How to make my blog pages/categories to upload new blog posts like home page (8 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm trying to figure out how to create new blog posts to appear as new posts (as they do on my home page) onto my other pages/categories. Currently it is set up that if I upload content to a page or category it doesn't allow me to add tags and means I will basically have one long continuous write up of different posts separated by spacing and not by individual posts.

    E.g. under my page titles "interviews" I have had to create separate categories for the different interviews to avoid uploading all of the interviews onto one long continuous page. What I would prefer (instead of having a super long list of categories) is when clicking on "interviews" that it takes me to a page that acts like my home page does with the various separate posts that when clicked on take me to that interview post.

    I might not be explaining myself properly but here is my blog site if anyone can help please:

    Thanks in advance

    ;p

    You want to show excerpts instead of the full post, from your description.

    Here is a step by step that may be easier than using the codex:

    No I want to show the full posts as it does on my home page but on my other pages, in order to upload to different write ups, I have to keep entering the same post draft to upload the text - it doesn't allow me to add brand new posts to one page.

    Right now you have a page called interviews with many other child pages.

    If you create a new category called interviews

    And make all your interviews as posts instead of pages and assign them all with the category of interviews

    then create a menu item with that category. (instead of a page)

    It would work like your home page.

    Thanks Janet4now - however, if I do it step by step as you described below - it still puts the post onto my home page (along with all my style diaries) and does not put it under the 'Interviews' Menu page - I would like it to only appear on the 'Interviews' page but ACT like a home page (in addition to still keeping my home page as it is) whereby I can post new posts to 'Interviews' instead of having a drop down list listing all the interviews in tab format ;p

    You can change what categories appear on your home page as well.

    Same method.

    Thank Janet - I still don't think I am explaining myself properly as I don't want to change the way my home page is, I just want my Interviews page to act like my home page does. Thanks for all the advice though ;p

    Does anyone else have any suggestions?
