Putting Posts Under Pages?

  1. I use Ideation and Intent. I want to put posts into categories under pages to separate them out. I.e Food, Fashion etc. I have seen on others I&I blogs that this is possible I just cannot work out how to do it. I have followed the WordPress custom menu options and am not having any success.
    Would appreciate help.

    The blog I need help with is foodsexfashion.com.

  2. 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.
    http://shade-tree-mechanic.net/tips-from-the-mechanic-himself/ is a static page that you created. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ It will never update with posts because it is not a dynamic Categories page.

    Delete that static page. You need to create a "Daily Picture" Category and assign it to your posts. Then you need to create a cusom menu and include the Category page in it. 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 walkthrough > 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/

  3. I included this link above in error. http://shade-tree-mechanic.net/tips-from-the-mechanic-himself/ i You did not create that page. I copied and pasted and forgot to remove it. However, what I posted is correct. These static pages that you created: About, Fashion, Food and
    Sex will not automatically update. You need to create Categories for Fashion, Food and Sex and assign them to your posts. You need to include the dynamic Categories pages in a custom menu and then when you publish those dynamic pages will be automatically updated by the software.

  4. Great, thanks! I used the walkthrough above. Now my about page isn't on the header. How can I put it back? Or can I?

  5. ignore. I worked that out too! Love a good learning curve!

  6. Hi Timethief,
    I was wondering if you could help with another problem?

    I was about to finish and post a draft today but the "Add Media" format has changed. There no longer seems to be an option for "featured images" or for editing/scaling images etc. I started this post with the original format for uploading and editing pics. I posted two days ago and everything was as it has been for my three WordPress months. Did something change?
