    Hey all, So I used this guide: http://codex.wordpress.org/Navigation_Menus so that my theme would register a custom menu. What I am having trouble with is where to put the

    <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'header-menu' ) ); ?>


    So that my menu bar is displayed. My site is:
    http://dev.progressivemediaconcepts.com/
    What I want to do, is replace the current menu options, with the Custom Menu I created, but KEEP the nav bar layout, style. Petty much swap the current menu for the custom menu, but keeping all styling... Help!

    Actually, check in your dashboard - Appearance>Themes> in your active theme there may be a theme settings menu just underneath and to the right of the thumbnail image of the theme. See if your theme supports custom menus. If it does, you can make one right there.
    If not, I'm not sure how to help you yet - I'm going to do a bit of research and see what I can find out.

    That was the original issue. It said it did not support native menus. I used that tutorial to add a menu to my functions.php. Now it says my theme supports 1 menu. Which is great. Issue is. MY current website is using the pages and page order to create the menu - not a custom menu. When I activated the custom menu, and inserted the <?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'header-menu' ) ); ?> into the header, it got all messed up! the Current menu was dropped down below the bar, and the custom menu showed up in a single vertical column.

    My assumption is I will have to create a css styling for the custom menu. My issue is - i dont know where to begin. LOL

    I was hoping to, sort of like insert the custom menu into the current CSS styling of the menu bar ya know?
