I don’t think you should use the menu from the cms.
If the theme is build correctly then the menu should be generated from the categories you add in the back-end under ‘Catalog->Manage categories’ as children for the ‘Root Catalog’.
Make sure the categories are active and have ‘Include in menu’ set to yes.
Clear the cache when you are done.
