Web site I'm using is techified and I must alter the navbar to link straight to the publish, not the course because it does now.

This is actually the code for header.php. I am presuming this is in which the change could be made.

<div id="navigation_area">
<ul id="nav">
<?php wp_list_categories('exclude=1&hide_empty=0&orderby=name&show_count=0&use_desc_for_title=1&title_li='); ?>
<li><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>">Home</a></li>
</ul>
</div>

Would using <?php wp_list_pages( $args ); ?> rather than list categories work?
