I am in the process of building a site here on WordPress where I wish to put 3 different blogs trees under 1 homepage. I had a lot of help from community members to find my way in how to this. (http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/a-blog-tree-starting-with-1-homepage-possible?replies=6)
But, still more questions.
I write in 3 languages and have created a menu with those languages. Under each of these menus I have placed the names of the 3 subjects I write about, basically 3 blogs per language (http://freehansje.wordpress.com/)
For English this would be
Language: English, Subjects(Categories) Gaming, Computers and databases, Miscellaneous.
When I add a post I basically add 2 categories: the name of the language and the category under the language. For English this would be for instance English>Gaming. However, with every post in the Categories EVERY category ever used is visible. I wonder if I can do this with the WordPress facilities?
Another thing I am not happy with is the listing of recent postings next to the post. I see EVERY post of the current month(I guess) and I would like to restrict this to only posts in the categories to which the current post belongs. This then would list only the English posts next to the current post if this was English, only the German posts next to a German post, the same for the Dutch tree. At the bottom of a post the distinct categories to which the post belongs are listed, so the meta-data is there somewhere.
I notice I can have more blogs under my account. I'm guessing things would be much easier if I would put each language-tree in its own blog. But could I then tie the tree different blogs into one homepage? The whole point is to have one starting point for the different languages my blogs are written in.
The blog I need help with is freehansje.wordpress.com.
