How do you add articles to a blog - It doesn't seem possible???

6 replies
It does seem possible to add one but not more. I wanted to add my articles to my blog and I don't want them all to go to the blogs homepage where every post you make seems to go even if you have a category set up. I created a new PAGE but it seems like you can't add more than 1 post to a page. So you can have only one article on a blogs PAGE. That doesn't seem right. Does anyone know how I can make a bunch of articles go to my articles PAGE on my blog below in my sig. Right now I just have a widget there. It seems to me there is no way to avoid every new post from going to the homepage of the blog so I can't seem to put my articles in a CATEGORY without them going to the homepage where I don't want them to go!

ANyone know how to make a bunch of articles go to their own page or category and not the homepage of the wordpress blog???

    The only answer I can think of is to have a static home page and then turn on the category menu bar.

    Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will provide a better answer!

    PS - I can't see your blog - just getting a page not available message

    Make a new folder and make new wordpress installation for it. For instance your domain is wwwww.com and you have installed wordpress on it.

    Then you just set up a new WP installation on wwwww.com/articles

    Then put your articles there and link to that folder from homepage, vice versa. It's possible to make categories page by hacking the script in the template, but since wordpress use php include for the templates usually, you will find some errors (for instance, the posts will be still goes to homepage, etc.)

    You can get a theme that will do that for you. Revolution Pro has some. Take a look at Uncle Brice's Blog as an example.

    There is also a Wordpress theme called "Hybrid" that I just came across and am just now learning how to use but it does what you need and gives you 10 options for the subpages. To clarify you can make a home page, have it set to show the categories and then make a subpage and give it the "blog" option out of the 10 and it will show the posts. I would recommend that you join the Hybrid authors membership for $25 a year to get all the tutorials on how to set it up, happy blogging!
