Please help. My website is http://www.thewriteway.cc. I have set up the basic menu/user information and uploaded a nice theme. However, the menu system is confusing me and nothing seems to make sense. I've created categories, then pages to put posts on, and created a page to put blog entries onto...but then the pages still appear out of order when I check what is on the site. No matter how many times I try to make changes or look for edits, it seems impossible to put specific posts on specific pages and then put them in specific categories. How does anyone learn how to do this when nothing works?
With links, I created categories for links and then typed in specific links to put under the categories, but they don't show up on the home page, only individual links - so it's as if I never created the categories.
I downloaded a plug in to get a contact page, and was told the form would explain what to do. Nothing is there. Do I create a category for the contact page, then a page, then maybe a post?
I've searched the WordPress.org website but can't find a simple explanation of how these menus/categories work. Can anyone please help? The set up is easy but the menus make me just want to forget trying to learn WP completely since nothing I'm doing is working and nothing makes any sense. Please help. Thanks.
