If you’ve been reading my posts then you know that I use the Thesis theme for the WebBriefcase website. The main reason I like it is because it makes it easy to optimize and monetize my blog. It also has many features that make otherwise  tedious tasks something to look forward too. Seriously.

In this post, I’m going to share with you how the Thesis theme actually makes managing the menu items on your navigation bar… FUN. Here are three ways you can manipulate your navigation with the Thesis wordpress theme without getting too techie.

Add and Remove Menu Items

Adding or removing menu items in your navigation is as easy as checking and unchecking a tick box.

Reorder Menu Items

Normally, to change the order of your menu items, you would need to edit each page’s order value. With the Thesis theme, however, all you need to do is click and drag. This is a definite time saver if you have quite a few items to reorder.

Rename Menu Items

Renaming your menu items would normally involve having to change the title of each page that appears in your navigation. With the Thesis theme, to rename a menu item, you just click on the item and type in a new name.
