Thee has been a lot of questions lately as to how you can create a menu to point to a Blog Roll of a specific topic. Today I will be showing you how quick and simple this process can be.

The Secret Trick

While this may seem like something complicated to do, it is actually fairly easy and just uses your Categories and the Menu Feature. I will be using my Family Game Night Ideas site as an example here for you to follow along with. So let's see how I created a menu under my Game reviews to point to a Blog Roll.

As you can see here I added a menu on my drop down list to view the Game Reviews by post. When you click on that menu item it will take you to a Blog Roll list of all of my Game reviews that I have done on the site. You can visit my site here to see: Family Game Night Ideas

So How did I do this? Let us take a look...

I really like using my categories as the main part of my menu. I usually only do one category per post though. And I remove "category" from the URL. That allows me to move the post in and out of categories (if I change my mind) without causing 404 errors.

I use the categories part of the menu to do this. But I like the way you did it - by just creating it as a link. I will probably start using that. Thanks!

Yeah I thought it was a really simple way of doing it and also makes it easy to change where things show up as well.

Yeah the more I think about the concept the more I really like it. Will definitely have to look at applying this to my sites as well. Especially my game site as I was not totally happy with how I had my menus set up and was also going to rework the categories too.
