    Hey all,

    Am a little new to WP and stuck on something.

    I need to know how to add/edit a tab menu across the top of the screen?

    Currently i have 3 tabs, 2 of which return a 404 because they have nothing in them . How do i rename these or add something to them?

    Much appreciated.

    I think this is about your wordpress theme. You need some basic knowledge in HTML and PHP in order to modify anything.

    What I usually do is

    1. go to wp-content->themes->(themes that you are using)-> download the header.php back to your computer.
    2. Open the header.php file using any coding software, I'm using dreamweaver to do this.
    3. Look for something like <ul><li>, it is HTML code and you can start modify from here.
    I just give some common steps for you. It might be different for different themes. If you want, you can post your code over here and let us change it for you.

    Look in your 'pages' tab. Is one of your tabs on your menu 'about me'?
    If it is, in your pages tab, you'll see a page named 'about me'.
    On the left, you can add a new page or edit & rename the pages that are already there.
