Categories and pages together (8 posts)

    First of all, great work, wordpress is really amazing!

    Now we have pages and categories. On pages we can post news and so n, while categories are meant for organized posting or something like this. But I would like something like this:

    We have pages a,b,c,d,e,f and so on
    and we have categories funny, sad, new and so on
    then we make post called A lesson.

    This is posted under category new, but what must I do to be posted under a page, and when we would have B lesson it would be posted under page b. Is this possible???

    Not really.
    Pages do not have categories (although for internal technical reasons, they are always "assigned" to the default category - but you can forget that, because practically Pages are not categorizable... I wonder if such a word exists...)

    You can set a page to have another page as its parent, I believe. When you're editing "A Lesson" you can select its parent under, surprise surprise, "Page Parent".

    Is this what you're looking for?

    I am afraid I don't understand your question. Could you, please, re-phrase it?

    ok we have categories right?? we sort them to funny, sad, new...
    now we have a new pack of categories - a,b,c,d,e,f,
    and when I'm posting something I pick new and b, so when I chose new I'll get this post and when I choose b I'll also get this post...so that we have one post under two categories..

    You can have a post under X (=unlimited) categories. That's right.

    Categories also can have their own subcategories, see an example of nested sub-sub-sub on my testblog in the sidebar:

    Caveat: when clicking on a parent category WP will display not only the posts from that category BUT all the posts from its children categories, too.
