Use blog posts for different/multiple blog categories

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

I´m new to squarespace and currently creating our recipe website. I would like to display a blog post from one category in multiple categories. E.g. we have the recipe category "Sweet recipes" with Recipe A in there. I would like to display and add this Recipe A not only in the "Sweet recipes"-category, but also in the category "Recipe A-Z", but it should have the same URLs in both categories. So when clicking in the category "Recipe A-Z" on Recipe A, it should link me to the recipe post which was created in the category "Sweet recipes". 

Is a set-up like this possible? If yes, how exactly does this work? 

Thank you so much. 🙂

Hello,

If the "Recipe A-Z" represents all recipes and contains all of the blog posts/recipes, you can then add a unique tag or category to each of the recipes/posts. Unless you've created a new blog page for each category, then the "Recipe A-Z" page can act as a "master" page with all of the recipes and can be sorted by the tags and categories. The master page would contain all posts from all categories i.e., "Sweet Treats", "Tasty Delights"...etc. You can add multiple tags and categories by navigating to your blog page. You should see a list of all of your blog posts. Hover over the posts and click the three-dots for "Settings". There you will find options to add a Category or Tag. You can add multiple categories by using commas between new keywords. All of this can be done without changing the URL or anything of that nature.

Hope this helps!

Hi Dan, 

thanks a lot for your quick answer and your help! :) I´ve now added the tags and categories to each blog post, but somehow it seems as it still isn´t working, that under the Recipe A-Z category all posts/recipes are displayed. Here´s the current structure I´ve created. Do you have an idea how I can solve this? 

Thank you so much!

Hello,

Pardon my ignorance here but my German isn't great at all. I usually have a better idea understanding the structure by reading the page titles but from what I can see, if all of the posts are entered in the Recipe A-Z page and you've applied categories and tags to each post. All that's left is creating the filters using summary blocks. You'll want to create another blank page that will act as each "category" page that posts will filter too.

Create a blank page and title it "Sweet Treats,...etc", do it for each different category. Then add a section and use the Summary Block. The Summary Block will give you the option to share posts from the "Recipe A-Z"/Master blog. You'll be able to filter those posts by the tags and categories you already set. You can use multiple tags and multiple categories in one Summary Block if you need. From the sound of it, you'll need to do this for all of the categories by either creating a new section to the page or by creating a new page entirely repeating the Summary Block process with filters.
