WordPress Tutorial – How to Make a “Child” Subpage and Then Link to That Subpage Using the Blogroll

This Beginner-level WordPress tutorial shows how to create a “child” page. A child page is a subpage that has another page as its “parent”. In some WordPress themes, links to child pages appear underneath a link to the parent page in the website navigation links — either in the sidebar or under the main horizontal navigation links. In other WordPress themes, you cannot see any links to child pages.

In either case, you can create a visible link to a child page by making a new link under one of your Blogroll categories. This tutorial also shows how to find the web address (URL) of a WordPress child page when it is not visible anywhere in the website navigation links.

WordPress Tutorial – How to Make Menus of Links Using the Blogroll – PART TWO

This WordPress tutorial by Mark McLaren of McBuzz Communications is the second part of two in which I show how to make menus or lists of links using the Blogroll. The first part showed how to add a new category to the Blogroll and how to add a link under that category.

This tutorial shows how to create a set of links to pages or posts within your website itself, rather than linking to other websites. This is a handy way to create additional navigation on a WordPress website since the space available for links to Pages — like the About Us, Contact Us page, etc. — is sometimes fairly limited.

WordPress Tutorial – How to Make Menus of Links Using the Blogroll

This WordPress tutorial by Mark McLaren of McBuzz Communications will show you how to create menus or lists of links using what WordPress calls the “Blogroll”.

The term “Blogroll” originally meant a collection of links that a blogger would display in the sidebar of her blog. These would be links to the blogs of her friends and compatriots.

Like many other features of WordPress, you can use the Blogroll to do things that work well in a more traditional website. You can create any number of lists by creating new Blogroll categories. And, in the second part of this tutorial, I show you how to make a list of links to pages within your website.
