I’m building a website with a blog attached, transferring a WP Blog to WF. Everything is great. But! On my blog page template, I want a navigation sidebar with links to recent posts, categories and archives. So I started with the categories first. My problem is it won’t work. I think I found the problem but don’t know what to do to fix it. In the Navigator under collection list wrapper, there is a mini title link.
In the element settings panel, when I click on the collection page icon (left pink icon) the only option I get is for “Current Blog Post”.
When I go to my categories collection list under “Categories Connections” in the “categories Template” it lists 1) “Text” but doesn’t list “Text Reference Item” which I’ve seen in deconstructing a template.
As a result, when I go to the “Collection List Wrapper” and add the filter for “Category is Category Name” and sort order: “Wp post date (Date/Time)” “newest to oldest” all the items on the page disappear.
I’ve tried to stat the problem as clearly as I can. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
If there is a good tutorial dealing with this issue I’d love to see it. I’ve searched all over but haven’t come up with anything helpful. Nelson has a tutorial where he transfers Charli’s site but only shows how to set up the sub navs and categories, but not how to hook it all together.
Thanks in advance.
