    I would like to create a separate page on my blog where posts from another blog I write at are automatically published. I am not looking for a side widget, but for the page to look much like my blog’s main page where full entries are posted. Is there any way to do this? Here’s my blog address: http://billpetti.com

    The blog I need help with is billpetti.com.

    I’m sorry but in order to prevent blog scrapers from creating duplicated autoposted content in spam blogs wordpress.com has made sure we cannot do what you suggest. All widgets here work only in sidebars. No posts or pages comprised of autoposted content are possible.

    Also note that Google takes a very dim view of duplicated content. Search engines aim to deliver the most relevant and timely search pages results in the SERPs and duplicated content is at the least pollution and “noise” that’s not welcomed by those using search engines, and at the most “duplicate content may be shown with intent to manipulate our rankings and deceive our users,”

    Ok, thanks for the information.

    Would it be possible to set up a separate page within the blog dedicated to different postings? Not duplicates from another blog, but just a different section that acted like the home page so that readers could easily check on different content?

    Thanks.

    With a default WordPress.com blog setup, the front page (“Home”) of your blog will display the latest posts. You can change this so readers see a static page instead, and see your posts on a different page. Please see here. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/

    If you want to create an index page see here as the archive shortcode does this automatically: > http://en.support.wordpress.com/archives-shortcode/ .

    In a blog all posts are found on a single running page for posts. When we publish posts the automatically appear on Archives pages and on Categories pages. The conventional structure is for only static page tabs to appear in the top navigation bar. However, if what you want is the appearance of separate pages displaying posts in categories in that top navigation bar then you can create a custom menu.

    Awesome! I think this is exactly what I was looking for–would love to sort my posts by categories with page tabs for easier navigation.

    Many thanks!

    I’m so sorry I didn’t cotton to what you really wanted (custom menu) right off the top. It’s good to hear I finally nailed it. lol :D You’re welcome and best wishes for happy blogging. :)
