[resolved] Multiple Posts in Page? (4 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm running a personal blog, and I have all of my posts in the Home section. However, I'd like to have another page, titled "Reviews" in which I'd like to post multiple posts in the future, every time I review something. But these posts will be in the Home page too.

    I read somewhere that I need to swap the pages bar at the top for Categories, but I cannot work out how to do this. I'd like to have the pages along the top in a bar too, so relying on Catagories alone will not work for me.

    I am not particularly experienced with coding and all that technical stuff so simple steps would be helpful! Thanks!

    I'm not sure what you mean in the second paragraph, but it's possible to have a page that just shows Reviews and maintain the same menu. If you assign a category of Reviews to a particular post, then you can create a menu item called Reviews that displays a page of those posts.

    Go to Appearance > Menus.

    On the left, there should be a section called Categories. Expand the section, and you should see a list of the different categories that you've created.

    Select the Reviews category, click the Add to Menu button, then the menu item will appear at the bottom of the Menu Structure on the right.

    Drag & drop the menu item to where you want to place it, then click the Save Menu button.

    When the Reviews menu item is selected, the user will see a list of posts that belong to the Reviews category.

    Hi MissBullough,

    We're glad that you were able to solve the first part of your question.

    If you'd like to remove your "review" posts from the main blog ("home") page, you'll have to modify the query before the posts are output which will require some custom code.

    If you're interested, the WordPress action that you'll want to hook into is pre_get_posts. There's even a section on that page specifically for excluding categories on your main page.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank You
