Thesis had probably the best system for organizing navigation in WordPress. However, that has all changed with WordPress 3.0. The default navigation system built into the latest versions of WordPress features an easy drag-and-drop system that surpasses any previous attempts at navigation management. Here’s how to get started using it:
Configure Thesis to Use WordPress Navigation
In the WordPress Dashboard navigate to Thesis Site Options –> Navigation Menu and choose “WordPress nav menu”
Configure the WordPress Navigation
Now comes the fun part. We can build our navigation using the easy interface.
Step 1) Create a new menu, call it “Primary” and click “Save Menu”
Step 2) Once saved, “Primary” will show up in the “Theme Locations” drop-down box. Select Primary and click “Save”
Step 3) Now you can add pages, posts, categories, or custom links to your menu. Just remember to click “Save” when your finished.
Want to open a link in a new window? Maybe add CSS class selectors for further customization? It’s easy!
While on the Menus page, click on “Screen Options” near the top-right corner of the page. A drop-down will give you several more “hidden” options. Simply check the options you’d like to add.
