you do not mind can you tell me how to set what shows up in the footer? I don’t want archive, pages etc.
I looked at the site http://championshavings.com/wordpress/?page_id=36 I like the way they have the footer
with the about us, products etc showing up.
Would like to have the menu on the site I am working on to look the menu they have.August 17, 2010 at 8:37 pm #32670
If you will accept help from me:
To fix your menus; go to the Menu tab in WP-admin, expand the menu item in question and edit the Description field. If you entered no description WP adds the text contents of your page. Remove it or add what you want.
The footer you want is a widget called “Categories”. Add the categories widget to Footer1, 2, 3, or 4 widget areas as you desire.August 17, 2010 at 8:42 pm #32671
@ cwrigley glad to accept your help. I might have been a little more frustrated that day, I apologize. I am a hack at this but figure that is the only way to learn as most people who know won’t teach it or don’t have the time. When you need something done and have to wait and wait it gets old. Anyway that must be it as I did not put a description. thanks and I like the work that you do. Talented.August 17, 2010 at 8:56 pm #32672
when you say menu are you referring to the dashboard? From there to pages which is where the about page is? There is a short description there and that is what is showing down the page.
