Can I create a page for a specific tag?

  1. Can I create a page that would be a landing page, of sorts, for posts that are tagged with one specific tag? And would that page have the functionality to be automatically updated each time I updated my blog with a new post with that specific tag.

    So, for example, each time I publish a post with the tag "Twin Antics" that post is published to my main blog page, of course, but also uploaded to my "Twin Antics" page as well. Additionally, could I move all past posts that are currently tagged as such onto that page as well?

    I've seen this done on a Blogger site. Does WordPress have this functionality?

    Thank you,
    Devon

  2. 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.

    Staff have provided help for those who want to structure their blog like a website. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/

    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 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, Tags 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 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 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

    Also note that if you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page for your site ie. a landing page, and also create a “blog” page for your posts to display on, but that’s optional.

  3. Fantastic answer! Thank you for your time ... and the education. Much appreciated.

  4. You're welcome. When you use Categories and a custom menu you will have no issues. You will get exactly what you want. :)
