How to Have Your Wordpress Posts Appear on a Page
I am still in my "newbie" state, so am not able to yet create training. But....I wanted to share this. And besides - having it here will make it easy to find next time!
So my task was, I wanted to be able to happily blog / post away so that all of my posts appear on the main page so visitors can see what is new BUT I wanted to be able to keep the posts categorized so that they would appear on the Menu (or Page in WordPress speak) that was relevant for that category. Example: One of the pages on my site is COFFEE GIFTS, so when I wrote about COFFEE GIFTS, I wanted it to appear on the home page and on the related page. There was no easy way to do that - unless I wanted to write code (ie: not easy).
Instead, I found a plugin that works PERFECTLY. It is called Page Links To. Easy to install. Just go to your wordpress main page. Go to Plugin => Add New => Search for PAGE LINKS TO. Install and activate. Now, to make it work there are 2 important requirements. One - you have to set up categories that relate to your pages AND you make use of the categories when you write a post. EXAMPLE: My post was about coffee gifts, I have a category COFFEE GIFTS and it was then selected / assigned for that post.
Once your post is categorized and the plug-in is installed, go to the page that you want to have this category appear on. At the bottom of the page, you will see the PAGE LINKS TO. Just plug in the URL of the category page that relates to that menu option and there you have it.
Hope this helps!
I know it can "sound" confusing - but think about it for a minute or two. A page can display all posts from a specific category.
Any questions (easy ones....)I'll see what I can do to help
