Categories

  1. I created six categories. Only 4 are showing up on the home page.

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

  2. These are not categories. They are static pages that will not update.

    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.

    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/

  3. When you create a custom menu you can include all the items including published Pages that you want to appear in it.

    Troubleshooting – My Pages aren’t appearing
    They must be public pages – not private and not draft.
    Public – The page will be visible to everyone.
    Protected – The page is protected with a password you set. Only people who have the password can view a protected page.
    Private – Pages are only visible to blog Editors and Administrators. Private pages are not visible in Reader, feeds, or in any search. A page can be private without being password protected.
