Product links in posts

  1. Can I use links for products that I use?

  2. I want to use links to the software I use to edit my photos. Can I put links to those product pages in my post?

  3. You posted two questions above that I'm not going to answer first. I went to your blog and read this: "Now I just have to figure out how to post to those pages instead of having my posts go to the main page. "

    In fact there is only one page that we can post to in any blog and we cannot prevent any posts we publish from appearing on that one page. By default it's the front page of the blog that all posts appear on.

    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 and when we publish the software automatically displays the posts on dynamic Categories pages.

    Here is a list of the static pages on your blog
    About
    Photography and Art
    Sparky

    Please read this http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ and understand those static pages will never update with posts because they are not dynamic Categories pages.

    Delete those static pages. You need to create a Categories and assign them to your posts. When you do that each time you publish a post with that Category assigned to it the post will display on the dynamic Category page.

    Here’s a link to a custom menu walk-through > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/11/wordpress-com-custom-menu-walk-through/

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

    Are you reviewing products? If not then a brand name is sufficient so why link at all?

  5. Thanks for the help. I read about the dynamic pages and categories this afternoon and I'm still a little confused, but I'll get it eventually. Since I'm not reviewing I'll just put the name like originally had it, then if someone wants to find out more they can use a search engine.

    P.S. Sorry about the double question, I just didn't think I explained it well enough the first time.

  6. Not to worry about the double question. If you need more help then do post again.
