Main Link in WordPress
Im new to WordPress, does anyone know how to create a main link, like 'Home' on the page? I can find the option for it!

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.Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue. -- Scott Adams

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)Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue. -- Scott Adams

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

I can't use PHP on these page can I?

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?
March 26th, 2007, 09:08 PM #12
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.
