    Ok so I guess I am a noob with wordpress. Can a pro help me out?

    Basically the problem is I'm trying to create my terms of use and privacy policy. I have the content for it, I even have the text for them in the footer. Now how the FUCK do I create the page and link it to that text in the footer?

    If I use the Create Page function is goes up top with the things like Home, About Me, Contact...

    Help!

    Well that is what I checked first, the header code. But the problem is the code I need to delete is not in the header code for some reason. All it really has is this:

    <ul id="NaviBar">
    <li><a <?php if (is_page('home')) echo('class="current" '); ?>href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/">Home</a></li>
    <?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&depth=1&title_li='); ?>
    </ul>

    Deleting that will make it so that every time I create a page it will no longer create the page in the header?

    Damn that got rid of my entire header bar. I still want the pages like About Me, Contact, & Subscribe to appear up there though.

    I just don't understand why it is so difficult to add a page to only the footer and not the header.

    lol now that I've put the code back in to get my header back, the header is broken. :(

    what theme are you using? some themes are easy to configure and some are almost impossible without messing other things up.

    just create <a href=>privacypolicy</a> at your header manualy
    after
    Code:
    <?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&depth=1&title_li='); ?>

    Thank you guys for the help but due to the fact that I generally don't really like this theme anyways and the info cheva just gave me about themes being easier to edit, I think I'm going to switch.

    Since I don't really know much about css I won't do thesis, but does anyone have any suggestions of a nice theme that is fairly easy to play with?

    i think iv got a fairly easy way for u to do this..

    u cud either just use a plugin hxxp://wordpress[dot]org/extend/plugins/exclude-pages/

    or find this
    <?php wp_list_pages();?>

    in ur header file. i think it wud be there
    or depending where coralis has its nav code
    and then replace it with

    <?php wp_list_pages('exclude=21,22' ); ?>

    21 and 22 being the page ids you dont want to show in the list

    hope it helps :)
