How should I.......News PAGE or POST?? (2 posts)

    I'll try to simplify this the best that I can. I have a section on the site I am developing called "Media Center" that I have set up as a PAGE. Under it I am creating sub-pages such as news, events, publications, etc. So basically it would be something like this....

    • Media Center
      • News
      • Events
      • Publications

    First off I'm not sure whether or not to make the News page a PAGE or POST (with News Category). Seems like for navigational purposes I would need to make it a PAGE otherwise I wouldn't be able to make it a subpage of "Media Center." So, if I make "News" a PAGE. How can I get new posts that I categorize as "news" to go to the "News" PAGE?
    I'm guessing I will have to do something to the loop. But when you create a PAGE, it doesn't actually create an .php file that I can simply modify that individual page. What do I need to do?

    You can NOT. Don't ever mix Pages and posts.
    However, there might be workarounds... see later below.

    Don't even look for it! There are NO files when it comes about the content - everything is stored in the database.

    Possible fix for menu:
    use the Redirectify plugin and make the News Page to be directed to your "news" category archive page.
