Genesis Child Theme: Executive Pro
Plugin: Design Palette Pro (DPP)
Hosting: Unix (Hostgator Shared Server)
Vocabulary Terms: Page, Slug, Category, Post (Specific meanings according to WordPress)
Custom: "News" is a page I created using WP New Page editor.
I have now created a category called "News".
Currently, the navigation menu consists of only Pages (and their "slugs") as the menu links. The paid plugin, Design Pallet Pro (DPP), makes it easy to do that.
Now, however, I am replacing the "News" Page with the "News" Category for one of those menu items. When the user clicks on "News" in the navigation menu I want the "News" Category page to appear. I changed the "News" Page slug to "/news-page/". I created the "News" category with "/news/" as the slug. The "News" menu item still lands on "/news-page/" instead of the "/news/" slug.
Is it possible to insert the "News" Category page into the main navigation menu? Does DPP provide a way to do it? Or must I modify the child theme code?
Design Palette Pro only offers design options. It does not offer any way to modify functionality.
To answer the question about inserting the Category page into the main navigation menu, go to Appearance -> Menus. You should see the Categories box, along with the pages and posts. If you do not, go up to Screen Options. Check the box for Categories. Once you do that, select the News category and add it to your menu.
