You can't actually add a link to that widget via the widget, but you can edit on into your skin. Find the "Menu" container. It'll start with something like this:

Code

<div class="top_menu">
  <ul>
  <?php
    // ------------------------- "Menu" CONTAINER EMBEDDED HERE --------------------------
    // Display container and contents:
    // Note: this container is designed to be a single <ul> list
    skin_container( NT_('Menu'), array(

It'll end with something like this:

Code

// ----------------------------- END OF "Menu" CONTAINER -----------------------------
  ?>
  </ul>
  &nbsp;
</div>

Now add in a few other LIs linked as you see fit:

Code

// ----------------------------- END OF "Menu" CONTAINER -----------------------------
  ?>
  <li><a href="http://wonderwinds.com" title="best guy ever">wonderwinds</a></li>
  </ul>
  &nbsp;
</div>

Your actual linkage may vary ;)

I'm thinking a lot of these widgets need some hacking. Like this one should have an "add a link" option. I dunno. I gotta go to work. Work sucks. yuck. Hey that did that thing that poems do! You know: where one word sounds like a word before it? Wow I'm cool.

where would you like it link to, and do you have a link at your webpage ?

and about the look , it's possibly your 'common links' widget and general link styles are styled differently

What I want is a link in the MENU part that goes to my forums, so it should be called forums.

For example Home- contact- FORUMS=>www.cnn.com
