    I’m tearing my hair out!
    I created my blog as a website.

    Menu is created via pages

    http://hellogeorge.co.uk/HelloGeorge/wordpress/

    I have incorporated my blog into the menu and divided it into two sub categories (so essentially I have two blogs running (tree structure).

    I cannot figure out how to use/ turn the two subcategories into blogs (timely info rather than static)

    I have tried to test the function by composing a post and using the category tick boxes to link to the pages but it does not work.

    What should i do peeps? any idea’s?

    Have i done the menu incorrectly?

  • If there’s a way to do it that way it’s beyond me. I would set up two category pages, or two custom queries, each on it’s own page. Each can pull all posts from a selected category(ies).

    Hey deepbevel,

    I’m a total novice and don’t understand what you mean. Could you please expand?

    Also how do i make only the subcategories clickable and not the main menu title eg ‘Blog’?

    First question:

    Try making a category page, go to apperance/menus. You’ll have to create your whole menu as custom, but it’s easy.

    Second question:

    When you create the category pages, make a dummy page above them. Do that by adding a custom link menu item, also done from the menu settings area. Do that by putting a # for the url.

    then, off-set the category pages to the right, under the dummy page. This makes them as subpages under the dummy tab on the front end.

    Thanks for the help. What you suggested worked.

    great, carry on!
