Support » Fixing WordPress » Link Categories to Pages?

  • So i’ve just created a website using WP, and i’ve made a few categories and then pages with the same category names

    I write a new post and put it into a category (i.e. Music) and then when i click on my Music Page, its blank

    How can i change it so that when i click on my Music page, the post will be there? Please explain in as detailed way possible haha

    Thanks!!

    Ah – well then this method won’t work without editing the theme files, as you’ll need to replace the existing menu with this new one.

    DOH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ok i now have no idea what to do :'(

    A few options:

    1. Learn more about creating child themes and make the necessary code edits yourself – it’s not too difficult if you don’t mind editing some code

    2. Hire someone to make the tweaks you want for you

    3. Live with the categories in the sidebar

    You need to create a child theme with a modified callback in functions.php for wp_nav_menu so that it uses wp_list_categories rather than the default wp_page_menu.

    Or try using another theme – such as Twenty Ten Weaver.

    Maybe someone who knows more about Twenty Ten than I do can confirm how the menu system works – I just looked at this article and it seems to show the custom menu overriding the default, and doesn’t mention code edits.

    Thanks guys, i’ll look into creating a Child Theme

    @zoonini: There is only a single custom menu location in Twenty Ten – in the sidebar.

    @esmi – OK, thanks! I should set up a test install of Twenty Ten sometime so I can help people better. 😉
