When I visit Appearance → Menu, I can add custom links, but not any links I've already created under Links. How can I do this?


You can't add link/blogroll type items to the main navigation - add them as custom links instead.


To be more precise, you could do it, but you would need to write some code that hooked into the menu creation/editing section, present a list of blogroll links in a metabox, allowed you to choose from them, and then added these links to your menu. Seems easier to just add the ones you want as custom links.

  • I suppose you don't know a plugin that does this already? It seems to be such a logical request. – Jan Fabry May 10 '11 at 12:28
  • @jan I did a quick bit of searching, but didn't find anything – anu May 10 '11 at 13:22

Under the Screen Options tab in the upper right corner of the UI, make sure all boxes are checked for everything you want visible- pages, posts, custom post types, taxonomies, etc..

  • Did so, but there's no checkbox for "links". – barrycarter May 10 '11 at 1:52
  • ah, sorry, misunderstood your question. – Milo May 10 '11 at 13:41
