    How do you make one of Navigation tab click able to other website instead of page content?

    Thanks

    Erik,

    Thanks for the question. I use the page links to plugin–works like a charm.

    Remember however to update your sitemap to exclude any pages you send to external links.

    Hi Holly,

    Just want to say that your video tutorials have been a lifesaver. This is my first time making a wordpress blog/website using Flexibility3. Thanks to your great tutorials I am slowly getting a grip of things.

    I’m so glad I could help. If there is anything else I can help you with–let me know.

    How do you center the navigation tabs?

    Hi Holly,

    Thanks for your very clear tutorials. Really helps a ton green IM wannabe’s like myself.

    I just have one question on Flexibility 3 theme: How do I add more ‘Menus’ on the Navigation bar? Right now, I only have ‘Home’ up there. And I don’t see ‘Menu’ when I go to ‘Appearance’ in my wp dashboard. Really baffles me.

    Hope you can help.

    Thanks,
    TJ

    TJ,

    As you add pages they will show up on the Nav bar.

    Go to Pages
    Click Add New

    That should work.

    I’m glad you enjoyed the videos.

    Thanks
    Holly

    Shirley,

    I’m not sure if there is a way unless you work with the style sheet. Since I don’t know css–I don’t mess with it. but if I find an answer I’ll keep you posted.

    Hi,

    thanks for the video. I don’t understand the home button feature in the navigation.
    If I now add a page which has the content for the homepage it will be automaticall be displayed as an additional page, so whats the point?

    Or am I missing some wordpress configuration thing to make the page only for the homepage and not for the automatic navigation bar created by flexibility?



  10. Holly Powell on July 27, 2011 at 3:24 pm

    There are some configurations–you can use Menus to only show the pages you want. Also, you can use the “Reading” section to show the page you want as a homepage and where the posts should go to.

    I hope this answers your question.

    How do I center the navigation menu?



  12. Holly Powell on March 8, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    Pinoytech,
    That is one thing I do not know how to do. My designers could probably do this with some custom formatting. Shoot me a message and I’ll reply to see if we can get this done for you.

    Hi Holly:

    Already up to #11…and I can’t believe I’m still seeing that dang screen below the header…but I know you’re getting to that and I think you have the patience of jobe! LOL

    Wonderful, wonderful on the videos…I think I’m going to start getting in the habit of recording my screen strokes…so would you mind sharing how many takes you had to do? Pauses? Edits?
    You seem like such a natural for these kind of videos!

    My question is also about the navigation bar…Your site shows them ending very nicely on the right….is that left space going to clear up as pages are added? Or did you already have someone modify for centering…somewhat???

    I LOVE that you’re using the flexibility theme on your site…You look mahvelous….Absolutely mahvelous



  14. Holly Powell on June 4, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Cheryll,

    You made me laugh today. I looked at your site and I see you got far enough in the video training to remove the Feature Box.

    I used Jing for all of my videos believe it or not and I do have to pause because sometimes it will take too long for the site to load, etc. and with Jing you only have 5 minutes to record a video–so if I saw that I was going over I’d just throw out there last minute that this might 2-3 videos.

    I didn’t have any customization done on this site–because I wanted folks to see how flexibility works without any fancy design tricks.

    Hope this help.



  15. Holly Powell on June 4, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    Hi Cheryll,

    I used the header widget (in the widget) area to get my social icons in the top right side of the header.

    My secret? Click on add post, add your social icons (feel free to steal mine–just right click and save image as). Link your social widgets with the blog post.
    Click on the html tab and there is your fancy, schmancy html code for the right side of your header–pop that code into your widget area and it should work–as long as you have a “shorter width” header so your social icons can work.

    Let me know if you have anymore questions.

    Hi Holly,

    Great, clear vids. Well done.

    One question though, I only want the home page tab to be showing at any one time.

    Even when I create my footer links they appear on the nav bar.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    Jason.

    Jason,

    I’m not sure what you mean?

    What is your site so I can take a look.

    Holly



  18. Jason on February 27, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    Hi Holly,

    Sorry, I didn’t explain the question clearly.

    I’m trying to create my footer links but I don’t want them to be a tab on the nav bar. For example I don’t want my “privacy policy” etc to be on the nav bar. It seems that every time I create a new page, it pops up on the nav bar.

    Is there a way to only show the Home tab and not other pages that I have created?

    Thanks for getting back!

    Jason.



  19. Holly Powell on February 28, 2013 at 7:28 am

    Jason,

    Yes there is a way. I created 3 videos showing you 3 different ways:

    http://simplehowtovideos.com/how-to-build-custom-menus-in-wordpress/

    http://simplehowtovideos.com/how-to-exclude-pages-from-navigation-flexsqueeze-training/

    http://simplehowtovideos.com/how-to-use-exclude-pages-from-navigation-plugin/

    I prefer the custom menus methods: Appearance/Menus–see custom menus above.

    Holly
