    I try hard to find a solution to add a parent page to a normal wordpress post, but I am too dumb to find something. Anyone an idea?
    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Not sure what you mean m8. You want to add like an "about me" page to your wordpress blog?

    For every page you can make a child page. In my case I dont want a child page, I want a child post.
    For example my page is about chocolate and than I want to make a child post to this page like chocolate cake recipe.

    Pretty sure that you cannot make a post a child under a page. Most plugins and such that function either function for pages or posts, not both.

    Go to Administration > Pages > Add New panel.
    In the right menu, click the "Page Parent" drop-down menu.
    Select the appropriate parent Page from the drop-down menu to make the current Page a child Page.
    Add content to the subpage.
    Click Publish when ready.

    sure!
    I want to make a perfect silo. So lets say my site is about football. so one of my silos would be england (parent page) than Premier League would be the child page. Then Manchester, liverpool, arsenal would be "child post". this is my plan. I made a custom link structure like that:
    www.football.com/england/premier-league/manchester

    Pages have some disadvantages (for example missing in rss, etc) so I want posts.

    another solution is categories, but on categories they show all posts. So in category england they show all teams from premier and barclays, etc. This is not really a silo.

    The easiest way would be adding RSS feed to pages and go with all page structure - There is a plugin RSS includes Pages, give it a try.

    - The other option would be changing category.php in the themefile. I'm not really familiar with silos, what should be on the main category page?
