Continuing my series on WordPress tutorials to help those with a Custom WordPress Site, today I am sharing a really simple tutorial on how to add external links into your navigation.  For example, on my navigation at the top of my site you see there is a media button.  But if you click on that link, it actually takes you off my main domain and transfers you over to a subdomain of my site which is

I wanted to inculde this as a part of my main site as it includes a lot of great content that can be beneficial to those visiting my main domain.  Sometimes when I am building custom WordPress sites for my clients this same type of thing can come into play.  There are times where they may use multiple sites and don’t want to have to recreate it on the new domain.  Instead they want to simply add a link.  This tutorial below teaches you how to do this.

If you have any questions, or need help with your custom WordPress site, feel free to contact me.
