How do I organize my posts onto various pages?

  1. I need help organizing my blog. I would like to be able to file my posts under different pages. Right now my posts are all listed in chronological order on the front page, but I would like them to be stored under various subject headings/pages. Is that possible?

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

  2. You can create a custom menu and add the dynamic Categories pages to it and order then the way you want to.

    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.

    Create a custom menu

    Add dynamic categories and sub-categories pages to it

    Create order and sub-menus (dropdowns)

    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/
