Posting on several pages

  1. posting on several pages - My site has several pages and I want to have different post on different pages. How do I do that? I.e. On my home page I want to post daily. On another page - word of the day - I want to add a different post. I have been on The Pioneer Woman's site and she has this option. It says at the bottom of her site powered by WordPress. Thanks for your help

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

  2. It says at the bottom of her site powered by WordPress

    That means it's a WordPress.org install.

    However, you can create a custom menu on your blog. Pages and posts are different. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ Pages are static and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and they do not automatically update. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/

    You cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for 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.

    Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page. We organize posts by assigning categories to them. You can create a custom menu and add the dynamic categories pages created by the software when you publish posts into the custom menu.
