Blog Posts on Multiple Pages??

  1. Hello!

    How do I get a blog post that I wrote on both the home page and the page it's meant to be on?

    For example: I wrote a post reviewing a product. I want it on my home page as the most recent post but I also want it on my Product Review page under Fun Stuff.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    The blog I need help with is peppyinprimary.com.

  2. Are you referring to https://peppyinprimary.com/2017/07/31/welcome-to-my-blog/ ?

    You can make this post "sticky" so that it is always on top. More info can be found here:

    Dynamic category pages will automatically display all published posts that you have assigned to that specific category.

    By default the front page of a blog displays all published posts in reverse chronological order with the most recently published post on top. When we publish a post on WordPress software the software automatically creates the same entry in the Archives, and on the dynamic (automatically updating) Categories and Tags pages in accord with the Categories and Tags we assign to that post.

    Organizing posts
    Dynamic category pages https://en.support.wordpress.com/category-pages/ created by the software when we assign categories to posts are also not the same as static pages https://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ we create.

    You can create a custom menu and include multiple dynamic category pages that automatically display the published posts assigned to the the specific categories in reverse chronological order.

    Assign categories to posts.
    Create a custom menu.
    Add the dynamic category pages to into the custom menu.

    You begin by assigning categories https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/ to your posts.

    So when we create custom menu and add the dynamic (automatically updating) category pages to that custom menu we create the appearance (not the reality) of posting to more than one page.

    You need to be aware that:

    1. There are differences between posts and pages described here
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    2. There are differences between static pages we bloggers create https://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ that will not automatically update, and dynamic category pages created by the software when you publish a post which will automatically update https://en.support.wordpress.com/category-pages/.

    3. We organize posts by category assignment prior to publication. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/ and when we publish posts the dynamic category pages they automatically display on are determined by the categories we assign to them.

    So the process you need to use is:

    a. Assign Categories to your Posts. https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories

    b. Create a custom menu https://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/#1-create-a-custom-menu

    c. Add only the dynamic category page links into the custom menu that you want to appear in that menu https://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/view-all/#adding-category-pages and arrange them as you wish them to appear https://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/view-all/#changing-the-order-creating-sub-menus

    d. Create pages and sub-pages for static content, not for posts https://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/

    e. Add any custom links and other items like static pages and sub-pages into your custom menu
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/view-all/#adding-custom-links https://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/view-all/#adding-pages
    and arrange them as you wish them to appear https://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/view-all/#changing-the-order-creating-sub-menus

    Please see https://en.support.wordpress.com/customizer/

  4. No I was referring to the product review - scotch laminator. I want it both on the home page and on my page called "product reviews".

  5. Thank you, TimeThief! I will try this.
