Creating Custom Menus in Wordpress
One of the things that is recommended in the Getting Started action plan is to check a small, 'hide from menu' box on the post that you're writing. This has caused a bit of confusion (from what I can see in the forum) so I thought I'd write a short guide on how you can make a custom menu for your site. That's right, no more crazy little check boxes, just pure, control freak precision.
Here's the problem:
Every time you add a page to your Wordpress blog you'll add it to the main menu (unless you check the box). They're all added in a jumble. What if there are a few pages that you don't want in the main menu? Or what if you want a post in the menu? Or perhaps a category? Or an affiliate link? Maybe you want a special menu in the sidebar, with hand picked links?
