Some questions related to WordPress!

86/100

You know one of those phases in life, you want to organize things. Sort them separately and put them in categories. I am in that phase and my muse is my blog. I want to customize some things, like a separate tab for categories. Also, I will be starting my travel series soon so I want to know somethings about that. I am so new here and everyone has such lovely blogs so it’s time to do a bit of revamping and I need help!

1) Should I do a separate page for travel series? If so, if i post on that page will that be on reader and feeds? Or will I need to post here and manually move it?

2) I want to have a page for just pictures I click, does that work? Or should pictures be posted as posts? Like can I instead keep adding them on that page I create? Honestly, my pictures are not that good so I am dicy if they should be posted separately haha.

3) I want to document a page adding the books I read or movies I see, I already have one but it’s so sad that I hardly feel like updating. Is there an option to post those separately on WP that I don’t know of?

I think that’s all the questions for now. I am sorry if this is not something I should be asking but really there is no way to figure it out that easily as google is not really that detailed. I have seen people help me so much here so I thought best to check the same with pros! ๐Ÿ™‚ After all, the moto is to grow together!

  1. from what I see of others WP sites I think wow… sadly… ,my experience is a bit different I upgraded paying for a logo and domain to end up with several versions of me as seperate blog sites and a hard sell from WP to buy what I’d already bought.

    WP is a tech savi place with general online support and webinars as tutorials. You need kit and some know
    how.

    I gave up with my stuff. Poor attitude when the problem is off script. But then others have great sites so I do think it’s my blockhead although not entirely. The sales pitches are intrusive and undermine a credible service.

  3. You got great ideas dear I am really not sure how all these works on wp still. I feel you can categorize different topics under the menu option. Dedicated page too is a good option I hope someone would share their knowledge here. Good wishes โค

  4. I create posts then link them to the page if I so desire…haven’t done it in a while though. I do have a page of just photos that I have posted, and pages for photos I have available at different sites (picfair, pixels, and shutterstock). I need to update it though…

      • Make the post, then with the published page open click on the url and copy it. Then go to the page you want to link to and paste it however you want – either words or photos. When you highlight the words/phrase a drop down box should appear with the “link to” symbol. It should be beside B or I…if you want to link to a photo, click on it and options should appear.

        Sometimes when you publish a post an option will appear “what do you want to do next?” With options below, “copy link” should be an option…if so, click on it, then open the page you want to link to.
        Hope this makes sense and helps…

  5. As I am a relatively new blogger, I think the more seasoned bloggers advice will be more fruitful, however, in my blog I do have a page dedicated to videos, which I am actually going to take down soon, as it is outdated. You can make pages for anything youโ€™d like and can also post the content to your blog. How fun to begin creating new things for your blog! Iโ€™ll be doing some updating this summer too! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  6. “kiss” are you familiar with this principle? i know people have different sites for different types of posts. a photo site for their photos, a food site for their food stuff, a fashion site for their fashion stuff, etc etc etc. but why so many if all of the sites are who they are? your blog site is about you. words, photos, food, fashion, travel…you already have people coming to your site, why confuse them with having to go to see you at an other place? keep it simple for you and us, is my feeling.

    • I was thinking more from the perspective of if people want to check back on something, it should be relatively easier to find if blog is more organized. Does that make sense? If you are looking for a particular post, if it is categorized then we can find it more easily. Also not a different website but just a different page on same website.

  7. I also love to categorize things *channeling inner Monica* so I have also made many categories in my blog page, it won’t be visible on reader feeds, like whatever you will write will be visible but it won’t particularly say its from that category but on the site it will be visible
    OK I know this is confusing but click on this link and do whatever mentioned step by step things will be clear to you

  8. Not a WP expert, but I’ve discovered 2 ways to create pages.
    1) You can assign different types of posts to different categories or tags e.g Travel, Books, or Movies when publishing. Add these categories/tags to your Menu through My Sites>Appearance>Customize>Menus>Customary Main Menu>Add items> Categories. Once added, the categories will become pages. That’s what I’ve done for my site. All posts and pics tagged under these categories will still come through the Reader as posts though. You can do this for the travel series.

    2) You could also create pages dedicated to them and add the information or photos you want. Any updates on these pages won’t come through the Reader and the only way to add posts would be to embed or add links to them.
    I don’t know if all WP dashboards are the same, but whenever I try to add a new page, I get options for the type of page I would like to create e.g. Gallery, Home, Featured, Blog. If you have these options too, you could choose the gallery option for the Pictures’ page and add them directly.
    Hope that helpsโค

  9. Wp readers only shows your new posts from your blog page feed.
    It won’t show the news pages you’ll create.
    Its good to make different category for your different ideas, like travel category for travel ones.
    There is only one post page of every WP website and every post of yours appears on that same page i.e., blog page, despite of diff. Categories.

    And every time youll post new blogs on any category, it will eventually appear on your website’s blog page and then on WP readers here.
    However, creating categories will internally create a special page for that specific category only in which only those post appears that falls under those category. But it has nothing to do with WP reader here.

    Make sense?
