How do i move/copy posts to page tabs?

  1. I have just created 2 other "pages" within my blog, for specific content. How do i create posts (or copy/move posts) to those pages? Example: copy a recipe post to the recipe tab, etc?

  2. You don't do it with static pages, you do it with post categories and a custom menu. See here:

  3. I read those links and I still didn't understand. That's why I asked. Thanks again for showing the WordPress community how not to be helpful and kind. You have a lot to be proud of.

  4. Pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ we bloggers create are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/ in a blog and all posts will display on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page.

    The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ 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 “Welcome” for your site and a “Blog” page for posts.
    Choice 1 static front page
    Choice 2 running page for all posts on front page
    Which do you choose? It’s one or the other.
    If you choose a static front page then you have to create two pages as I said above. After you do that you go to > Settings > Reading http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/ and make the designation change and click “save changes”.

    Although 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. We can create a custom menu and add the dynamic Categories pages created by the software into the custom menu.
