Issues with setting menu

  1. I am having all kinds of problems and I am only moderately computer illiterate! Main thing I'm working on right now is trying to set the menu with different headers and sub headers and they are not displaying as a drop down like I want them to. The entire menu on the lower left with categories, posts.....disappeared completely when I set a header photo which was also a pain in the ass to do. Im finding your blog program very difficult to navigate and not user friendly. Can anyone talk me through some of this? 612-309-6717

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

  2. Hi there,
    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.

    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/

    Here's a link to my post on this http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2013/07/25/create-a-wordpress-website-step-by-step/

    There are many common errors, misunderstandings and misconceptions when creating custom menus and there are some tweaks you can use to improve your custom menu as well.
