Update page with post headers/links?

  1. Good afternoon all.
    I have a podcast on my blog. It has its own page on my site: http://thenycactor.net/podcast/
    However, you cannot see the list of podcasts I have done unless you go to the individual pages for them: http://thenycactor.net/2011/11/02/the-nyc-actor-podcast-the-actress-star-and-creator-ann-carr/ or via iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/id441135095

    Each podcast I post has its own page with photo, links and synopsis and I'd love for my main podcast page to link to them automatically so that I don't have to manually update the page every time I publish a new podcast.

    Is this possible with wordpress? Especially a wordpress.com theme?

    Thanks for any help/advice you can give.

    The blog I need help with is thenycactor.net.

  2. You are confusing pages and posts. Have a look at this support document on the differences between pages and posts.

    You cannot put "posts" on "pages." At wordpress.com, you organize posts by categorizing them and then you can either put the categories widget into the sidebar, or you can create a custom menu and put the categories into the custom menu.

  3. We cannot post to static pages. Pages are static and sit outside the blog structure. With WordPress, we use categories to organize posts into subjects and then you can add those categories to your navigation using a custom menu.

    What’s critical is:
    (1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
    (2) a clear comprehension of the fact that there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. But we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the Categories pages and Archives pages. Note: There must be one published post in each Category in order for there to be anything to display.

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and/or custom links in your custom menu as well. You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose the order in which to display any and/or all the foregoing in your custom menu. You choose which to display and which to hide. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus

    Have you created a podcast Category and assigned it to the posts with podcasts? If so then creating a custom menu and adding the podcasts Category to it might work for you.
