How do I get a higher res version of this video please? I've tried the Vimeo version and it's just as blurry as this one. Thanks.

How do you get your post page to display categories instead of just a list of all the posts?

Thanks, great info.  How can put that link as a sub menu'd link in a drop down menu? Or in a footer site map?

oops, just saw this is all changed in below thread... thanks though!

I love the video tutorial.
I was wondering how to do the same thing in the header.php. I'm using StationPro3 and I do not see the _nav.php under the Appearance > Editor.
What line would I then add the new nav.
Thanks.

I don't have the _nav.php and the list isn't in the header.php. What to do? I have platform pro.

Great stuff - I am using platformPRO but cannot find the _nav.php and you mention the header.php instead. I looked at this one but cannot seem to recognize the spot where to add the categories URL .

This is exactly what I want to do for my site, but your video is too small to read the actual steps you're doing. You should have a step-by-step guide that we can download for help; especially considering that your feedback is only given randomly between Monday and Friday!

Hi cmunns,
thanks for your advice. It works, but than I don't have the chance to further custom the displayed page.
I bought iblogpro3 and want to integrate a blog category into an existing page (that also shows up in the main navigation). I want to have customized words on that page in a box, and then let show automatically the blogposts of my blog's special category.
Any chance to do this?
Thanks a lot in advance,
Christina

I am using your free template that came with GoDaddy WordPress hosting.

This is an excellent video post and I would not figure out how to edit code to make separate blogs under the same domain name unless I saw your video.

@creatov,

Easier, yes. Better, maybe not.

Using a lot of plugins can often make things go haywire, but I'm glad that it's working great for you!

Thanks for sharing. For dummies a little complicated. I use for the same solution the "Page Links To" plugin. This adds an extra block in your page / post dashboard. In fact this is overriding the standard Perma-link. It's flexible and working very easy. I think it's a better suggestion for solving this problem.

Thank you so much for posting this! I was just trying to figure out how to do this last night. I can't believe it's that easy. I'll be implementing this today and I truly appreciate it =)

PS - I'll be buying iBlogPro 4 very soon as well ;)

 @aerta Hello, when viewing this in a browser on full screen there should be a HD button at the bottom.

Hey there! As Adam said below, this method is actually deprecated as you can use the WP custom menus now to do this. :)

Hi, the WP custom menus make it so much easy. the WP menus says that the theme (PlatformPrp) supports 3 menus, how can I increase this number? Thank You.

Thanks for your reply!! What I want to do is to display posts from specific category on a wordpress Page. I would like to create a category named "blog" and link it to a page "blog" to display the posts . Is there a way to use custom menus to do that? Thanks
