My Posts are showing up in all the Categories I Have

    Just started my blog and am learning how WordPress works. How do I keep a Post to just the Category I’ve assigned it to? My Posts keep showing up in all the Categories I have.
    Thanks for the help.


    The blog I need help with is



    Your active categories are these three:
    – All Things Vintage
    – Home Sweet Home
    – Recipes

    Your published posts are these two:
    – Vintage Compacts
    – Rosemary and Garlic Pork Tenderlion [And you need to correct the typo!]

    Your posts don’t show under all the categories you have: the first post shows under the first two categories and the second post shows under the third category.

    What shows up multiple times is your categories, because you’ve added the Categories widget multiple times, with different titles. The Categories widget displays all the categories that have been assigned to at least one published post, so you only add the widget once. And its title isn’t some sort of super-category, it’s just a title: it should be Categories, Topics, Subject Index – that sort of thing.



    Can you give an example (link) of your post that’s turning up in all categories?
