    There are distinct differences between static pages, which sit outside the blog structure and are meant only to be used for content that rarely changes, and can only be updated by editing the same entry over and over, and posts, which are displayed on a dynamic automatically updating page in reverse chronological order with the latest post on top. You cannot post to pages. With WordPress, you use Categories (like Reviews) to organize posts into subjects, and then you can add those Categories to your navigation where using a custom menu.

    Staff have provided help for those who want to structure their blog like a website. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/

    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

    Hi,
    Menus are your best bet. As timethief said, menus let you post an article on a different page. Good luck! I just figured out menus a few days ago but the menu support page helps a lot. :)

    @kathflores23: Sorry, but both the article airodyssey linked to and timethief’s response do answer your question. We’re not to blame if you don’t like reading.

    Anyway, to sum it up: You cannot literally add posts to (static) pages. You probably mean you want a tab in your top menu for a certain group of posts. To do that, you don’t create a page, you assign a category to that group of posts, then go to Appearance>Menus and create a custom menu that will include that category.

    and btw… I tried that.. what if i dont want it to appear in my blog ( non static) page because i used my category and it appear on both pages

    The page you’ve set as your posts page in Settings>Reading is a page you’ve called “Blog”, and so far you’ve been filing all your posts under a “Blog” category as well. Assuming “Reviews” is the group of posts you want to separate, then you’ll file those posts under that category only (not under “Blog”), and you’ll remove the Blog page from your custom menu and add the the Blog category instead.

    Hi,
    I have two blogs, “things-that-bother.me,” and “triflesandtrivia.wordpress.com.”
    In the former, my “About” message does not appear in the navigation bar, while in the latter, “About” does appear. I would appreciate any suggestions about what might be preventing it appearing in the former. I hope this question is judged relevant to the current discussion.

    @sphynx7: This post is about pages; your question seems to be about “about pages“. For the sake of organization, please start a separate topic and we’ll take it from there:
