    The title of the blog is the link to the "front" of the site.

    If you did what I did and removed that, then you just need to add a new link in the sidebar that goes back to your root page.

    Unless you've got some crazy custom setup with iframes or something.

    Theres actually a method where you can main links at the top of the page. I don't think it should require any manual link creating.

    Take a look at this blog.

    See the links at the top of the page where it says, Home, About, Photos, SHADE etc?

    This is what I want.

    I've played with WordPress a little and my understanding is that you need to put it in your sidebar or you need to use a theme that has a specific place for it.

    Oh, I see. Those tabs are made by the theme, and using the pages feature in WordPress. I haven't messed around with it, no use to me. But that's what it is.

    There's absolutely no need to stick to the WordPress theme methods by the way. I set mine up as a completely custom page, it looks and acts nothing like most of the WordPress stuff you see.

    I've always thought that this was a good example of what can be done with WordPress but there are probably even better examples. (Note: this is not my site)

    Hmmm...different pages?

    I think that might be the reason why. I curently have the main 'Home' page and thats it. Maybe if i add another page it should create that tab for me. I'll give it a shot.

    Im using the default theme for WP.

    Yeah, you should see the tabs once you have more pages.

    Yeah, that's a decent setup on that one, sulusulu, though nothing fantastic or original. Although looking at the Q1 on there made me want one. XD

    Why wouldn't you be able to? WordPress is PHP driven. I have a custom PHP script to either randomly select a theme or accept user input via a bookmark and it works fine.

    Well, I have the PHP code. How would I implement it as a page in WP?

    As a whole page? I assume you just create a new page and paste your code into it, but I'm not sure as I've never gone that far with it.

    WordPress's website has a lot of information and support available. When you're in your WP admin panel, click on the documentation link at the very bottom. I have never not found an answer in there.
