Why is it so complicated to add a new menu item and link it to a new page?

I’ve already created a new page from CMS and I can’t find any easy solutions on how to add a new menu item and link it to this new page?

Any help on this please?

Thanks

Magento to does not allow an easy way to add cms pages to your main navigation menu with the categories.. - you can add it in the navigation templates however which should not be that difficult.  if you need a more dynamic means you can add a block for it and then update a cms block accordingly..  and if you want soemthing even easier than this - and willing to spend a little cake.. there are few menu mods that allow you to do this pretty nicely. 

as far as adding cms links to page content .. you can do this with widgets in version 1.4 and above.

Just another one of Magento’s huge misses.  It is absolutely ridiculous that you can’t add a navigation menu item for a CMS page from the backend.  Every single ecommerce website on the planet has an about us or contact us page that needs to be linked to from the navigation menu.
