The perfect way to do this is with a section like Filtering available on the PageLines Marketplace http://www.pagelines.com/shop/sections/filtering/

 

Filtering allows you to filter your posts or custom post types by categories, tags or custom taxonomy terms

 

There may also be 3rd party plugins available on the Wordpress Repository here http://wordpress.org/plugins/

AH, looks really nice, and it works fine to just have an regular loop, like a "blog" or so..? Without the fancy "filtering-gallery" as shown in the demo..

Hi there,

 

If you want to create a page of posts on one particular category you can select the category in a custom menu and add the item to the nav. This will create a dynamic category page that will pull the posts into the postloop based on the category you select.

 

See http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/ for more information on setting up a custom menu.

Hi James, Yep, that i know of course.. But in my case right now i'll need one category for the first page, and on another page i'll need 2 loops with different setting.. :)

Trying again here:

 

On the Demo, there’s a fancy sortable filtering-function, very neat, but i’m looking for a simpler thing and I suppose the plugin can do it, but I want to make sure it does. I’ll just want a regular loop, like a list-view from top to bottom where the posts are selected on my choices of category & tags, etc, plain simple from the up and down. Is it possible? :)

 

(And i know I can make it little bit in the menu by directing to a category, but in my case i'll want the latest/featured post from one category on my homepage, and on another page, the remaining..

Hi there, I've copied in ellenmva who is the author of Filtering who'll be able to advise further if those features are available.
