    All i want to do is have a blog post go to the pages in the subject they are writen.
    eg: If i write a post about makeup, and i have created a page named makeup I would like to have it posted to that page.
    I am currently working with Buneo theme maybe that is the wrong theme for my request? I like the layout and would like to keep it but i would change it if it means i can solve this problem.

  3. You are attempting to do something common, doing it exactly the way everyone does it, and it doesn't work. But the good news is, there's a simpler way to do it that works automatically and you don't need those extra pages. Here: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/06/30/posts-on-pages/

  4. Oh my Gosh thank you soo much. I feel like the wait of the world has been lifted off my shoulders, you have no idea how frustrated I was with this issue. You are the best.....literally!!!!!

    Now only if I understood what plug ins are, what they are used for, and how to install them. I've seen ppl chatting about plug ins on blogs. What do they do?
    And what is the CSS area in the theme menu? It says you can put your own coding in the area. What customs can I install in this area?

  5. Hi there,
    There is no FTP access to our free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we bloggers cannot install plugins.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    FTP access and plugins are only for VIP bloggers http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ or for those with WordPress.ORG installs.

    Please read this comparison so you are clear on the differences http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    P.S. There are many common errors, misunderstandings and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/

  6. And what is the CSS area in the theme menu? It says you can put your own coding in the area. What customs can I install in this area?

    You cannot build or use your own custom theme built from scratch at WordPress.com or upload third party themes.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/

    The only themes we can use are those found here > Appearance > Themes http://wordpress.com/themes/
    This is a multiuser blogging platform. All blogs wearing the same theme are using the same underlying template and we cannot access the underlying files and edit templates or themes.

    If you have CSS editing experience the upgrade will allow you to stylize the appearance of themes you find here > Appearance > Themes, but will not allow you to change the functionality, by editing the underlying template. It does not allow you to remove footer links to the theme designer or to WordPress.com. Also note that CSS is theme specific, so you cannot use the CSS stylesheets from other themes with the themes at WordPress.COM.

  7. Thanks so much for all your help. I think I'm gonna stick to the free site for now until I get the hang of things.

    Lastly if I may ask one more question. There are sidebar widgets to connect to your Facebook and twitter but no Instagram. Is there a way to set a sidebar for a URL so that when clicked will direct to my instagram?
