    hello.

    My site is http://www.BarnGamerz.com

    If you can see, I have a PAGE called "Anime". Currently I have a coding that throws full posts from the CATEGORY "Anime" onto that page.

    That is NOT what I am looking for.

    Here is an example of what I am looking for.
    Go to http://www.Hak5.org. You will see a page called "Episodes". hovering over it you get - "www.Hak5.org/episodes" which is the page right?

    CLICKING that page, you get "www.hak5.org/category/episodes"

    THAT is what I am looking for. I want posts to show up in my category "Anime" as if they clicking the actual category, but clicked the page.

    I have tried man days of looking for plugins/code remaps and I have had no success.

    Can someone please help me? I would be extremely greatful!

    I am basically just trying to change the link of clicking on a page to a CATEGORY.. changing the URL to the page does not work.. wish it did.

    Page_Links_to does not work.

    WordPress automatically permalinks a specific URL to a page.

    Page_links_to is just adding another URL at the end of the existing url..

    heres an example..

    http://barngamerz.com/anime/www.BarnGamerz.com/category/www.BarnGamerz.com/category/BarnGamerz.com/category/Anime

    Why is it doing it this many times? Or better yet.. why is the original PAGE URL still there?

    No idea. The plugin seems like it would of been amazing. But unfortunately does not work.

    Unless I am doing something wrong. Any suggestions?

    I have manually added a link to the top my menu bar for a videos category, check it out and let me know if that is what you are looking to accomplish.. my site is admindaily.com and its the Videos category on the top nav

    That is pretty much exactly what I am looking for.

    As my example in my first post, I want the link on the page navigation to link to ... barngamerz.com/category/anime

    Know what I mean? So that the list on the page is like they clicked my "anime" category.

    I figured it out.

    My page.php was still trying to generate a category query on itself causing the url errors.

    Thank you very much for the help all of you.

    What resolved this? The Page_To_links plugin.

    Highly recommended.
