How can I have 3 blogs in one?

    Hello there,

    I'm trying to built our family tour blog. We'll travel the world for the coming 6 months and I'd like my children, Emile and Violette, to have their own blog page in our "family blog" ... in addition to the parents page, i.e. my wife Caroline and I, Benjamin.

    How can I manage to do that?
    New posts directly go on the front page and cannot be driven to Emile's, Violette's or the parents' page.

    Can you help?

    Cheers

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

  2. Yes. Create a Category under each child's name that they assign to their post prior to publication. Then create a custom menu and add the dynamic categories pages into it.

    Please read this first Post vs. Page http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    (1) There is only one page we can post to in any blog.
    (2) The static pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ we bloggers create do not automatically update.

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

    By default the front page of the blog is the Page that displays all posts in your blog. You can create a static front page and have your published posts display on another page http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/ but doing that does not change what follows.

    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.

    This guide will walk you through how to create category pages for your blog, to display groupings of similar posts on pages other than your front page. http://en.support.wordpress.com/category-pages/

    Add dynamic categories and sub-categories pages to it

    Create order and sub-menus (dropdowns)

    There are many common errors, misunderstandings and misconceptions when creating custom menus and there are some tweaks you can use to improve your custom menu as well.
