Hierarchies

    When I read the little paragraph about “Hierarchies” when creating pages, I assume that means that I can create a page that will be linked from another page. For example, I can create a “Parent” pictures page, and from there create sub categories of pages by month (i.e.: January pictures, February pictures, and so on).
    While trying this, I created my “Parent” page, and one more page to go underneath that.. However, this sub-page disappears.. When I view my blog, there’s no way to get to this page, only to the “parent” page.. What’s happening and how can I fix it?

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

    I see one static page on your blog and it’s titled “Other blogs I follow”. Sub-pages (child pages) are not added to the horizontal page menu as the web designer did not include that in the theme. But if you place a Pages widget in your sidebar > Appearance > Widgets then your sub-pages (child pages) will be accessible, and you can even choose to hide some if you wish. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/pages-widget/

    Also I could be wrong but in your other thread I wasn’t sure if you understood the differences between pages and posts. This support entry explains them well http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    Thanks for your help!

    I added the “Page” widget, and can see the hierarchy on the sidebar, but is there anyway to add a list of “child pages” to the “parent” page?

    I am wanting to add a “Pictures” page, with many sub-pages (categorized by month). If I can only list the sub-pages on the side-bar, then when people click on the main “pictures” page, there won’t be anything there unless I add a description. Ideally, I’d like to be able to click on the “Pictures” page, and have that bring me to a page with a list of links to the other sub-pages… If this makes sense… Is there any way to do this?

    If you want links to child pages on the parent page itself, then in most themes you have to add them manually. There are a few themes coded so links to child pages show up automatically on parent pages but your theme isn’t one of them.

    Thank you, I actually just came back to say that I figured it out! I did add them manually. Thanks again for your help!
