    That’s correct and it’s what I clearly stated above. There is no blogger initiated advertising allowed on free hosted WordPress.com blogs.

    Final questions do I really need categories for my site? As you can place pages under the main title page. For example on my website the Barclays Premier League Page has clubs such as Arsenal underneath it so is there any need to categories things in the appearance menu etc. Also one adding posts onto the site how do I get these pieces onto the pages they relate to such as Premier League, Arsenal theres a tick box thing on the side before you post something on wordpress isnt there? Which would enable the post to go onto the premier league and arsenal pages only correct? My website is http://www.football247now.com by the way. Thanks, sorry for the bother!

    Not all themes provide drop-adowns to sub-pages natively. There are two approaches you can use.
    Page Order – Page attributes module order numerically rather than alphabetically http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/page-attributes/#order
    This approach is for use by those who only want to have Pages.

    The second approach is to create a custom menu. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus 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/or Tags pages and/or Custom Links in your custom menu as well. You are in charge of what appears in a custom menu. You choose the order in which to display any and/or all the foregoing in your custom menu. . If you have a custom menu then you must establish consistency. Check the Pages sub-pages themselves to see if you have established a Parent page and child page “hierarchical structure” in the page attributes module. Remove if required.

    Also remove any “order” numbers you have assigned that may conflict with the order you are creating by dropping and dragging. Or simply change them so they are the same order as you establish in the menu. Establish consistency – problem solved

    I have created a custom menu but I haven’t created any categories when I created the page arsenal I was able to shift it to the right on the custom menu enabling it to appear under the Premier League section so I dont need categories or anything then as it seems to be working this way simply with the theme I am using. But when doing it this way once new posts are up will the tick options be available for the pages and I could just tick arsenal and premier league for example if its a piece that relates to this league and club?

    Pages bloggers create are static pages and the software does not post anything at all to them ever. Dynamic pages like Categories pages are created by the software when we assign categories to a post and publish it. Posts do automatically appear only on the dynamic pages created by the software.

    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/

    I’m sorry but I’m not willing to invest any more time into this. Tag pages are dynamic pages just as Categories pages are.
