Displaying a Category on a Page
« on: September 09, 2012, 12:25:14 PM »
I'm having trouble with something. I can't figure out how display a category, in my case "Podcasts", on a page. I would like to name the page, "PODCAST" and have it set up where anytime I make a new podcast, it is displayed on that page. Is there a plugin or way to do this? Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

Create a category called Podcast, then simply add all of your podcasts to that category. You end up with this:

Triangletactical is right.  The url depends on how your site is set up.  I set mine up toskip the category word in my url, as I don't feel like it helps anything.  If you go to categories under posts, view will show you the category page and you can copy the url.

Next add that link to your navigation bar or elsewhere.  What works best may depend on your theme.  http://boomerempowerment.com/wordpress101/links-menus/ may help if you aren't sure how to do this.
