    Hi.

    I have set up a custom menu and when i click on the drop down post e.g. Zara under the portraits heading , it says the page cannot be found. All my posts are set up under categories not pages. How can i fix this?
    Thanks for your help!

  2. If you have created a custom menu and then later add more dynamic Categories pages and dynamic sub-Categories pages then you will have to go here > Appearance > Menu and add them.

    Creating Sub-Menus > http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#changing-the-order-of-menu-items-and-creating-sub-menus

  3. Pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ that we bloggers create are static ie. they do not automatically update with new content. Only dynamic pages which are automatically created by the software when we publish a post ie. categories, tags, archives pages will update.

    There is only one dynamic page for posts that automatically updates in a blog and all posts will display on that page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page. By default the front page of the blog will display your posts (not pages) in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. If you do not want all the posts to show on the front page, then you can create a static front page http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/

    Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts 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 created by the software into the custom menu. Note that until there is one published post in any category there is nothing that can be displayed on the dynamic categories pages

    Here’s a link to a custom menu walkthrough > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/11/wordpress-com-custom-menu-walk-through/

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

  4. Give us an example of a post which is categorized under this category: http://laurapaynesphotography.wordpress.com/category/portraits/south-east-asia-portraits/

    Give us a direct link to that post.
