I am wondering where I can create menus without using the admin panel, or if it is a waste of time. In admin you can go to
Appearance => Menus
Where you can select a number of pages to add to the menu, select if it is the primary navigation in the theme etc etc
I assume these menus are simply stored in the wp database (since they contain links to wp pages, also stored in the database?)
If they are indeed stored in the database as opposed to templates, is what I am asking a waste of time? I assume I would have to look up the page id of the pages I would want to link to and these may be hardcoded?
