hi.

 

I thought this was something I'd done easily in the past but I'm not finding it today.

 

I have a blog page that I only want to pull 1 catagory in but its pulling all of them.

 

is there a good way to just show 1 category?

 

I've used pagelines postpins for this situation, but I'd like to have it on the normal blog.

 

probably is its pulling in this receipe catagory that doesn't belong.

Hi there,

 

You'd use a category page instead of the blog page on the site. You'll need to make a custom menu via appearance>menus which lets you add a category and creates the page dynamically only pulling in the posts from that category.

 

There you'll be able to select the pages you want to appear in the custom menu and you'll also be able to select a category. Add the category and edit the 'label' to call it blog (if you want it to appear as blog still).

 

Full details and a video tutorial on setting up custom menus can be found at
