To tell your theme what should be rendered as your main navigation, we need to setup a menu in Wordpress and assign it as our main navigation.

First of all, you need to create a new menu and add your menu items. For detailed instructions, see the WordPress documentation. In this example we add all existing pages by default and remove one that we do not want.
