How to get a post onto a certain page

  1. HI I am starting up my own blog and is focused around sports. My pages are NFL NBA MLB NHL and Fantasy, I want to be able to get my posts about Baseball in the MLB page, and My fantasy posts onto the Fantasy page. Everytime I go to settings Reading and switch the place where to put my posts, it just puts everything onto one page, So my question is how to get my posts, onto separate pages.

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

  2. If you wish to create a static front page ie. a landing page for your blog then you must create two pages. One is for the static front page and the other is for your blog posts to appear on. Then you can designate them here > Settings > Reading

    You cannot post to pages. Pages are static and sit outside the blog structure. With wordpress, you use categories to organize posts into subjects and then you can add those categories to your navigation using a custom menu.

    Staff have provided help for those who want to structure their blog like a website. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/

    What’s critical is:
    (1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
    (2) a clear comprehension of the fact that there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page, but we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the Categories pages and Archives pages. Note: There must be one published post in each Category in order for there to be anything to display.

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and/or custom links in your custom menu as well. You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose the order in which to display any and/or all the foregoing in your custom menu. You choose which to display and which to hide. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus
