    My blog has pages so when I select a category, the posts also post to the category page (that shows up on the menu). Sadly, I can’t remember how I did this.
    I am currently uploading earthquake safety videos and I want them to appear on their own category page as well. I just can’t seem to create a category page.

    The blog I need help with is spencerkrull.wordpress.com.

    Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page. We organize posts by assigning Categories to them. You can create a custom menu and add the dynamic categories pages created by the software into the custom menu. Note that until there is one published post in any category there is nothing that can be displayed on the dynamic categories pages

    Here’s a link to a custom menu walkthrough > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/11/wordpress-com-custom-menu-walk-through/

    There are many common errors, misunderstanding and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/

    Thank you, timethief. I’ve read through al those posts previously and I still can’t figure it out.
    I’m currently doing it on my site with the Cheviot Hills posts, but I can’t seem to get the emergency preparedness posts to create a Category page. I’m stumped.

    Okay, I realize my mistake. When i first set up my blog I didn’t understand the difference between menus and tabs — and had several menus to choose from. Though the correct menu was active, I was editing the wrong menu.
    I will beat myself appropriately in private.

    Aha! Stop that beating and get back back to work on the blog now, y’hear? ;)
