How to Link to Home Page & Category Pages in WordPress Menu

Posted on May 19th, 2014

When you need a CMS database-driven site that clients can update themselves – an editable site – you have several choices out there; I prefer to use WordPress. But being able to customise a template to exact client specifications is hard ad you take a risk with the limitations of each template. So why not design your own?

Well, it’s not going to be a simple HTML/CSS standard website design of course, there are hundreds of files in a WordPress theme to deal with and problems can be a nightmare to resolve. Bit it’s worth it in the end. One of the basics to master is being able to create your own WordPress menu so that you can have full control and create your own menu. WordPress allows you to create menus of course, but it’s nice to have full control over your menu links depending on how you add your pages to your site. You can contact us at Fizz Web Design Chelmsford about us designing your own WordPress-based website too of course.

There is a spate of hacking going on right now that affects sites built on a WordPress platform or a Joomla platform. This can be especially devastating for web design companies who we may rely on for SEO & security advice. While I can’t give too much specific advice on Joomla, I can give you some basic advice on tightening up WordPress security.
