nesting pages - does Clean Home theme support this?

  1. Just keep going around in circles- I think this theme allows me to create it but I'm getting mixed up with categories that nest and pages.

    The blog I need help with is inmotioncyclingstudio.com.

  2. I'm not clear on what you mean by "nesting" as that term is usually used to refer to threaded comments.

    In any theme here you can create Pages and sub-pages and establish a hierarchical structure. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/#create-sub-pages

    You cannot post to pages. Pages are static and sit outside the blog structure. With wordpress, you use categories to organize posts into subjects and then you can add those categories to your navigation using a custom menu.

    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 > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
    (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. Will you also please "fix" the link from your username to your blog? Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    Now every time you sign into the forum we can all click on your username and your blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on a blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.

  4. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages

    I can't figure out WHY I see the pages I created in InMotionCyclingStudio.com on the horizontal tab instead of the sub-pages I want.For example, I established pages, then made "Frank" and "Nancy" pages have "Instructor" as their parent.
    I can see them listed correctly on the All Pages screen, but not on my site.

  5. Please edit those sub-pages and establish consistency between the assignment there and your custom menu arrangements. Vheck the sub-pages themselves to see if you have established a Parent page and child page “hierarchical structure” in the page attributes module. Remove if required. Also remove any “order” numbers you have assigned that may conflict with the order you are creating in your custom menu by dropping and dragging. Or simply change them so they are the same order as you establish in the menu.

  6. @thebachetys, not all themes support submenus by default. My suggestion is to create a custom menu so that you are in complete control of where the pages appear in the top navigation. See the custom menu link that is at the end of timethief's first reply and when you have the menu ready and saved, make sure and select that menu from the theme locations pulldown at upper left on the custom menu page and click the save button.
