    Hi,

    I want have three live "sites" and not just additional static 'pages' on my blog, how do I go about doing that?

    I want to be able to post in each 'site' independently as a "real post". Is there a plugin that allows that?

    In my research, I see where 'categories' allows for something like that, but from my understanding 'categories' offers such posts as a drop down menu in the side bar. I want the different 'sites' to be displayed at the header and to be able to be post in them independently of each other.

    Please let me know if there's any way I can do this.

    Thanks sooo much for your help. :)

    So, you want categories . . . but to have the links to those categories in your header's main navigation menu, for example?

    Yes (I think)

    Okay, let's give this a shot then.

    Since I don't know what your "sites" are called/about, I'm going to go with Section1, Section2 and Section3 in my example below. Obviously, replace my name choices with your own (e.g. Music, Literature, Drama).

    First step, create three categories (Section1, Section2, Section3).

    Second, go through all your existing posts and put them in at least one of the three categories. If you want a post to show up in Section1, then put it in the Section1 category. If, for some reason, you want a post to show up in all three sections-- you'll put them in all three categories.

    Now, for the menu. If your theme is using WordPress' custom menus, try this approach. Log in to your dashboard, and go to Appearance -> Menus. You'll see part of the screen lets you add categories to your menu. Just put a checkmark beside the categories you wish to add, and hit the Add button. When the new menu item appears in the menu representation at the top of the screen, you can drag and drop it to be arranged within the menu placement. Once you've got them appearing in the menu where you want them, be sure to save the menu.

    Let me know if that does the trick.
