    Posts are not coming up in the categories I have set up.

    After writing my post, I check the box on the category I want associated to my post and click publish. The post pops up on the home page, but not in the categories. How do I fix this?

    The blog I need help with is http://thedesign-diaries.com/

    Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is thedesign-diaries.com.

  2. Let's start with the fact that all of these are static pages and not categories and they will never update:
    About
    Style
    Home
    Events
    Entertain
    DIY
    Organize
    Free Downloads

  3. Among the most common misconceptions is that bloggers fail to understand is
    (1) there is only one page we can post to in any blog and
    (2) the static pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ they create do not automatically update.

    Only the dynamic pages like Categories, Tags and Archives created by the software when we publish a post we that we have assigned Categories and Tags too will update automatically update with new posts.

    By default the front page of the blog is the post that displays all posts in your blog. Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize posts by assigning categories to them. You can create a custom menu and add the dynamic categories pages into the custom menu.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#adding-category-pages

    Note that there are many common errors, misunderstandings and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here. > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/
