Posting to a new page I create
I’m sorry but I don’t believe that can be done on a wordpress.com blog. Just to be clear about this please take note of the differences between a post and a page. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
There is a workaround that can be used to order your blog in a book form. Perhaps it will be suitable http://en.support.wordpress.com/write-a-book/
Hi, thanks for your answer. Yeah, I’m using the write-a-book feature already, whereby I have my static about page which links to the actual content. I can see from the first link you provided that it is indeed “not possible to post to a page” so I think you’re right, what I’m looking for can’t be done.
Thanks anyway, I enjoyed your blog on SEO.
Just categorize your posts properly (like you didn’t do for your most recent one) and add the Categories widget.
Thank you, that’s a great idea.
You’re welcome. If I were you I wouldn’t use the dropdown option: you’ve aptly named the widget, but “Select Category” betrays it. Besides, it’s more practical for a visitor to see all the Parts and just click on one of them; the dropdown is more suitable when you have tenths or hundreds of categories.
And I’ve got a further trick for you. If you wish, you can now take the category URLs and turn them into page tabs (subpages to “Fishing in Beirut”). See here:
Thanks very much for your time, your ideas are excellent. Re: the further trick, do you mean that if I create a new page and make the title of it the url for everything categorised as “part 2” for example, that would be a way of essentially doing what I wanted to in the first place?
Thanks again for the advice.
Yes: create a page, put a link to the relevant category URL in its title (a link, not just the URL), and select “Fishing in Beirut” as its parent.
Cool, thanks :)
