New page – daily picture, scroll like blog
There is only one page that we can post to in any blog and we cannot prevent any posts we publish from appearing on that one page. By default it’s the front page of the blog that all posts appear on.
Though there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts 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 and when we publish the software automatically displays the posts on dynamic Categories pages.
http://shade-tree-mechanic.net/tips-from-the-mechanic-himself/ is a static page that you created. http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/ It will never update with posts because it is not a dynamic Categories page.
Delete that static page. You need to create a “Daily Picture” Category and assign it to your posts. Then you need to create a cusom menu and include the Category page in it. When you do that each time you publish a post with that Category assigned to it the post will display on the dynamic Category page.
Here’s a link to a custom menu walkthrough > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/08/11/wordpress-com-custom-menu-walk-through/
There are many common errors, misunderstanding and misconceptions when creating custom menus and you can read about them here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/custom-menus/
Rats. Please ignore this link I included above http://shade-tree-mechanic.net/tips-from-the-mechanic-himself/ when I copied and pasted and forgot to remove it. :( The rest of what I posted is correct and relevant.
