First, are there only two menus in Twenty Eleven? Does the "Home" button count as a menu, because I apparently overrode it when trying to create new menus. The sample on the wp.com menus support page shows Twenty Ten with many menus on the bar below the header picture
I tried to add a navigation menu on Twenty Eleven following the instructions at http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
Side note: my pages are private until I can learn WordPress, hopefully this doesn't matter.
When I tried to create a new menu, the two default menus that came with Twenty Eleven "Home" and "About" vanished completely but now "Home is back and is the only menu on the black menu bar under the header photo.
This is what I did: dashboard > appearance > menus
I named my menu (there are apparently only two menus in Twenty Eleven).
menu > pages:
Though I created three test pages, the "pages" sidebar in "menus" says "no items."
menu > Adding Category Pages to Your Menu
The categories I created are there, so I click on them and they appear as side bars beneath the main menu item, but never show up on the black bar on the blog beneath the Twenty Eleven photograph. It just says "Home."
"Adding Category Pages to Your Menu"
How do I link the pages to the categories to the menu: pages > categories > menu? Is this the hierarchy?
There is no category check box on the new pages, to place the a page in a particular category.
The blog I need help with is truegritgs.com.
