how connect articles to menu

  1. how do I connect my articles to my page called " My Articles " in the menu.

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

  2. There is only one page in any blog that we can post to and by default it's the front page of the blog. Though we cannot post to more than one page we can create the appearance we have done so. What's critical is knowing that the static pages we blogger create will never automatically update. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ Only dynamic Categories pages will automatically update when we publish posts.

    Below is an example of a static page URL. Study it closely and note that no static Page can automatically update.

    Below is an example of a category URL.
    Study it closely please and note that only dynamic category pages can automatically update.

    Setting up a menu is easy as pie, provided you know the differences between Posts and Pages, and the differences between static Pages, (which will never automatically update) and dynamic Categories pages which will automatically update when you publish Posts with Categories assigned to them.

    The relevant support docs for creating custom menus, adding categories and sub-categories pages into it and ordering them to create drop downs are at:

    Read this carefully http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/06/30/posts-on-pages/

    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.

  3. I am new a this and do not understand . I know what a static page is.
    My question is how do I relate my articles to the menu.
    thank you.

  4. I am a Volunteer and I cannot see into your private blog. I do not know if your "articles" is a reference to a single static page with text of your own creation on it. Or if you are actually referring to a dynamic Articles categories page that will automatically update when you publish posts with the "articles" category assigned to them.
