Hello there,

I would like to add a front menu button (viz. Home, About, Archive etc.) to my blog that links to another website. WordPress only shows the pages that I have created using dashboard in the front menu.

I hope my question is clear. Let's assume I have a Yoga blog and a Yoga store at another website. I'd like to add a "STORE" button -- after my Home, About and other pages -- that links outside the WP blog.

Thanks for your help. :)

PS - I am using lightword theme.

Lightword theme as wp_nav_menu enabled so you can create your menu from the

Appearance → Menus panel

where you have Custom Links and that is just what you are looking for. you can read more on how to use WordPress Menus panel

Hope this helps

Thanks! I had the "Use basic wordpress pages/categories in front menu" options checked in the theme settings. So I was not able to see that custom menu that I created anywhere. Took me hours to figure that out. It was helpful. :) – Prateek Mishra Feb 20 '11 at 12:19
