I've got a static front page, and I want three blog pages
For instance, I want my ‘About Me’ page to be my home screen (which it is at the minute).
I want a my personal blog posts to go under ‘Blog’, my technology posts to go ‘GadgetCore’ and my charity posts under ‘Humanitarian Forum’ for each type of post
Is this possible?
The blog I need help with is thejayunsworthexperience.wordpress.com.
Staff have provided help for those who want to structure their blog like a website. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/
What’s critical is:
(1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
(2) a clear comprehension of the fact that there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. But we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.
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 Categories pages and Archives pages. 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 in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages and custom links in your custom menu as well.
So no, then :(
I’m a little controlling in this aspect, I guess. I want each page to be it’s own blog
Sorry but I posted what is possible and that’s all that is possible. Tthere is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. You cannot post to multiple pages. Pages are static and sit outside the blog structure. With wordpress, you use categories to organize posts into subjects and then you can add those categories to your navigation using a custom menu as I have described above.
Oh I’m sorry if I was rude!
Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to live, thanks :)
No problem and best wishes with your blog. If you feel you are too limited by having a free WordPresscom blog you can hire a web host and download a free software install from WordPress.org for self hosting. See here so you are clear in the differences between the two > WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
Ahh, I’ve just read the custom menu and it’s exactly what I wanted, thank you very much
I thought it was. :) Best wishes for happy blogging.
