how to put a page inside a category?

  1. Hi,
    I'm new to this blog thing.
    I've created categories that appear in the menu (they actually seem to BE the menu). Now I'd like to write pages , and then put those pages in one of the categories, so that peope can click on the category they're interested in and find the articles inside it. How do I do that? When I create a page, it just seems to be lost and I can't find any button or anything to say "move to folder " or something like that.

    Thank you very much if someone can help me.

  2. Pages and posts are different. Pages sit outside the blog structure and we cannot assign Categories to them nor can we post to them. We can only Assign Categories to posts. Also until we actually publish a post with a Category assigned to it there is no data that can be displayed on the Category pages.

    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
    (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

  3. hello, The hack poet here
    I have a question to which I would love someone to have the answer! In the past when I posted a poem, catogorized and tagged it, once publised I was able to hit uopn any the the tags or categories and be brought directly to that page to view my posting and other writers that have also posted. This feature is not functioning at present and I have no idea as to why, please help!

  4. Previously all categories and tags we assigned to our posts redirected to the WordPress.com global tags pages. Only the links displayed by Tags and Categories widgets directed to content in our own blogs. Well that feature you refer to violated accessibility guidelines. As all links ought to direct to the target indicated by what the link says. It should not be dependent on where the link is located. In August Staff have now fixed the Categories and Tags links do they direct correctly to the content found only in our own blogs. The posts are still appearing on the global tag pages unless there are reasons for them to be "missing".
