adding topics to navigation menu

  1. I want to add a new tab of topics to my navigation menu -- that is, under my blog title and header, where I have tabs for "Home "cheers and jeers," "old Work stories," etc., I want to add another one of these tabs. What are they called and how to do it? Can't seem to figure out what they are called, so finding the solution is difficult. thanks.

    The blog I need help with is clockwatcher23.wordpress.com.

  2. You cannot add "topics" but you can add categories. You cannot post to pages. Pages are static and sit outside the blog structure. With wordpress, you use categories to organize posts into subjects and then you can add those categories to your navigation using a custom menu. What's critical is comprehending the differences between post and pages.

    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 our posts by assigning Categories to them. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the Categories pages and Archives pages. Note: There must be one published post in each Category in order for there to be anything to display.

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages and custom links in your custom menu as well.

    These are the how-to instructions:
