Edit The Top Navigation Menu?

The easiest way to edit the top navigation menu is to add/edit product categories under catalog > manage categories

A category can be set to show either products, CMS content, or both

1) So say you want to have a top navigation menu called “About Us” make a new category with that name

2) Then make a new CMS static block with that name

3) Then under the edit category page set that category to show only CMS content

There is also a more complex method described below:

If you are comfortable using ftp and a text editor, then follow the steps below:

To add a link to the top menu where the categories list out: say you want to link to a CMS page or some other link

1. The process is basically to open the file: /public_html/app/design/frontend/base/default/template/page/html/top.links.phtml

From there you’ll want to find the <?php echo $_menu ?>  tag and paste something like:

<li class=”level0”><a href=”http://linktomypage.com/newpage”><span>My Page</span></a></li>

or for a home link:
<li class=”<?php echo !$_anyActive ? ‘active’ : ” ?>”><a href=”<?php echo $this->getUrl(”)?>”><?php echo $this->__(‘Home’) ?></a></li>

If you want it before the categories then put it before the <?php echo $_menu ?> code, if you want it after then put it after this code.

2. Now go to your admin Create a static page in Magento under CMS > Pages with newpage as the link and you’re good to go. If you are not linking to a CMS page then ignore this step.

If you want to add a link to where you see the my wishlist and my account links, the file to edit is app/design/frontend/base/default/template/page/template/links.phtml

Also, for changes to show up make sure you clear your site cache under system > cache management.
