Adding a new menu item

Topics: Themes

I just installed BE and would like ot create a new menu item.  From previous reading it sound like there isnt an easy way from the admin menu so I have opened up the site.master file in my theme directory and added a new href (which I now see in the menu) but I have no idea what else I need to do?

Do i need to create a whole new .aspx page and link it to that?  (I cant imagine it would be this difficult) 

So for someone very new to BE, could you please tell me the next step for a static page (there is one post already similar to this but it really didnt make sense)

P.S. Im using the BrightSide Theme and BE

Thank you, TheGNUbie

you need to add the new menu in the web.sitemap, this file contains all the admin menu, you can edit this file this is present in the root folder.

yes you have to create a page for that and write the code in that page for what you are creating that page for.
