I have a Wordpress blog. On the same domain, I have some other stuff hosted that isn't part of my WP install.

I want to link to those other places on my domain from the top menu bar (nav bar) on my blog. How can I do that?

The theme is Lightword, relevant header.php code follows:

<body <?php body_class(); ?>>
<div id="wrapper">
<?php lightword_header_image(); ?>
<div id="header">
<?php lightword_rss_feed(); ?>

<div id="top_bar">
<div class="center_menu">
<ul id="front_menu" <?php global $lw_remove_searchbox, $lw_use_wp_menus; $lw_menu_width = ""; if($lw_remove_searchbox == "true") $lw_menu_width = " class=\"expand\" "; echo $lw_menu_width; ?>>
<?php echo lightword_homebtn(__('Home','lightword')); ?>
if ( function_exists('wp_nav_menu') && $lw_use_wp_menus != "true") {
$lightword_menu = wp_nav_menu( array( 'menu' => 'lightword_top_menu', 'echo' => false, 'menu_id' => 'front_menu', 'container' => '', 'theme_location' => 'lightword_top_menu', 'link_before' => '<span>', 'link_after' => '</span>' ) );
$lightword_menu = preg_replace( array( '/^<ul id="front_menu" class="menu">/', '/\n<\/ul>$/' ), '', $lightword_menu);
echo $lightword_menu;
echo lightword_wp_list_pages();
<?php echo lightword_searchbox(); ?>

<div id="content">
  • could you post the code in your header.php file for the theme you are using? – Keith Groben Feb 2 '11 at 1:23
  • @Keith done. Nav bar stuff should be somewhere around $lightword_menu at line 12 – Rafe Kettler Feb 2 '11 at 1:45
  • Ok, you will have to experiment with where exactly to place the code. It's difficult for me to see where to put it without knowing if the php is generating a list item or not. Try this after : echo $lightword_menu; echo '<li><a href="link.html">My Link</a></li>'; Like I said. It may be difficult to know exactly where to place it. But that will give you a start. You can also look at the source code and find the nav links and see if they have classes or id's, then you'd know what to ad there too. – Keith Groben Feb 2 '11 at 2:32
  • @Keith, no need, I figured it out without having to mess with any PHP. Right around the time I was trying to concatenate my last menu entry with half of $lightword_menu, I realized there was an option buried in the settings pages. – Rafe Kettler Feb 2 '11 at 3:04

    I didn't bother migrating this anywhere since it has been resolved. – John Conde Feb 2 '11 at 20:56

Check the settings on the backend of Wordpress. :)
