I'm trying to create a church site using WordPress.
The following is a small sample of the page structure I'm trying to create:
- Statement of Faith
- Furnace Prayer
- Common Grounds Group
- Youth Group
Ministries are not actual, physical pages. They just serve as a logical grouping of the pages.
With this structure in mind, I'm trying to accomplish a couple things that I can't quite figure out:
I'd like to create the menu items,
Ministries, on a site-wide menu located in the header. However, I do not wan't to create the typical drop-down menu that lists all the pages underneath each section. I simply wan't the menu item to take the user to the first page underneath each section. So, if the user clicked on
About, it would take them to
Staff; and, if the user clicked
Ministriesit would take them to
On each page (Staff, Statement of Faith, Contact, Furnace Prayer, etc.), I will have a sidebar. On the sidebar I would like to put the text of the page's section as a heading (for
Staffit would be
Furnace Prayerit would be
Ministries; etc). If I was able to create categories for pages, I would do that; but, it doesn't look like I am able to do that with WordPress.
So, how can I accomplish the above mentioned problems? I could probably create a parent, empty page to stick the subpages under and then link to the first subpage in the menu, but this doesn't seem like the correct way to do things.
I hope this makes sense. If I need to clarify the questions, please let me know.
