By | September 27, 2014

Make a WordPress blogrollThis training will be useful to you if you want to have a blogroll page that only includes posts for a specific category. If you just want to add a blogroll page for all categories then this will also show you how.

 

In my webpage I have 3 categories: Work From Home, Why Wealthy Affiliate, and Build My Website.

 

All my posts fit into one of these categories so I want a blogroll page for only the posts in that category.

 

Follow along with me and I will show you how to add a blogroll in WordPress for each category.

 

Add Blogroll in WordPress

Step 1

Create the categories that you want all your posts to fall under.

I chose:

  • Work From Home
  • Why Wealthy Affiliate
  • Build a Website

Add blogroll in WordPress for categories

Step 2 

From your WordPress Dashboard:

Go to “Appearance” ==> “Menus”

Add blogroll in WordPress

Step 3

Just to the right of the Dashboard Sidebar you will see options for “Pages,” “Links,” and “Categories.”

Select “Categories”

Now check the boxes for the categories you want a blogroll for. I selected all three of them.

Now click “Add to Menu.”

Drag each category to the position that you want it to appear in your menu.

Remeber to click “Save Menu.”

Where’s My Image?

You will notice that your blogroll will not have an image like mine.  These steps don’t show you how to do this but don’t worry, I have you covered. Go to my Add an Image to Blogroll training to learn how to do this. That training is as easy as this one and should only take a few minutes at most. Adding images is important to get your visitors to explore the different posts on your site. Remember that most of your website visitors are in “scam mode” and your images are essential to capture their attention.
