Hello every body!
I want to add some pages to main navigation menu in my forum. Today I tried all the different methods, prescribed by various members, whole day but none of them worked for me. Please help me. Visit my forum through the following link. All I want is to add some pages next to calendar and help documents.
Link to the forum is http://www.iiustudents.com
Please don't mind but I am not coding expert so please keep your answer as simple as possible. Hope someone would response and will help me.
Thanks Heart
Go to the header template > Header

And you'll see your all your navs there and they'll start with <li> end with </li>
If you would like to add something just do this.. for example
<li><a href="websiteurl.com" style="color: #fff"><span> Example</span></a></li>

If you're trying to add dropdown menus here's a tutorial and I've followed this tutorial and made many dropdown but of course you'll have to play around with the .css

Thank you so much. Its working. The title of page appears there but can you please guide me how to add a proper page with some rules or like an ''About US'' page? I means a page that contain instructions and that can be readable by the visitors. I hope you have my point.  
Thanks in advance Heart

You can create custom pages with a plugin see : https://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=view&pid=486
You can easily make your own pages using this method: https://community.mybb.com/thread-116225.html

Sorry but can you guide me with the use of this plugin. I have knowledge coding etc. 
In the option of adding new page ''what name should I give to the page in option of Name?'' What is uri parameter? and how to enter it in the URI Parameter option? Should I set ''Use MyBB Template'' option to YES? and the other options. All these options you can see below.

I am a little confused here. In the above thread, he has not mentioned what to do with php file that was created in the start. I means ''He did not mention where to put somepage.php file''? Can you guide me here please?.
Thanks in advance
Let me explain.

- The name box is what you want to call the page i.e Test Page Name
 - The URI parmeter box is like http://site.com/misc.php?page=xxxx the "xxxx" part is what you enter in the URI parmeter box. Like if you want your page to be a about page you can enter “about” in the box and the URL would be http://site.com/misc.php?page=about.
 - The page content box is what you would want to display on the page.
 - If you use the MyBB template option it will display your site’s header and footer etc... so I recommend you use it.

I hope I helped you.

EDIT: I see your using MyBB 1.6 I also recommend you upgrade to MyBB 1.8.

You almost solved the problem but there is a little issue.
I created a page according to your instructions but it did not appear on navigation menu so I tried to add the page url in the template header in the following coding form
<li><a href="http://iiustudents.com/misc.php?page=aboutforum" style="color: #fff"><span> About Forum</span></a></li>
But when I click on save option, it shows 404 error and says you have no permission.
What should I do?
The page seems to be loading / working for me. To add it to the navigation menu go to

Admin CP -> Templates & Styles -> Templates -> * Your Theme * -> Header Templates -> header

Then add


<li><a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/misc.php?page=aboutforum" style="color: #fff"><span> About Forum</span></a></li>

If this doesn’t work please let me know. Also can you provide a screenshot?

Still it shows this problem
''You don't have permission to access /xxxx/index.php on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request''.
