    Hi, does anyone know of any way to add a post or a series of posts to a page? I was thinking something like a single post on top, a divider, and then a list of posts based on specific tags. I've tried googling, but I can't find anything on how to do this (if possible).

  2. hello,
    Oops! Where is the active link starting with http:// to the blog in question? Please post it now.

  3. I think I have located you blog. Is this it? http://ntngear.wordpress.com/

    Pages are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts in a blog and all posts will show on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page. However, you can create a static front page and another page for your posts. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and/or Tags pages and/or Custom Links in your custom menu as well. You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose the order in which to display any and/or all the foregoing in your custom menu. You choose which to display and which to hide. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus

    When creating a cusom menu what’s critical is:
    (1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
    (2) a clear comprehension of the fact that there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. But we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page. We organize posts by assigning categories to them. You can either put the categories widget into the sidebar, or you can create a custom menu and add the categories into the custom menu.

    Sorry about that, I assumed since there was a dropdown menu to select which blog I needed help with I didn't need to post a link to it. Yep, ntngear.wordpress.com is the correct one.

    I'm already quite familiar with how to create custom menus. The main difference however is that instead of using Categories, I use Tags. So the menu button for Skyrim/Male/Face Mods links to ntngear.wordpress.com/tag/Skyrim+Male+Face

    On the subject of categories, is there any way to reorganise the posts in a particular category? By which I mean, instead of sorting them by post date, to instead sort them in a custom manner of my own choosing?

    You can arrange the categories pages "tabs" and all the "tabs" in the custom menu any way you want. Did you read this?

  6. In the majority of themes, posts on category or other archive pages show up just as they do on the main posts page. But in some themes only the beginnings of posts are shown, and in a few themes you only get titles or thumbnails. We cannot edit tjemes or templates and we cannot edit categories or tags pages.

  7. I have a similar question to the one posed by ntngear and since timethief is explaining things in a way that makes sense, allow me to ask a question. Let me explain it in the simplest way possible.

    Please click on the link to my page> http://thereportable.wordpress.com/

    If you click on "Articles" nothing comes up. If you click on the category I made under that page, the post comes up.

    If you try to do the same with the demo of the theme, it works.> http://oxygendemo.wordpress.com/blog/

    If you click on blog, summaries of different posts come up. Then you can click on the one you want. No need for subtabs. Thats what I want.

    Please help, I ve searched everywhere.

  8. Do you have any posts that you've categorized as Articles?

    That link, that you've labeled Articles, goes to http://thereportable.wordpress.com/featured/ in other words, it does not go to posts categorized as Articles, it only goes to Featured posts. Have you got any Featured posts?

  9. When I originally made the page I named it featured but then renamed it Articles.

    I havent categorized any posts as Articles. Right now,'Articles' is a page not a category. Should I make a category named 'Articles'?

  10. Yes. Please re-read everything above that TT has written before proceeding. Then you'll know exactly what to do and how everything works.

  11. Words of freaking wisdom. All I needed was a re-read. Thank you!
