    some basic questions regarding menu,links,blogs in WP.


    have some beginner questions regarding menus/links.

    question 1

    my current code for the top nav:

    Code PHP:
    <?php wp_nav_menu(array('menu_id' => 'primary'))?>

    Thats all i got, now i want to add fontello icons next to every pagelink, how do I do this? When creating a static site this could look like this: <a href="#><i class="icon-home"></i>Home</a> ... but how can i do this in WP when all i see is the php above?

    (im a noob to WP)

    question 2

    So i got an image on my site, that i want to make a link of. But the static <a href="imgdir"><img></a> wont work. So the question is.. how do i link between pages?

    question 3

    I have made a template file named news.php with template name "blog", and I have added this code:

    Code PHP:
    				<?php while(have_posts()): the_post()?>
    					<h2><a href="<?php the_permalink()?>"><?php the_title() ?></a></h2>
    					<?php the_content();?>
    				<?php endwhile;?>

    The problem is that nothing is shown when i create a new page and use the blog template. The exact same code works fine if i put it on index.php.

    This will show all the options you have available to you for the wp_nav_menu function:

    I'm not sure what you're asking with your image question. Are you trying to insert an image into a post or page? Or your theme?

    I don't understand what you're trying to accomplish with your news.php file. Here's how file naming works in wordpress:
