    Hi, is there any way to put pages in seperate categories. I mean can I create categories for pages ?
    Like I have few pages that I want to go under category head "Copper Products" few under "Fiber Products" and so on.

    thats what posts are for.

    Per another request:

    you cant put posts on pages, and you cant put pages in categories.

    they serve separate purposes. they = pages and posts.

    and theres nothing that stops you from making a particular post look like a page, thereby negating the necessity to use a page for something a post does fine, in the first place.

    Thanks, I understand the difference between posts and pages. The only thing is I need some static pages to write about the different category of product lines we have and posts (that are time based) will talk about the latest technological advancements etc. in those product lines.

    So, the static pages for products have to be there in the sidebar with proper categories always.

    I don't know how to display pages in categories (for pages only).

    I think wordpress does not have this thing inbuilt. Though I feel it would be a great feature so that wordpress can be used as CMS cum blog.

    Pages don't have categories.

    Pages can have parent/child relationship.

    Yeah I read that, thanks. Now only if I could manipulate parent and child relationship.

    I need something like this - suppose you are visiting Parent page B (or any of its subpage)

    Parent A
    subpages not visible
    Parent B
    subpage 1 (visible)
    subpage 2 (visible) and so on

    In short subpages of only one parent should be visible at a time and that should be the one user is visiting.

    Search for a plugin "fold page".

    I guess "fold page" uses javascript and that is not search engine friendly. There must be a code to do that.
