category checkbox for pages? (3 posts)

    under "write post" you get the nice category check boxes, but not on "write page".

    is there a way to control what category an entry on a page gets, it seems to always use the default category?

    the only way ive been able to change it is to change the default category option every time i create an entry on a new page.

    Pages are not blog posts so they don't offer the ability to exist in different categories.
    But the default page layout code is the same as a blog single post, instead of worrying about the category, you should instead copy index.php to page.php in your theme directory, and edit the "meta" line so it doesn't try to display category information.
