Garland - Configuring whats in top menu?

  1. I chose the Garland theme for my website:
    http://dekhoblog.wordpress.com/

    I "designed" the website about 6mths ago, and added two links to the top (About & Ask A Question) = These simply link off to 2 pages.
    I am now looking to add another link (to another page I have already created), but can no longer find the option to add items to this menu within the Admin.
    I am not using the CSS upgrade

    Am I missing something? Or has something changed with WordPress to cause this to no longer work?

    The blog I need help with is dekhoblog.wordpress.com.

  2. Try Appearance -> Menus

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

  3. Yea I thought that. Is this something new that WP introduced? I didnt configure the previous menus via here and when I create a new menu, it gives me this message:

    "The current theme does not natively support menus, but you can use the “Custom Menu” widget to add any menus you create here to the theme’s sidebar."
    - Would be happy to revert to wp-menus, but not in the sidebar.

    Any ideas on how to configure the existing menu items that i have? Cant see this option anywhere?

  4. You will have to change themes if you want to use the custom menu feature > See here for the list of themes that do have this feature http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

  5. Fair enough.
    But the thing is, I previously had the option to configure the top menu for this theme a few months back, but now I dont have that option.

  6. You never had the option to configure the top menu in Garland: you just publish a page in Pages > Add New and the top menu displays a links to it; or you delete a page in Pages > Edit and the link to it vanishes from the top menu.

  7. Plus you can hide the link to a published page by turning it into a child page.

  8. Oh, i forgot to tell that your theme does not currently support the feature, and yes it is a new one. Thanks timethief for telling this.
