If you're like many people you're probably doing reviews on your website.

In this short video I show you how to create a Review tab for your menu that includes a drop down menu with specific categories for your reviews.

Now you can do this for anything I just used reviews as the example in the video.

Enjoy

What if I don't want to put Good and Not Good under my Reviews link? What do I put instead so it won't be a dead link?

If you don't want a dead link and you want the tab in the menu to be live, simply add the URL and then name the link whatever you want.

What is the URL supposed to say? I put the name of my website then /reviews. This made all of my posts appear on the Review tab. I want my blog posts to be on the Home page and my reviews to be on the Review page. I'm having trouble getting that to happen.

I'm sorry I meant to say simply add the category to your menu

So I assume you have already created a category called Review. So all you need to is add that category to your menu.

So go to menu in your back office and there you will see Categories click the little down arrow and check the box by the category called Review and then click add to menu.

Now you can either keep the tab where it is in your menu or move it to where you want it. Be sure to save your menu.

Now any posts you have you simply need to assign the category Review to the post. Your post will like always will appear on your blog roll and automatically be placed on the review page.

So when you click the review tab in your menu you'll be taken to your review page which will have all your review posts listed in the same order as your blog roll.

If you want assign old posts to your review category simlpy go to your dashboard and click posts - for any posts you want to assign to your review category hover over the post title and then click Quick Edit and there you'll see Categories - simply check Review and save your update

Hope this helps

Thank you. That helped with the Review tab. However, I thought that if I checked off Static Page my blog posts would show up on the Home page. They are not there. The only thing showing on my Home page is the words Blog Post and edit. I have my Home page set to Blog Posts and my Posts Page set to Reviews.

In the Appearance and then Menu section the Home page is there as a "Custom link". Is that right? Or should I make it a category as I did the Review tab??

To have your blog roll show on your home page you need to set things in Setting under Reading to Your Latest Posts. Make sure to always save your changes.

Yes, if you want to have a Home tab in your menu then you would create a custom link.
