Very new to this theme, I'm working on creating my site menu. I read a lot of posts on how to combine categories into the Page menu bar by creating a custom menu in Wordpress.

In several posts, it says to associate Menu1 with your page menu bar but I can't figure out how the heck to do that!

Could someone pleeeeeaaaase let me know how to do that? I'm going in circles and losing my mind...

THANK YOU!

Three steps... well actually four
  1. Breathe
  2. Put %pages in ATO>Style and edit Header Area where you want it
  3. Go to Appearance>Menus and create a menu
  4. In that same area assign the menu you just made to Menu 1 on the top left.
  5. Ask more questions if you are still lost
Yeah I know I said there were only four steps but who's counting.

Totally needed step 4. Thank you! A follow up question.... can I stylize the menus to look like tabs or something? Mine are all just in a row. Also, where would I create "sub-menus" for these. Thanks!

You can stylize like crazy but it isn't always easy for those not familiar with CSS, selectors, and the like. One of the styles that comes with Atahualpa (in the styles folder which is part of the downloaded zip) has tab type styles.

I you go to ATO>Export Import setting and export your current settings as a backup you can import the other styles and look in ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts to see what the code looks like and either use that style as a starting point for your theme or copy the code, import the setting you previously exported and past the code into CSS Inserts.

That may be way too much to tackle right now but wanted to give you the info. If you have a way of creating a test site that is one of the best ways to learn this theme as you do anything and not worry if you mess something up.

The sub menus are created by just dragging one of the menu items a little to the right.
