How to create submenu's of a category, please?

  1. Hey

    Apart from writing movie reviews, I would like to start with writing TV-series reviews. However, TV-series have usually more than one season, so here's what I want to do:

    Let's say I want to write a review of "Prison break seasons 1 -4". What I would like is to have the name PRISON BREAK in my side bar. When you click on that, you get 4 submenu's (season 1, season 2, season 3 and season 4). And when you click on a specific SEASON, thén you can actually read the review of that particular season.
    But I would like to have a subdivision of the amount of seasons before you can read a review of that season.

    I've looked and looked, but came up empty so far. Can anyone pléase-please-please help me?

    Many thanks!!!

    Bye for now

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

  2. Hello there,
    We can set up hierarchical Categories and Sub-categories and display them in our sidebar using a Categories widget. The widget will not display null data. There must be at least one published post that has been assigned to a Category or Sub-category for it to be displayed by the widget.

    Please read what's possible in support documentation.

    Alternatively we can display Categories and Sub-categories in the horizontal menu where Pages are usually displayed by creating a custom menu. These are the how-to instructions:

    1. You create a custom menu. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

    2. You add the Categories you want to display and arrange them in the order you want.

    3. Then you add and drop and drag the sub-categories below the appropriate Categories, and when you have everything arranged in the menu that you want you save the menu.

    4. Go to the “theme location” module at upper left on the menu page. Select your custom menu name from the pull-down labeled “primary location.” Click the save button in that module.

    Note: If you wish you can also include pages and sub-pages of your own choice and custom links in your custom menu as well.

  3. phew, lots of stuff to think about, hahaha! :D
    But great, great help. Many thanks! :D

  5. I'm sorry to bug you again, but I'm still running in circles. :(

    When I create 3 categories (for example: TV-series, Prison Break, Season One) and I cléarly state that TV-series is the main category, Prison Break the first sub-category and Season one the second sub-category - then I still see all 3 categories underneath each other, when I add my review of Prison Break - Season one.

    Alternatively, when I choose the Category-widget - then I get ALL my categories (Movies A, movies B, movies C, ....) underneath this because I alréady added 1 category-widget.

    So, sorry to have to repeat myself, but ... what is the fastest way to add a new category TV-series, thén the name of the series (e.g.: Prison break) and thén the season (e.g.: Season One) and when you click on thát finally the review, please?

    Currently I have one category-widget which says MOVIES & SERIES. Underneath I have many categories named MOVIES A, MOVIES B, MOVIES C, ...
    I'm going to add T.V.-SERIES, but instead of presenting all of the reviews of the TV-series, I would like (different from the setup of the MOVIES-categories) to see the name of the specific television series (e.g. prison break) when you click on the T.V.SERIES-category .... and thén one more time when you click on the specific name of the television series (e.g. prison break) finally the season (e.g.: season one).

    But all of this has to come underneath my MOVIES & SERIES category-widget.

    Sorry again to bother you, but why do they make this soo hard? :((
    Why can't I just drag and copy and paste? :(

    Many, many thanks!

    Bye for now
