    I am wondering if I want to create new pages for my blog, each with a different subject, can I post to my blog and have it automatically copy that post to a specific page?
    For instance. I want to create a blog to keep my Sims 3 creations on.
    So I want to have a separate page for each section.
    A page titled “Lots” to keep photos of any buildings I create under.
    A page called “Sims” to keep pictures of Sims I created on, and so on.
    So when I have a new creation and want to make a post about it, I’d like to post it to the main page and then also have a copy posted and the page it fits in. So new Sim post should be posted simultaneously to my “Sims” Page. Can that be done and if so how?

    The blog I need help with is bluenooboo3.wordpress.com.

    You cannot post to pages. Pages are static and sit outside the blog structure. With WordPress, you use categories to organize posts into subjects and then you can add those categories to your navigation using a custom menu.
    Read this first > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    There is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. But we can create the appearance that we have posted to more than one page.

    We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the Categories pages and Archives pages. Note: There must be one published post in each Category in order for there to be anything to display.

    A custom menu allows you to display Categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages and custom links in your custom menu as well.

    Thanks for the answer.
    So if I have posts assigned to Categories and had Categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation instead of Pages that would solve my problem.

    Only thing and the blog I wanted to use I found no way of getting rid of the “Pages” on the horizontal navigation . Is that just he way the blog is set up or can one remove it?

    The default top menu displays all your published pages. As timethief explained, when you create a custom top menu, you can make it display your categories instead – or any mixture of categories, pages and other links.

    So it is possible to delete the pages if you customize your Menu. I”m trying to do that but i can’t seem to get rid of them in the Koi theme.
    I’ve read the creating custom menu instructions which are pretty plain, but i still get the Pages showing up in the sidebar.I’ll try it again or maybe I’ll just switch to simpler theme until I understand this better.

    This is not a matter of deleting pages. When you create a custom menu you choose what to place in it. If you do not want to place pages in it then don’t include them.

    Well first I messed up. I said horizontal navigation when I meant the Vertical navigation bar.
    I was not referring to the top navigation bar but rather the side bar.
    And on the side bar It had a Pages tab and that’s what I was trying to get rid of.
    And yes, had I fully understood what Pages were I would not have included them to begin with.
    But my problem was I did include them and once I did could not figure out how to get the “Pages” tab out of of the side bar.
    I wound up working on this and I understand it lot better now.
    Instead of adding pages, I just added categories and now when I publish a post I also check off the category I want it in and it posts a copy under that category. So I got what I wanted.
    I just didn’t know the Lingo and confused Pages for Categories. And then said horizontal in stead of vertical, And that’s what caused this mess.
    I’ve got to learn the terms but that comes with practice..Only my second day at this.;) But at least I learned something.
    thanks
