How do I create a widget that allows me to post links from articles I've written
I want to post links to articles I’ve written for other publications. An In the News section.
Also, is there someone I can hire to help me customize my site? I host with you and really like wordpress but need some more help as my site grows.
Blog url: http://mitchellpr.wordpress.com/
The blog I need help with is mitchellpr.com.
There are a couple of ways to do that.
I recommend adding Custom Links to your Menu: http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
Then, these could either be in your navigation menu up top, or you could use them in a Custom Menu Widget instead: http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/custom-menu-widget/
As for help, we do have a directory of trusted folks for hire at http://directory.codepoet.com/ but I really recommend trying it yourself, it’s really the best way to learn.
I do not have a theme that supports a custom menu. I’m happy to change themes, but I’m a novice at this. Could you please recommend a theme that would easily transfer my existing site so I don’t have to do reformatting?
Thank you very much
As long as the theme supports widgets, you can use a Custom Menu Widget instead: http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/custom-menu-widget/
Ok, I put the widget in on the right side. Now how to I add the links to articles on other sites. For example…I want to add this link http://mobihealthnews.com/18224/survey-many-boomers-trust-doctors-to-recommend-health-apps/
I don’t know where to put that.
Also–how do I add tabs across the top (the navigation bar). I thought maybe it would be easier if I just added a navigation tab called “In the News” and put the links under it? What do you think? But I need detailed instructions.
The instructions here will walk you through the steps of adding a custom menu widget:
Before you can really use the widget, you’ll first need to create a custom menu:
Once you’ve created and saved a custom menu, you can return to the Widgets page, and assign that custom menu to your custom menu widget.
