Linking posts to show up in categories, subcategories and top menu

    Hi there,

    I am having a lot of trouble understanding how I am supposed to set up my posts so that when I have categorized something as, for example, a Travel story, that it opens up when I go to the top menu and click Travel.

    Now when I click on my menu categories, each one links to an empty page.

    But each of my posts have been 1) tagged as the word of the category (for example Travel or Vintage) and 2) checkmarked as the word of the category (for example Travel or Vintage). Still, none of my posts are linked to the menu categories.

    Am I missing some other step behind the scenes? I am confused about the difference between tags and categories, do not know what Parent Category means and further, do not know how my subcategories can link to the posts if I cannot even link the categories to the posts.

    Thanks for any insight!

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

    Hello,

    The main difference between tags and categories is in their purpose.

    Tags are a contextual element, while categories are organizational. Sounds scary?

    Let me explain – tags are used to “describe” content of your post by using the most frequent keywords. Categories are used to group similar post together.

    For example: If you are writing a post about pizza – tags can be mozzarella, cheese, tomato… And you can associate that post with category – Italian Food.

    Both tags and categories can be added to your navigation menu, like any other item. To add items to your navigation, please follow the instructions: https://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

    Thank you,
