How to direct a page to a category?
I want to add pages to my blog, but I want the to be directed to a category, when clicked on.
The blog I need help with is annisaamag.wordpress.com.
Pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ we bloggers create are static. They do not automatically update and are for content that rarely changes. They sit outside of the blog structure and you cannot post to multiple pages in any blog. There is only one main page for posts http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/ in a blog and all posts will display on the main blog page. There is no way to exclude posts from the main posts (blog) page. The front page of the blog by default will display your posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ in reverse chronological order, with the most recently published post on top.
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 continually updating categories pages created by the software into the custom menu.
Here’s a link to a custom menu walk-through > 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/
Note that Posts can have Categories and /or Tags assigned to them but Pages cannot. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
Here’s a helpful link to an article that explains how your theme is designed http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/06/02/the-morning-after/
