New Post Within New Pages/Menus

    Hello, when I try to create a new post it goes under the Home “Page” that is my “site.” I’ve created a few more pages, making them into menu options, but I can’t figure out how to create a new post in the different Menu options I’ve created. Every time I create a New Post it automatically goes under the Home “Page” Menu instead of giving me the option to post under others. For example, I have three menu options: Home, Faith, Jerry. All of my new posts automatically go under “Home” instead of giving me the option to post under “Faith” or “Jerry.” How do I create new content under each different menu option? Thank you.

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

    I understand what you are saying. That is how the default menus work.

    You need to create category pages to achieve what you want. Category pages allow the posts under Faith category in the Faith menu and all the post in Jerry category in the Jerry menu. Rest of the posts will be under Home menu.

    To start with, create two categories names Faith and Jerry. Here is how to create categories: https://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/#adding-categories-via-the-dashboard

    Then create category pages using the instructions in steps 1 and 2 of this support guide: https://en.support.wordpress.com/category-pages/view-all/

    Then follow the step 3 of the above support guide to add categories to your menu.

    Try these steps and feel free to ask if you have more questions :)

    Thank you for the help with that. I figured out how to do what you were talking about. Does it always show the post in the “home” page, as well as the other created category pages? Is there a way to only post certain things in different pages without it all being centralized in the “Home” Page?

    Also, unrelated, is there a way to make the first page that pops up a custom page, instead of the “home” page that has all the blog posts? For example, a welcome page that describes the various pages people can go to?

    Thanks for the help

    The home page is set to blogs page (latest posts) by default. So it displays all the posts.

    You can set a static front page using these instructions: https://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/front-page/ and have category pages that display posts from the specified categories.

    Give it a try and feel free to ask if you have more questions :)
