[resolved] Working With Categories (5 posts)

    The installation went great. Everything worked like it was supposed to. So now, I have a question about how the categories work.

    What I'd like (I'm assuming categories is the answer) is for users to come to my blog and see the current (latest) blog, but once they click on one of the blog entries, they'll go to the blog but also see a list of all the other blogs that fall into that category. Is that doable and if so, point me in the right direction please?

    What do you mean by 'all the other blogs'? Do you mean the million of blogs on the net? Easiest method probably would be to include Technorati tags if that's what you're thinking.

    I think he means "posts", drmike.
    WordPress has "posts", "Pages" and "Categories".
    Your posts are grouped by category by default. When clicking on a post title, you are automatically taken to the full post in that category with the posssibility of viewing all posts in that category.

    If by "blogs" you mean your other articles or posts: Most themes do what you're asking by default. Typically, over in the sidebar or footer are the categories that have been used. Click a category, get all the articles in that category.

    Similarily, many/most themes show the category by each article as well. Same deal, click it and see all other articles in same cat.

    Thanks a lot. Yes by 'other blogs' I'm meaning posts. I didn't have enough content to realize it would do this automatically. ;)
