Did I start completely wrong? Need help with Menu!

  1. Alright, so I just made a blog. I believe the link is already listed. It's the Chunk theme.

    I opened a wordpress.COM account and created my blog from there. I then upgraded to Pro so I could get custom designing and register my own domain, at the .com address listed.

    Somewhere on a forum I now read that for full control of your blog, I would have to have used wordpress.ORG, and then downloaded something (I don't know exactly what) and then start from there. I'm NOT an IT guy, so that way would be a little too confusing for me. So I'm ok with using wordpress.COM instead. I'm just worried that I really screwed myself out of any major customization because of choosing this route.

    Anyways, I'm trying to do a very simple thing. My Menu bar at the top runs in reverse order, right to left. It is also aligned right. I like the right alignment, but I want the links to come up in proper order, not in reverse (ie. I want it to read "HOME PICTURES" etc etc), not in reverse.

    I've been told to access my CSS...however I don't see ANY way to do this. And I'm starting to get a headache just from looking for it. Please give me some help here and let me know what I can do to fix this problem.

    The blog I need help with is shovelthecoal.com.

  2. Nevermind guys...I finally ended up figuring it out.

    There are two approaches you can use. This first one is when you only have Pages.
    1. Page Order - Page attributes module order numerically rather than alphabetically.

    2. This second approach is for those who have created a custom menu and have added pages and/or other items such as custom links and dynamic categories pages to that custom menu.
    create a custom menu http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
    add the pages and sub-pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#adding-pages
    order them http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#changing-the-order-of-menu-items-and-creating-sub-menus

    If you have a custom menu then you must establish consistency. Check the Pages sub-pages themselves to see if you have established a Parent page and child page “hierarchical structure” in the page attributes module. Remove if required.

    Also remove any “order” numbers you have assigned that may conflict with the order you are creating by dropping and dragging. Or simply change them so they are the same order as you establish in the menu. Establish consistency – problem solved
