    Hi there.
    I'm looking for something to help me categorize the pages in the menu on my wordpress site. I know that you can make a page parent to other pages, but there seems to be a few problems with that. First of all, I don't want the categories to be pages in themselves. Let me illustrate:

    ---
    Page category 1 (headline, not link)
    - Page
    - Page

    Page category 2 (headline, not link)
    - Page
    ---

    Can this be done?
    (Sorry if this is something simple. The whole WordPress thing is completely new to me)

    I am afraid it cannot be done with WP out of the box.
    Pages do not have categories.
    Using the proper template tag would list ALL the Pages in one place/list.

    Are you talking about Pages or post pages? Those can easily be categorized in your sidebar. See Customizing Your Sidebar, but Pages, with a capital P, cannot be categorized.

    I was talking about Pages. Too bad. Then I guess wordpress isn't for me.

    I'm just curious - if Pages can't be categorized, then why, on the Write Page tab, does it say at the bottom:

    Filed under: Uncategorized � @ 10:53 am

    That's where I got the impression I could categorize them.

    By default, Pages are not meant to be categorized, so you should not use any template tag that will display the category.

    However, with the help of a plugin, it should be possible to categorize Pages.

    Thanks. Do you know the name of a plugin that will do that? I'm using the setup that came with WordPress when I installed it, so the note I mentioned earlier is the default. That's why I was confused.

    Such plugin doesn't exist yet, as far as I know.
