New posts go straight to home page (4 posts)

    So I run a web server from an old laptop (linux) and installed WP on it. I can't give a link because my server is really unsecure at the moment... But I have a bunch of categories like home, anime, manga, work, tv, etc, just a personal website...

    Right now everything I post goes straight to the home page and not to the category. Like say I wanted to update the anime category with whatever series I watched, it never posts to the anime category.

    What I want is just a brief intro on the main page/home page (like a post or two explaining the site) and then users would have to click on each category at the top to explore the site further.

    I want certain posts only going to certain categories. I don't want something from the anime category showing up in the tv show category.

    I have done some research and found something called page2cat and a bunch of other addons/extensions/whatever you want to call it.

    I do all the updates on the server myself, so I do run into a lot of problems but I figure them out, so I would say I'm pretty tech savy.

    I hope this makes sense and I can provide more info if need be. And I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 on an old laptop, but still works great.

    What theme are you using?

    Have you set up a Custom Menu? That let's you control what shows up on the menu -

    Twenty Twelve v1.1

    I have heard about custom menus also. But have not done a lot of research. I was just hoping there would be a quick and easy addon for this.

    A custom menu IS quick and easy :) - certainly the most straightforward way to do what you want.

    For the home page, it sounds like you want a static home page - see:
