Why not try reading the documentation: http://www.dotnetblogengine.net/wiki/

Documentation isn't took much help i am a novice so a lot of the stuff i don't understand i need something that is pretty much a laymans explanation. not mention i have had so many problems just getting this to work on go daddy that i am afraid to try anything on my own for fear that it may quit working. it is already throwing random exceptions from time to time. but i do need to work out the bugs and bridge the gap in what i don't know because i need to add more apps like a forum and eventually a trouble ticket system and a shopping cart.

Hi Lois Wakeman,

I do this all time, find the theme your using in the Theme folder and edit the Site.master file.

<div id="menu">
<ul>
<li><asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" NavigateUrl="~/default.aspx" runat="server">Home</asp:HyperLink></li>
<li><asp:HyperLink ID="hlUnique" NavigateUrl="~/somelink.aspx" runat="server">Some Link</asp:HyperLink></li>

Make sure your Hyperlink ID properties is unique, you can called it anything you want example ID="hlMylink"

Kind of difficult to help without an idea of an error message.

Are you using a local machine or hosted on the web ?

Have you tried....

Firsty, changing Custom Errors to 'Off' in the web.config

Or

Running it through Visual Studio in debug mode
