Subpages for *posts* ?

  1. I'm not sure whether this topic belongs here or in Support, so apologies if I've chosen the wrong one.

    I'm not very optimistic about this question, but I'll ask it anyway: is there any way for a post—not a page—to be given subpages? On one of my blogs I would like to include links to additional material for individual posts, and the most logical place for it is in a subfolder of the one with the post in.

    I suspect the answer will be "No, WordPress can't do that", but if there is a way I'd be pleased to know of it. :)

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

    WordPress does not support sub-posts. If you are wanting an easy way to track all posts about a topic you could create a separate tag or category for the posts.

  3. Posts cannot have sub-pages or sub-posts. But I was trying to think about exactly what you are trying to do... what about using the more tag to split the post so they have to click a link to read more?

    You can also split a post into pages:

  4. Oh, Andrew answered too! He's right, categories might be a good solution too. :)

  5. Splitting might be workable but isn't ideal--I want to use the "subposts" a bit like footnotes or appendices, but kept separate from the actual post. Maybe splitting the page so it has an appendix section would partially do it, though.
