Hello WP people
Firstly – My blog site is going to be manly made-up of pages.
In the dashboard when I select post’s – the categories link is showing.
But when I select pages; the categories link isn’t there.
I am using the toolbox theme and I have override on so I control full CSS of my blog and there is no categories link on my edit pages.
Secondly – is it important to apply categories so that people can discover my blog, and where would I place them.
To be clear about this Pages and Posts are not the same. Pages cannot have Categories of Tags assigned to them. Posts can have both Categories and Tags assigned to them. Page based websites structures are not attractive to search engines. Post based blog structures are very attractive to search engines provided there is frequent publishing of fresh content on the site.
