Is there a way to have static pages list in navigation tabs in Blogengine.net? So if I create an about page, I can have a tab read 'About' to access that page. This is something I have done in Wordpress.

If you want your "about" page to be the default home page of the blog then you can:

  • Go to Pages and add a new page
  • Set the Parent option to No Parent
  • Check the Is Front page checkbox

The will ensure that this page is the home page of your blog.

Alternatively, as blogengine.net is open source you can modify the source code yourself, so if you want to add a new menu item to a page you have created called "about" then you can

  • edit the site.master
  • add a new li in the menu section to point to your page e.g about.aspx
  • You need to ensure that your page that you have created is in the root of your blog.

Let me know if you need any further help
