    hi,

    I'd like to setup my blog in a way, where it has multiple pages and multiple categories, one page with a few cateogries, and then another and then another.

    so if I post in a category, it should be published under the page its desired....for eg. page 1 should have category a, b, and c page 2 should have d, e f and page 3 should have xyz.

    so If on a day I post something in a, d and z it should be published in page 1-category a, page 2 category d and page 3 category z.

    I tried many times, but no matter what I am not able to assign a page as a category parent, all pages remain empty and the posts keep adding themselves according to the category they are being published in.

    any help would be appreciated.

    thanks

    Wrong thinking.
    Pages are not meant to display your categories. Use Category_Templates instead.

    Not sure how to pull that off.... But I'm looking to do the same exact thing.... When I figure it out I'll update this post.

    THIS MIGHT HELP IN THE MEANTIME
    Have your categories display instead of pages.

    Simply edit your header.php (or where ever your wp_list_pages tag resides)

    Look For (header.php):

    <ul>
    <?php
    wp_list_pages('depth=1&sort_column=menu_order&title_li='); ?>
    </ul>

    Replace With:

    <ul>
        <?php wp_list_categories('depth=1exclude=300,700&title_li='); ?>
    </ul>

    This will list your Categories in the navigation section of your theme.

    If you wanted Categories & Pages to list:

    <ul>
      <?php wp_list_pages('depth=1&sort_column=menu_order&title_li='); ?>
      <?php wp_list_categories('depth=1exclude=300,700&title_li='); ?>
    </ul>

    Hope this helps!
