The post went to my blogs and I want it on the Short Story menu. Can't find how to change it. I hope it can be changed. Thank you

Thank you Nathaniell, Jovo and others here. I guess I won't worry about it being in two places. Thought that might be an issue. I had added a story before and it went where I wanted and I thought this one would too. Oh, well. Thank you all again.

You would need to see if your theme allows for, or to install a plugin to remove the post from your blog roll. You could potentially have your blog roll exclude certain categories, and make your post that category, so it's listed in one place, but not the other.

But having your blog post in multiple places is not an issue. AIO SEO takes care of any SEO implications for that.

There is no harm of having a post in several places. So you can leave it in the blog roll and in addition go to Appearance, Menus, Posts, Add to menu. Then drag and drop under the item in the menu whare you want it. Save Menu after that.

Or do as John says, make a page of it and do the same as I described above. There is a plugin pType Converter to change post to page, done in seconds. After that deactivate the plugin.

Open the post's editor and over on the right side you should be able to uncheck the category that is putting it in the 'blog' category then check the Short Story category.

I appreciate the help, but I'm missing something. The post is now in two places, under the blog menu and the short story menu. I only want it under the short story menu. How do I delete it from the blog list? The post is only listed once in the post area. I hope I'm being clearer here. Thank you again.

Probably just need to open up "Menus" and then delete that post from the menu. You'd also want to delete it from the "Blog" category.

Dashboard>Appearance>Menus ... select the correct menu then click on the post down arrow. At the bottom on the right in red you'll see Remove. Click on Remove and it's deleted!

Hope that helps!

Go back into menus and choose to add the short story category to the menu. Then all posts with that category will fall on the right menu. Add additional categories to the menu as you wish.

Thank you so much for replying. It still isn't working the way I want. I was able to get it to the menu I wanted, but it's still in blogs too. How do I delete it out of blogs?

If you don't want an article in the blogroll, write a page and add to menu. Menu is for pages, although you can add posts to a menu. Categories are for posts, and you cannot add pages to categories. Sounds confusing, but there is some deep logic to it.
