    How do I add content under my blog pages?

    Ok. so maybe I'm just technically challenged, but I have a wordpress blog with 2 pages and a few categories. When I make a new post I'm able to check a category to put it under, however I don't know how I can attach multiple posts under my second page. I can alter the one paragraph that I put on the page itself, like the introduction, but can't post separate blogs on this page. Ack..

    I think what you want are custom category pages -- category pages are those that list posts in a specific category -- rather than "pages", which are meant to be static content, not lists of posts. By creating custom category pages, you can write that text you want to appear above/below/beside the list of posts.

    Here are some instructions/examples on creating these pages in your theme:

    Just to expand on Dan's suggestion, rather than writing some html in the category template, you can use http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/get_page to pull in the content of a particular page.

    thank you. this site gave me a lot of useful advice. I guess I was just used to trying to figure out what I could do in wordpress without inserting code. Would inserting code be easier as far as blogging is concerned?
