  4. Bonnie, did you take the Legal out of the Main-Nav after you put it into the Footer?

  5. Hi Bonnie

    Got to doing this. I’m using Twenty Ten and under Appearances/Theme it says it only supports 1 menu so I’m assuming that my top and bottom have to be the same menu.

    Doing this, I notice that the footer menu doesn’t have the same appearance as at the top where you just see the main headings across the page and then if you highlight a menu item, it will show you sub-menus under it.

    Is this correct?

    • I show you how to add a second footer navigation in the video. Did you watch the video?

      You are correct, the bottom menu doesn’t act or look like the top menu. You could of course achieve a similar look and feel, no doubt, with customized CSS. But I would have to ask why you would want the bottom menu to look like the top?

      You have the freedom to make the bottom navigation look different so why not take that idea and explore the possibilities?

      • I guess it threw me when inside the menus it tells me that it only supports one menu …. so how can I have a different top and bottom menu!! Confusing to my simple mind :)

        And why have them the same? I’m an accountant and I like things to be balanced!! Yeah, rather anal :)

        Having said that, I do like the top menu as it is compact, everything doesn’t have to be showing. The footer menu takes up space, too.

        However, I will live with it as I’m not ready to get into heave CSS programming just yet. In fact, I’m not even ready to get into any light CSS programming :)

        Thanks Bonnie. Think I can now tick this one off my list!

        • LOL, I can certainly understand how you feel Tamsin.

          Even when I post a message 2 days after the day it was supposed to be placed on the blog, I like to add it to the specific day it applied to. So… I get you girl!

          When I have a moment, I’ll play with the CSS side of things and see what I can do. :)

  6. Loving this learn by doing stuff, Bonnie! :)

  10. This was very helpful. I’m glad you showed us a tutorial on adding a footer. I didn’t know this.

  11. Another great tutorial Bonnie. I hadn’t even considered using the menu option in the Footer section. This would also work well if you want to add specific page links in the sidebar widget area too.

    I have a few posts that I might want to group together. Thanks for this tip.
