    Hello,

    Is there a way to include a Tab on my current WP blog that leads to my other WP blog? Any related tips appreciated.

    Thank you,
    SM

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

    Yes. Add a Custom Link to a Custom Menu, which you can then set up to show as your blog menu. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#adding-custom-links

    Thanks, starshining4ever. I tried this and it worked on one blog whose theme supports only one custume menu. When I tried on the other one, they did not show as page tabs. ANy idea why? The theme on the other one is Confit. But I can change it if the problem was theme-related.
    Thanks again.

    One custom menu refers to the whole menu bar and not the number of items in it. You can have as many items as you want. There are many common errors, misunderstanding and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/

    Timethief, Thanks for continually supporting us.
    This link is so so useful. I tried now and it worked. One problem though. I see your point about the difference between ITEM and MENU. I didn’t know that. Yet, when I chose from the drop down menu, my Home and About disappeared. It’s like it supports either the menu bar of the About and Home “or” the menu bar of the customized ones I created. Any idea if I am getting it right or not and how to solve this?

    Hmmm, you might want to just try that. For an example my blog here, my theme supports two menus and the top one is made of direct links.

    You can add the “About” page and a link to your “Home” or main posts page into the custom menu.

    Thanks star. I will try other themes while working on this issue.

    Star, this is a good idea. I tried this but seems Confit theme only supports one really. It even did not support all the ones I created when I chose from the drop down menu.

    Oh got it right finally! After going through a couple of website you linked me to and your blog (timethiefe) all worked out :)

    I tried it on another blog than this one as trial but I will be doing the main one soon.

    Appreciate the support.

    Best,
    Suzan
