Navigation bar in Tarski theme

    I'm setting up a blog using the Tarski theme (which I really like) but have hit a major obstacle:

    I want to add more pages to the horizontal navigation bar. Currently the bar contains the default "Home" and "About" buttons.
    Try as I might, I cannot find a way to add more buttons (links?, not sure of the terminology) to the bar.

    Forgive me if this is a dumb question but I am at the end of my tether trying to resolve this.

    Thanks

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

  2. They are called pages :)

    I've tried adding a new page but it adds it as a post?

    Dashboard->Pages->Add New

    Page Attributes = (No Parent)

    Template = Default Template

    Order= 0

    Staff have provided help for those who want to structure their blog like a website. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/

    What’s critical is:
    (1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
    (2) a clear comprehension of the fact that there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. But we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the Categories pages and Archives pages. Note: There must be one published post in each Category in order for there to be anything to display.

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and/or custom links in your custom menu as well. You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose the order in which to display any and/or all the foregoing in your custom menu. You choose which to display and which to hide. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus

    Creating a custom menu is a superior choice to creating only Pages.
