new here & having trouble with Posts

  1. I created a blog with several pages. I wanted to add a new post to a page so went to that page and clicked on "edit"
    then in the sidebar chose "new post" and entered my post.
    but when I went back to my blog it was posted to my home page, not to the page I was trying to edit.
    How do I make a post go on the page I want it to be on?
    Thanks for your help! :)

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

  2. OH btw, I "corrected" the problem by removing the post from the home page and just typing it above the older post on my "What IF" page.
    But I'm hoping there's a way to create a post and have it show on the page I want it to.
    Thanks again!

  3. I'm experiencing somewhat the same problem though my second "Posts" page does not show up and everything is posting to my "Home" page.
    My widgets no longer work on my home page.

    This set-up would be much easier as a wizard with step-by-step screens.

    This is my 2nd day of frustration.

  4. Frustrated as well. This is much more difficult then it needs to be.

  5. Pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/ in a blog and all posts will display on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page. The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top. We organize our blogs by assigning Categories and/or Tags to Posts (not pages).

    The most common misunderstanding is bloggers creating static Pages that do not automatically update and thinking that they will when they cannot and will not. Only dynamic pages (Archives, Categories, Tags) created by the software will automatically update.

    1. Delete any static pages you created to function as "subjects" or "topics" pages.

    2. Assign Categories and/or Tags to your Posts (not pages).
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/tags/

    3. Create a custom menu
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

    4. Add the dynamic Categories and/or Tags pages into your custom menu as menu items.
