    Why does my post appear on every page? I want it to just appear on my home page. When I go into my pages, ‘home’ is not a page even though it shows up when viewing the site. Help!

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

    Hi Jennifer. Did you select “Showcase” under “Page attributes” for each page by any chance?

    @airodyssey – Changing it to “Default” did the trick. I didn’t even realize “Showcase” was selected Thanks!

    @timethief – Thanks for the article. I’m reading it now.

    OK, I’m having a similar problem (disclaimer – I’m totally new to blogging and am techno-challenged). I created a seperate category for recipes (not the main focus of my blog). Is there any way to post the recipes straight to the recipe categor without having them show up on the home page also?? Thanks for letting me piggy-back on this topic.

    It’s important to comprehend hoe the theme is designed to operate. Please read > this helpful article: The workings of Duster / Twenty Eleven

    Staff have provided help for those who want to structure their blog like a website. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/using-wordpress-to-create-a-website/

    What’s critical is:
    (1) a clear comprehension of the differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/
    (2) a clear comprehension of the fact that 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 with drop-downs to sub-categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation where normally only Pages tabs are displayed. If you wish you can also include Pages with drop-downs to sub-pages and custom links in your custom menu as well.

    These are the how-to instructions:
