    Hi, I'm looking on some insight on how to put my Home, Private Policy, Disclosure and Contact Us on the ad space that is designated for a Link Unit at the top on CTR Theme.

    I want to add all that in this blank space here. There is one option I see in CTR Theme settings that says use Tagline instead of Ad Link in that same spot, but I want to put my Home, PP, Contact Us in there instead.

    The title is right above that, so how would I do this?

    Hello mate,

    That block you are referring to pulls the tagline from your WordPress settings.

    Unfortunately when you enter your description in the WordPress interface, any HTML entered will be converted to safe characters, so when you pull it out, it will display the string literal of the HTML you entered.

    To get around this you can enter the HTML directly into the database.

    1) Log in via mySQL or phpMyAdmin and in the table 'wp_options' look for the row 'blogdescription' this is where you want to enter your HTML menu.

    2) Type in directly the HTML code you want to use to generate your new top menu.

    something like:
    Code:
    <a href="/" >Home</a> | <a href="/privacy">Privacy Policy</a> | <a href="/terms">Terms & Conditions</a> | <a href="/contact">Contact Us</a> 
    
    This will work nicely on your site. Obviously change the links to whatever you have set up your page links to be, maybe use the title tag too, and make the HTML more SEO friendly, but it should be enough to get you on your way..

    I just tested this and it will mess up the 'TITLE' of the page, which is defined in header.php

    You will need to change that header.php file from
    Code:
    echo " | $site_description";
    to
    Code:
    echo " | This is my text description, the site is about my niche";
    to get it working properly.

    It's a bit of a hack, and I guess there might be a more elegant solution, but it should get you up and running until you find something that is neater!

    I can't seem to find "wp_options"... hmm.

    EDIT: Disregard this, I found it!

    Okay, now I have a new problem. The Contact Us/PP works fine at the top. But, when I go to any of those pages, except for my home page, the title font is changed and looks like a real shitty font. How do I get it to keep the same font as on my home page on my Private Policy/Contact us and Disclosure page?
