How to add pages in Navigation bar in Magazine Basic theme (9 posts)

    I am running a wordpress blog http://www.jayshreebajoria.com/ using the magazine basic theme 2.7.2

    I want to add a page "about" in the navigation bar where home and other categories are. But for some reason it only allows me to put categories there and not pages. And categories are only through adding posts which I don't want to do for my bio. Is it possible to put pages there along with categories in the top nav bar?

    Many thanks

    Yes, the wordpress theme menĂ¹, I mean the same place where you was adding the categories. There is the field to add the pages in the menĂ¹ that will show on the nav bar.

    Hello there,

    I have this same issue. I have looked within the categories section but can't see where the option is to add a single page.

    did you figure out how to do this?

    Many thanks.

    OK so I create a new menu under appearance > menu.

    Then I select pages and categories I want in the navigation menu.

    Then I save and under 'Theme location' I select main navigation and select the name of the menu I just created.

    This is good and works as I expect but I lose the home tab.

    Does anyone know how I can keep this tab when updating the menu?

    Sussed it!!

    in the custom menu configuration I click on "view all" under pages and was able to select home.

    all sorted thanks!!

    That worked great. I've been struggling with this for 2 weeks. I thought about changing themes, but I LOVE MAGAZINE BASIC!
