How can I create a blog post with multiple pages?


  • Newcomer

    Tristan,

    Can we have this drop-down menu as an option on the main website page navigation only? What I am looking for is a way to add pages to a blog post. For example, a page for:

    • Restaurants

    • Attractions

    • Shopping

    • Hiking

    etc.....

    See http://rogersvacationrentals.com/blog/2017/10/16/insiders-guide-to-dillon-co/ for example. The only way I could figure out how to add the link to "Restaurants" is to link it to a page I created on my wordpress blog. I would much rather link to a new page on my MyVR website instead of taking the viewer off site.

    Is it possible to add such navigation to a blog post page?

    @Valerie-Rogers - did you add the MyVR page first? Then use that URL as the destination?

    Hi Jenny,

    I created the MyVR blog post page first. I want to add sub-pages on the blog post page for each category in the guide. I can't figure out how to do that, so for now I'm just linking to those pages that I previously had created on my Wordpress blog. (which is where my "Insider's Guide" was originally created.)

    I found a way to add a page to the website, but I can't specify that I want the page to be a sub-page on a blog post...the new page is just added to the main navigation of the site (along with Home, Our Properties, About Us, Contact and Blog.)

    I found a tutorial that showed how to change the navigation on the site, but the changes only affect the main pages of the site...I don't see a way to add a drop down menu on a blog post page that can direct viewers to the category pages that I'd like to add.

    Hi Valerie,

    You should be able to accomplish this by simply adding pages to your MyVR website and linking to those MyVR site pages in your blogpost instead of linking to your Wordpress pages. Here are the specific steps I recommend taking

    1. Create a new page. I recommend creating a Blank Page to give yourself full control over the layout. Creating a blank page should not add anything to the main navigation bar of your website.

    1. Edit the page using the Layout Editor. Save the page.

    1. Publish the page.

    1. Link to the page in your blog post. The Content Editor should be sufficient for this.

    You can repeat these steps for every recommendation page that you want to have on your MyVR website.

    Best,

    Danny, THANK YOU!!! That is exactly what I needed...step by step instructions. I was able to follow them and create my first linked page to the blog post INSIDER'S GUIDE TO DILLON, CO (Restaurants).

    You're the best! 🙂

    Thank you, @Valerie-Rogers! Happy to help 😄

    I've moved this discussion into its own topic to make it easier for other people to find in the future.

    Cheers,
    Danny
