    Hi,
    When I write a post, it appears on the homepage of my blog, and I have created 3 other pages and I want these posts to appear on the homepage and on these particular pages.
    to make it clearer i will give an example.
    let's suppose that i have a site that has a homepage - new cars - old cars - contact us ... and i write a post titled " Brand new Ferrari is amazing " and i want this post to appeat on the homepage and under the page : new cars. how do I organise this ? is there a plugin or something that could help ? and please make it simple for me for i'm new to all of this !
    Thank you people

    When you're starting out, it is tough to make sense of all the terminology, like "posts," "pages," etc. Take a look at the Pages article in the Codex. It does a better job than I can of explaining the difference.

    Pages are what show up in most theme's main menu, as you've discovered. While it is possible to create a custom template that lists all the posts from a category and assign it to a page, so you could accomplish what you describe, an easier and more common way to accomplish it in WordPress is to create Categories of "New Cars" and "Old Cars" (Posts -> Categories), then assign the corresponding articles to those Categories.

    Next, if your theme supports widgets, go Appearance -> Widgets, click on the "Categories" widget, and drag it into one of your theme's Widget Areas. The Categories widget will list your "New Cars" and "Old Cars" categories, as well as any others you create, in the widget as links to pages containing just the posts in those categories.

    If you want more control over the order of the categories in the widget than the Categories Widget allows, you can instead create a custom menu (Appearance -> Menus) based on the categories you created, then use the Custom Menu widget to place the menu in one of your theme's widget areas.

    Thank you so much for your clear, effective answer. I will try to do all of this hoping that it will work. and it will work anyway, it's just a matter of time. and yes, i don't really know the difference between pages and Pages, and i've seen people explaining this, but i'll figure it out.
