Cecille is quite correct, at least when using the AffiloTheme theme as I do. If you have a list of categories, then assign individual posts to each category, the webpage will show only the categories in the sidebar. Clicking on one of these categories will then bring up a page listing all the articles in that category.
The problem is, I think, that this is very unappealing for a visitor to that page. There is little incentive to click on any of the article titles listed. I have been trying to find a better way of presenting this information, so far without success. It would be good, for instance, to have a thumbnail picture attached to each title heading, or some other visual attraction. The ideal answer is a proper dynamic navigation sidebar (as Google Panda seems to like) but, again, I haven't found a widget yet that works with AffiloTheme.
Does anybody have any good ideas or suggestions?
