    You can edit the main menu by going to the bottom of your themes index.template.php file. There there will be a list of already added link, just follow the same format :)

    For further help, take a look at the forum in my signature :)

    Do you want to add it to the menubar? The says 'Forum', 'Search' etc?

    Or elsewhere. Please tell me exactly where you want it :) A screenshot could prove useful :)

    is this the forum?
    http://forums.mangaraiders.com/

    it may be different then the default index.template.php
    i tried to download a copy of that theme from SMF to look at that file, but it was corrupted.

    i found a copy

    in index.template.php, find

    // Show the [help] button.
    	echo	'<li><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=help">' , $txt[119] , '</a></li>';
    Code (markup):
    add after:

    // How about an extra button.
    	echo	'<li><a href="your_link.com">' , $txt[1190] , '</a></li>';
    Code (markup):
    you'll have to find this
    txt[119] = 'Help';
    Code (markup):
    in index.english.php and add another line,
    txt[1190] = 'Help';
    Code (markup):
    change Help to whatever text you want to show
