Custom Menus- using more than one Tag in a link to archive?

  1. I am writing things in chapters and trying to put the posts up serially but sometimes I post in between those parts of a chapter. I found out how to make the custom menus show a tag archive but is it possible to have a single link in the menu show a tag archive page for more than one at the same time (for example the display would say "Chapter 1" in the menu but it would link to an archive displaying posts that had both tags of "title of project" and "chapter 1"). It didn't seem immediately obvious to me so I was wondering if it was even possible and how?

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

  2. Did you know that you can create a book-like blog structure? Maybe this will be workable for your blog > http://en.support.wordpress.com/write-a-book/

  3. Does this help?

    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:

    How to create Pages > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/

    1. You create a custom menu. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

    2. You add the Categories you want to display and arrange them in the order you want.

    3. Then you add and drop and drag the sub-categories below the appropriate Categories, and when you have everything arranged in the menu that you want you save the menu.

    4. Go to the “theme location” module at upper left on the menu page. Select your custom menu name from the pull-down labeled “primary location.” Click the save button in that module.

    5. Refresh your browser so that it isn’t possibly pulling a cached page, and view see your new menu with Parent pages and dropdowns to sub-pages.

  4. Those are both good ideas, I may play around with the format using these how-tos until I find something that works for me. Thanks!

  5. You're welcome. :)

    P.S. I believe every blogger needs a test blog ie. a private "mirror blog" for testing use.
