    Hello: I have created a thematic child theme and been trying to add 'Home' menu to the menu tab bar. I currently have two menu items
    1. About and \
    2. Recipe Index.

    I would like to place 'Home' menu before About.

    Can anyone suggest how i can do that ?

    thanks for your help!

  2. Create a custom menu in wordpress 3.0+. then add a custom link. assign said menu to "primary" location.

    Thanks! that worked... btw, i am following your menu post to style menus and its very helpful info.

    One more question...
    How do i create a Container which would contain assign, header, main content, side bar, primary and secondary asides. Can you please share on how do i go about doing that ?
    Reason i want to do that is so that i can change the background color of the site without affecting the colors of (assign, header, main content, side bar etc.).

  4. Hi there,

    I tried to create a custom menu but it doesn't give me the option to choose "primary" location. When I add the custom menu, it wipes out my other menu links. Did I do something wrong?

  5. what? yes of course it gives you the option to choose which menu goes in the primary location.

    when you set a custom menu it uses that menu instead of the list of all "pages" that is uses as a fallback. you'll need to add them to your menu if you still want them in it
