Parent page and sub pages both visible?

    I have 4 pages on my site. I have created one as a parent and have a page under that. How do others get to view that "sub" page? I thought it would show up somehow.

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

  2. If you want links to child pages on the parent page itself, then in most themes you have to add them manually .As you are using a theme that does not have a horizontal menu you can use the Pages widget in your sidebar. Be sure you have ave correctly assigned sub-pages to Parent pages in the Pages attributes module.

    Frankly I would switch themes and use one that has a horizontal menu. Then I would set up a custom menu. It's far more elegant and accessible.

    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 custom links in your custom menu as well. You choose the order in which to display the foregoing in your custom menu. You choose which to display and which to hide.

    Thanks for the information. I understand a little better now. I am going to experiment with another theme. I will probably be back asking questions after I do a little more work.
