I have a category that I've elevated onto the menu bar. I'd like to have a couple of pages under that menu heading, but when I go to my 'Add New Page', the Category doesn't show up as a Parent in the Page Attributes. Can I add a drop down menu under the Category 'Hiking' for subpages? How do I do that? My site is www.pebblestew.com. Thanks everyone!

Pages and categories are two different things, but you can do what you want. You need to make a Wordpress custom menu (dashboard->appearances->menu) where you can put a page under a category. If you don't know how to use it, do some google searches.

I figured out what I was doing wrong. I thought I could set up a page draft to fall where I wanted it, but I had to publish that page in order to see it on the dashboard->appearances->menu page. Thanks for trying to help, Juggledad!
