Hi,
I have a problem with wordpress. I have a wp site that I created 5 pages, 1 of them is default page. I will call them: Home A B C D. When I post a new post, the post always shows on Home page but I want it to show on A page. Please give me some advice.
Thanks

    It sounds like you want a WordPress website with a static page as the homepage and all blogs to be shown on another pay. Go to WordPress Dashboard->Settings->Reading and choose the option to show static page as my homepage. Now select the pages that you want to b used as your homepage and blog page. Keep you blog page empty.

      Thanks for reply. It's not like that I want a static page as m homepage. It's like I want to use page as category.For example, Page home: i show people how to make a toy,Page A: I show people how to make a meal. I want to separate them within one blog.
      Thanks

    It's like I want to use page as category.
    That's exactly your problem! You shouldn't "use a Page as category".
    No need for that - category archives do exactly what you want: showing posts from ONE category. Why to re-invent the wheel?

    Don't work "against" WP... work "with" WP.

      OK, I'll work with wordpress. Right now, I have 2 posts and I want them to be a static page. How could I do that?
      Thanks again

    Well, you are NOT working with WP... or you completely misunderstand what WP does and in which way.

    Posts are posts and Pages are Pages.
    You do NOT "transform" posts into Pages and vice-versa.

    You THINK before you start your WP site and decide how your content will be structured, organized etc. Most people skip this step when planning their website; they also don't take the time to understand the tool in their hand... so they end up asking nonsense questions

    You need to get some basic understanding of WordPress.
    Posts are displayed in chronological order (newest on the top) and no post can exist outside of categories = every post must be in a category. (Clicking on a category name it will display/show all the posts ONLY in that category - that's the 'category archive' in WP lingo.)

    Pages DON'T have categories and they are not part of the chronological stream. They display their own content (that you write in "Add new Page") - not posts.
