I'm new to blogging. I'm trying to add categories. I'm having trouble. Help p
I have one category, but I want about 4. I have the four in my dashboard, but they aren’t on my blog. Also how do I put things into a category. Thanks for any help.
The blog I need help with is rickyspracticeblog1.wordpress.com.
Categories can only be assigned to Posts, not to Pages. We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the dynamic Categories pages and Archives pages vreated by the software. Note: There must be one published post in each Category in order for there to be anything to display.

A custom menu allows you to display Categories with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and/or Tags pages and/or Custom Links in your custom menu as well. You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose the order in which to display any and/or all the foregoing in your custom menu. You choose which to display and which to hide.

Thanks. I’m confused. I guess the best way to figure it out is to dive in.
