<li><a href='#'>About</a></li>
<li><a href='#'>Post RSS</a></li>
<li><a href='#'>Comment RSS</a></li>
<li><a href='#'>Edit</a></li>

To add your own links to the Menu, simply change the symbol # with your own links. Or find the code similar to :

<li class='current'><a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl'>Home</a></li>
<li><a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl + &quot;feeds/posts/default&quot;'>Posts RSS</a></li>
<li><a expr:href='data:blog.homepageUrl + &quot;feeds/comments/default&quot;'>Comments RSS</a></li>
<li><a href='#'>Edit</a></li>
