Trying to get columnist theme to look like demo

  1. Hello all,

    I chose to use the columnist theme based on this example columnist

    I can't figure out how to get my page to flow like that.

    Specifically how on the front page, there are the categories (design, news,video) then one story available underneath the catagory, and a tab for view all.

    how would i setup mine to look like that?

    Here is my blog for reference, THANKS for any help you can give me

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

  2. The theme has been adapted to run on our WordPress.com multiuser software so don't rely on what you see at the link you posted. This is the theme description that applies to your blog here > http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/the-columnist/ and this is the live demo site > http://thecolumnistdemo.wordpress.com/

    What you are pointing to is links to is a Custom Menu.

    I believe that you will benefit from reading this post as there are many misconceptions about custom menus http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/
    Among the most common misconceptions is that bloggers fail to understand that the static pages they create do not automatically update. Only the dynamic pages like Categories, Tags and Archives created by the software when we publish a post we that we have assigned Categories and Tags too will update automatically update with posts.

    Custom Menu
    The Columnist provides a single navigation menu which displays at the top of your site. This menu will support any level of dropdowns and can be configured by visiting the Appearance → Menus admin screen. It’s important to note that this menu will only appear in templates that display multiple posts. This includes your homepage, search, and all archive views. The menu will be omitted in single posts and pages allowing your readers to focus on your content rather then where to go next. http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/the-columnist/
