WordPress question

As some of you may have noticed, I created a new page for the Mount and Blade: Warband story. However, I’m not seeing the option to “post” to that page. I can only update the one entry, which would get way too long. Is it possible to somehow post to that page, or is it only possible to post to the main page, and the other pages can only be one-off posts?

    As far as I have found, separate pages are just singular posts. It had never made sense to me.

  2. What Shadow said. I think they’re separate, single posts. Probably something meant for WordPress.org users on hosted blogs?

    AFAIK there is no way in a wordpress.com hosted site to create a child category that acts like a separate site (which is what I think you’re after). We’re still trying to figure out how/best way to do that with our theme on a self hosted site.

    Two options I can think of:

    (1) Make M&B a WP category and link to that category URL in your nav bar. May be suboptimal if you are looking to mirror a similar home page look as in HC, but is very easy. (we do this on our site, linked in my sig).

    (2) Since you’re running on wordpress.com, you could create a brand new site with the same theme and link to it from your HC nav bar. But then you lose a lot of synergy between the sites, and add admin hassle.

    Email me, or PM me via the Inq forums if you have more questions.

    It can be done, but not on wordpress.com sites. It’s a custom template that you create for self-hosted WordPress blogs…

    In lieu of the option on WordPress, for Syncaine’s present situation might it not be easier to simply have that first post link to the next at top/bottom/both?

    If I understand your request correctly, you would like to display a query of posts (possibly from a specific category or tag) within another post or page.

    As Drannos mentioned, you could use a custom page template (which would offer you the greatest control and customization).

    There are several plugins authored to accomplish the same thing or which offer similar functionality. Post Page Associator is the first one that comes to mind. You can learn more about it here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-page-association-plugin/

    Let me know if you would rather go with the custom template option. I’d be happy to help you with that.
