Making categories visible on only one blog page

  1. I have a WordPress blog with multiple pages. I imported my Blogger blog to my WP site. Currently, all my posts that I imported are under "uncategorized", on my "Blog" page. Is there any way to hide the category listings on all the other pages of my blog. (I would like for the categories to only show up on my "Blog" page.) Thank you for any help. My blog is http://tamaramorning.com

    The blog I need help with is tamaramorning.com.

  2. You can't do that. Sidebar is visible on all blog pages.

    There is no way to achieve what you ask.

    In the INove theme you will find these options:
    iNove Theme Options
    Menubar ___ Show pages as menu. ___Show categories as menu.
    Sidebar ___Hide sidebar from all pages.

    You will also find that we are able to mix pages, categories, and random links in your horizontal navigation bar by using the new Custom menus feature found now in the Twenty Ten, Structure, Vostok, Bueno, Enterprise, Notepad and Vigilance themes. See here http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2010/05/29/new-custom-menus-feature-and-a-few-others/ and here http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#multiple-menus

    If you choose not to switch from the Motion theme this post may interest you. http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/02/11/custom-header-image-in-motion/

  4. @tamaramorning: Yes you can do it, since you've used the no-sidebar option for your static pages. Add the Categories widget to your sidebar, and remove the Categories header menu (Appearance > Theme Options > Hide category links in top navigation).

    @tt: plus Greyzed.

  5. Thank you so much for your help! It worked perfectly. I really appreciate it.

  6. You're welcome!

    @themishnish: What you wrote applies to most but not all themes; see here:
