    Hi!

    I wanted to know if it was possible to move a post I have previously published on WordPress to a new page within the same blog in WordPress without it being republished to my readers/followers?

    Please let me know if this is possible and how to do it.

    Thank you!

    Reesespeaks.

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

    Hello.

    Let me get this straight. You want a published post to actually be a “page”?

    You can just try copy pasting that post into a new page. Publishing it won’t notify your readers/followers.

    Then delete the old post.

    There is no RSS Feed for Pages.

    There is no automatic means of changing a Post into a Page. It’s a copy and paste job.

    What about moving numerous posts onto a page? I think some of my post would actually work better for my followers if there was more separation between them Would copying and pasting work, too? AS you can tell, I’m not very tech savvy. :(

    I believe you are approaching this in exactly the opposite manner that I would approach it. Posts and Pages are not the same at all and Pages cannot automatically update. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    Among the most common misconceptions is that bloggers fail to understand is
    (1) there is only one page we can post to in any blog and
    (2) the static pages http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ they create do not automatically update.

    Only the dynamic pages like Categories, Tags and Archives created by the software when we publish a post we that we have assigned Categories and Tags too will update automatically update with new posts.

    By default the front page of the blog is the post that displays all posts in your blog. Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts (not pages) http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/ 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 into the custom menu.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

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