Custom NavBar

    I’m looking to instate my own navbar to my blog. The reason being is that I want my own custom font and most importantly I need the “Home” button to link to my original website and not the blog homework.

    Currently, I can pretty easily remove the standard navbar with CSS. Getting my navbar to show up on the other hand, is trickier. Another member in the forums suggested that I put the new navbar code in a widget, and then use fancy CSS to move it (using “absolute positioning”) to the proper place.

    Here’s what I’m aiming for:

    Is this dream attainable on If so, how should I start?


    The blog I need help with is


    Why reinvent the wheel when you don’t have to?

    2010 supports custom menus here and you can add external links, have dropdowns and also add tags, categories, or just about anything you want to it.

    As far as changing fonts, you can do that, just remember that any font you select has to be available on the visitor’s computer or their browser will substitute whatever it can find on their computer that is close.

    For custom, off the wall or non-standard fonts, use typekit which is now compatible with wordpress.COM.



    Excellent thanks that did the trick.

    Is there a CSS property that I could manipulate to have the menu buttons be “justified” (ie space itself out to take up the entire width)?


    You’re welcome.

    On menu tab spacing/justification, I tried several things and couldn’t get it to justify across the full width. You can adjust the left/right padding under ” #access a ” but then things can break if someone uses the zoom feature on their browser.

    If it is possible, it is beyond my experience at this point.
