    Okay- I’ve read lots of training and links- and for some crazy reason, I can’t seem to get my words to show up in the menu along the bottom of my header.

    I would like to have 4 pages (or menu items), in addition to my main page. Do I understand this correctly- that these “pages” can house categories to store my posts that will have already appeared on my main page? So by using the navigation menu- I won’t have to use categories in the sidebar?

    So if I have a post on my main page about puppies and categorize it with the name puppies- and then place it under the page in the menu entitled puppies- does all that work out?

    Thanks very much.

    The blog I need help with is edenstream.com.

    What you want to do is to create a custom menu and then you can add actual categories to it as well as pages, posts, custom links etc. They are very flexible.

    @ifulnuri2011: You are talking about the “Preview” button that appears on the right when you are editing a post or a page? It should be there. Try emptying your cache memory and deleting your cookies.

    If that does not help, please create a new topic:

    Thank you for your reply. I think I’m confused. I have been to the page you have suggested (a few times actually:) Here is what is in my imagination:
    I will have four “pages,” which will appear in my menu bar under my header. From there visitors will be able to navigate to see posts of a specific type which I have there. For instance, in my menu you might find Labrador, Doberman, Poodle- I would regularly post on these subjects and a person could navigate to read only Poodle articles by clicking on “Poodle” in my menu bar. I would also like to have a different look on that page (header, background etc.)

    When I went to menu- I created four menus, (even though the page says my theme has one), thinking that I could then create categories or pages to be associated with each and that by doing this, I would see the words in my menu bar under my header. From there, I can’t seem to be a way to create a new category, there is a default ‘uncategorized.’ I have read about menus, pages, and the difference between posts and pages, but I’m still confused.
    When I go to “pages” it looks like I can make a title- but then there is a text box and a publish button.
    Appreciate any help!

    a) You’re confusing the top nav menu (the whole set of tabs) with the menu items (each tab).
    b) You can’t create a menu consisting of non-existent items: first you publish posts and assign them to the right categories, or at least create the categories in Posts>Categories, then you create the menu (Appearance>Menus: create a menu, title it, select the categories from the Categories module, add them to the menu, save menu, select it from the pulldown in the Theme Locations module, save).

    I have an issue with I’m creating the “Main Menu” in the Menus. No matter how I added the ‘categories’ that I want to show in “Main Menu’ , its taking all the ‘categories’ . I have 20 ‘categories’ and its cluttered all the way in the “Main Menu”. Even I select nothing its still taking all the categories.

    Any one has this issue?

    And please don’t ask the same question three times. It just wastes the volunteers’ time.
