Posts and Navigation Pages linking (4 posts)

    Greetings,

    I'm working on developing my own wordpress website and one of the ideal functions I'd like to learn about is linking my individual posts to their respective pages found in my navigation menu (About, Leaks, Events, etc...) Therefore, if someone only wanted to see all posts categorized as "Events", then they could just click on the "Events" link in the navigation menu.

    Unfortunately, all of the youtube tutorials and online explanations have left alot to be desired and as a result, I have not been able to figure out how to link individual posts to pages. I've tried permalinks, I've already set up post categories and also download a "Pages Link to" widget, but I still can't get this to work.

    Here is the website - http://www.thesiegesound.com

    If you look at the website, I've made one post, entitled "The Siege Play Movement Festival 2011". I have that post categorized under "Events", but when I click the "Events" link in the navigation menu, it will not link the post.

    I'm sure there is something that I'm forgetting to setup or do in the back-end. Can anyone help me resolve this issue?

    Hi,

    When you made the "events" link in the menu did you make a page or add the category "events" to the menu?

    if you add the category to the menu, you will set up what is called a 'Category archive page', and when visitors go to that link they will be presented with a page of the latest posts from that category.

    here is an article I wrote on the topic:

    Hope it helps!

    I added the category "Events" to the menu, so it should have worked. Unfortunately, it has not.

    I will read the article. Hopefully it provides some insight.

    Do you have any content in the "Events " category? The page is actually working but you don't seem to have any content in that category. Once you do , you should be good !
