    Hi. Are you talking about hapyhome.wordpress.com ? Please specify because I don’t see any custom menu or custom menu widget.

    For WordPress.COM, the instructions to create a custom menu are here:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#creating-a-custom-menu

    And once you have done that, you go to Theme Locations and set your menu as the Primary Menu:

    You have enabled the Custom menu because the standard menu navbar at the top of your site has disappeared.

    When you create a Custom menu, give it a name, like “my custom menu”, “main”, “top” or “navwidget”. Then, start adding menu items to your Custom Menu, like Pages you have already created or Post Categories or special Posts you’d like to highlight, or even external links.

    You should see these modules (Pages, Categories, Posts, External Links) in your Custom Menu editing screen. If these modules don’t appear, click on the “Screen Options” link in the upper right hand corner of your screen and click to make the modules appear.

    Once you’ve added your menu items to the Custom Menu, you will need to save the menu for the items to appear in the navbar or widget. It’s the items you’ve added to the menu that will be clickable.

    Hi both friends glad to see you and sorry to bother you again,

    I think now i should avoid more experiments, by trying some menus and custom menus i have lost the standard menu bar and my header as well. I also now deleted the custom menu but still no change, should i need to activate the theme again in order to get back my previous settings?

    To return to your theme’s normal navigation:
    dashboard —> appearance —> menus —> theme locations —> select the empty line from the dropdown for ‘primary navigation’ —> save

    @wealthze, if you haven’t already, why not register another WordPress.com blog, set it to “private” and use it for testing? That way you aren’t implementing changes on your “live” site.

    Continued form above: If you go to my home page you will see what I mean. All of my other pages show and I can edit them or delete them. Why can’t I find menu to edit or delete???

    To edit your blog’s menus, access the editor via the > Dashboard (left hand columns) Appearance -> Menus area of your blog’s dashboard.

    Please read this support documentation entry > http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

    Editing pages screen > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/edit-pages-screen/

    Also note that as soon as you publish a post the “404” page not found on your front page error message will disappear.
