Hey - Sometimes my posts ends up in another section of my website, under "categories" and when I edit post, to untick it from categories - it does not work!
I end up deleting post and manually publishing all over again.
Is there an easier way to do this?
Anyone else experienced this nuisance?

Posts and pages are different. Posts go in categories

Thanks hun, I learned this the hard way, I may have to look into themes to get the desired layout/sub headings needed. X.

posts are assigned to categories - this is how wordpress works
pages are not.
posts are tagged onto your blogroll for your visitors to see
and an easy way for your visitors to find content useful to them is to use categories - these can be menu items( clicking on these will recall all the content assigned to that category)
it is a useful feature for organizing your site structure.
good luck

Very helpful info, it's just a pain when posts appear in categories and then onto other sub headings. creating duplicate posts but I see what you mean.

you have control which categories they appear in
to change it go into the post menu and hover over the post andclick on quick edit
you will see a list of categories - some with tick boxes.
adjust thes until you get the one you want ( ideally you only have a post in one category)
then click update and it will apprear only in that category
have fun

Hey there Farah, sounds like a 'theme' thing...but send a message to support and have them take a look for you.
