    Okay, So I am not quite sure if I am doing this correctly. So I feel like starting over with advice that is correct from the people here at the wordpress forums.

    I created a website. My main intentions are the following:

    Have a navigation bar that includes
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Home Life News Gaming Television
    ----------------------------------------------------------

    When I make a blog post, I want it to go under Home.
    I also want it to go under the category that I assigned it to.
    I have made categories already but I don't know the correct way to make these posts not only go to the home page but each category that I list the post under.

    People have recommend me videos to watch but I haven't had luck with any of them yet. I just want a clear answer on how to do this.

    Thank you,

    [Per the Forum welcome we ask you NOT bump posts. We use the 'no replies' search on these forums regularly to find people who still need help. By bumping, you remove yourself from that list and make it HARDER for us to find you!]

  2. The way blogs work is like this:

    All post appear on your homepage

    Posts also appear in categories once you've assigned them a category.

    WordPress also assigns one category as a default.

    So when you write a post, you choose which category to assign it to. If you do not select one, it will be assigned the default one.

    I understand that, but I don't understand how I can link these category pages to the links on the navigation bar.

    The posts go to the categories but I want the categories to show up on the pages on the navigation bar.

    just goto http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/nav-menus.php

    and add your category as menus
