Okay, I've read support articles and questions until my eyes glazed over and still haven't quite figured this out, so I'd appreciate some guidance from some more seasoned bloggers.
I consider myself fairly computer literate, but this one has me temporarily stumped. I now have thirteen (yes, 13!) pages which appear both across the top of the page (main navigation) and down the right sidebar. I need to "nest" some pages within the main navigation, such as on the "Issues" or the "Op/Ed" page - where I can extrapolate and expand my thoughts on a given subject without losing the reader in a maze of confusing navigation. Currently, the pages are numbered 1-13 to position them in the main navigation, but I cannot keep adding pages forever..... I need a better hierarchy system.
I have tried adding category titles that correspond with the page titles, and added the "category" widget to the sidebar, with the notion that newer posts assigned to a category would appear under their assigned category when authored, but my sidebar only showed about five or six categories - not all. I was further flummoxed when I realized that any new post I authored appeared on the home page instead of where I intended.
Can anyone explain to me how to manipulate the appearance and page hierarchy to perform as I've described ? The answer is probably fairly simple, but it has - so far - escaped me. Thanks in advance !
