Hi Vicky

Yes thats correct, the menu card template is setup just to pull in the content from the posts you’ve selected, via the list of categories at the bottom of the page settings. Its doesn’t allow for standard page content to be added, its formatted differently. It uses the content from the menucard description box at the bottom of the edit post screen – http://screencast.com/t/tzbalyYIYqt

You’ll need to use a page with the default/standard template to add normal page content etc.
