    There are also some hooks available for adding fields to the category archives. Very handy for using more static content on category archives.

    I think it requires these hooks:

    Thanks Justin, glad to see there’s a quick & easy built-in method for adding categories to the menu! The other tutorials I stumbled upon involved coding and most likely hours of tweaking, your method took about 5 mins for a first-timer including the 2 mins to read this page 🙂

    Great article. I was about to make a page template and kept thinking to myself “I know I’ve done this a simpler way before!” You just saved me a lot of time. Very good summary of the subject.

    I’d like to create a page that lists ALL posts, organized by category. For example, it would say:


    blog post 1 in the content category

    blog post 1 in the content category


    blog post 1 in the design category

    blog post 1 in the design category

    Can that be done?

    Most people are worried with adding the class file to their menu so their guests can without much of a stretch discover the page. We’re so used to considering pages being in the menu that we don’t consider including different things. Before, this was practically the main decision accessible without keeping in touch with some code. In any case, WordPress’ nav menus framework deals with that.
