    Is it possible to create a blog page that only shows posts for certain categories? Like if I wanted to create a page tab that only shows posts for a certain category. And if so, how would I link that category to that one page?

    Just add the category to your menu

    OK I know how to create a menu but how do I create that as a subpage/tab?

    I guess I’m confused on created pages and menus.

    To create drop downs you drag the menu items right so that they are indented beneath the parent item

    I know that but how do I get the menu I create to show up as a page tab? Do I need to create menus for all page tabs, plus the ones I want for the specific categories? Right now I just have created pages, no menus.

    I don’t know what you mean by getting a menu to show as a page tab. You create menus in Appearance=>Menus. You can add whatever you want to a menu, pages, categories, tags, custom links, etc.

    I know but when I make the Menu in the “Primary Navigation Menu” it takes away all the other page tabs. I think we might be talking about two different things – Menus vs. Page tabs

    What do you mean by page tabs? What is your URL?

    The tabs at the top of my website for my pages. That you click on to go to the different pages. I want to create an subpage under Blog that shows only posts for a certain category. I know how to create a menu for a certain category, I just want it to show up under the Blog page tab when I mouse over that page tab.

    That is a menu. Go into Appearance=>Menus, add the category to your menu that you are using in the Primary position and drag it to the right beneath “Blog”

    I did that and it does not show up. I named my menu “Free Energy” If I select it in the Primary Navigation Menu, then the is the ONLY tab the shows on my site. All others disappear.

    Also, I never created individual menus for my page tabs. I just created new Pages and named them and put them in order of appearance.

    Are you running the latest version of Genesis, 1.9.1? You’re going to need to create a menu with all the items that you want in it and assign it to the Primary position.

    So all page tabs and subtabs are now created with Menus?

    Yes, menus are created in the Menus panel
