    I have a parent page, with several sub-pages. Is there anyway to arrange it so a specific category is connected to a page?

    For instance, let's say I have an iPhone page and an iPhone cateogry - if I make a post under the iPhone category is there anyway I can have it post to both the main page and the iPhone page using the iPhone category?

    In other words how do I have the categories show up on their respective pages?

  3. Hey,

    install Page Links To. Create a page and add

    http://www.yourdomain.com/category/iphone/category-name/

    to 'Point to this URL:'.

    That's it .. all posts in this category will display on your main page and on your 'category' page per default.

    Cheers,

    Chris

  4. Chris, at the risk of owing you more aspirin, could I get your help writing my "Page Links to" URL? My link attempts all return a Page Not Found.

    I want all my posts that I categorize under "how to say it" (how-to-say-it) to also show up on the page called "We Need To Talk" (we-need-to-talk).

    Thanks!

    Hoping I was clear enough,
    Lynne

  6. Thanks for the reply. I wasn't successful. May I get more instruction?

    1. Am I inserting this link onto the "we need to talk" (wntt) page?

    Because the "how to say it" posts do not show up on the page. The link is redirecting the whole page to the category archive page (for "how to say it").

    2. Is there a way to maintain the original content of the "wntt" page plus add the posts?

    Thank you,
    Lynne

  7. :-) Page Links to works that way .. it'll redirect the whole page to the link.

    Don't know if there's a plugin doing exactly what you need.

    Cheers,
