Creating Wordpress Menu
« on: Jun 03, 2013 »

I was reading the MOB course today on wordpress menu. And don't seem to understand some things.

MY QUESTIONS


After clicking "menu" on the left admin sidebar, what you'll see are these three items that we can add to the menu

1)Pages
2)Categories and
3)custom links


Now I want to ask, like in the "MOB course" where a custom link was created for "Nigerian jobs", then page for "sample page" and categories for "uncategorized".


Am confused with all of these. It contradicts what I read in other ebooks as in you have to get to the left admin bar and click on pages to create pages. Click on Post to create posts. And categories to create categories.


But as regards the example given in the MOB course, where does the Nigerians jobs link leads to. Is it a link to an outside page or internal page maybe that's why custom link was chosen or what ?

Then, more explanations as regards creating a page from the left admin sidebar and using a custom menu? What are the differences in using a custom menu and using the admin left sidebar?

I can't wait to start BLOGGING.

Thank you.

What you are creating in the menu are LINKS to pages (or posts or categories) and not the actual pages themselves.

For example, the only way to create a page is to use the left admin bar but once you have that page and you want to link to it from your menu so then you add a link to it in your menu according to the descriptions given in the material.

A custom link allows you to add your own link or URL either to a page/post/category/tag/media on your site or an external link. If I'm not mistaken, the Nigerian Jobs link in the material you are referring to probably points to You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login which is an external site.

P.S: Wordpress creates dedicated pages for each category or tag where it lists all the posts that you have placed under that category. Same for tags. When you select a category while creating the menu, it causes a link to the dedicated page for that category to be added to the menu

Does this answer your question?
Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.
