Can I put a category of posts into page? With some simple shortcode?

Please only try to open one thread per question to make it a little easier on us. :) Your best option is to search the Wordpress plugins for what you're looking for: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/. Search for something like "posts page".

Perhaps try checking out this plugin: http://justintadlock.com/archives/2009/03/15/query-posts-widget-wordpress-plugin If you check out the comments, there's some info on how to "shortcode" a widget as well ;)

Try a plugin called Special Recent Posts http://www.lucagrandicelli.com/special-recent-posts-plugin-for-wordpress/ This can be set up multiple times on a page, by category.

rangelone.. How would you setup Special Recent Posts to show multiple times on a page? ...I can't even get it to show me one specific category?!? I have (3) pages (...each setup for a category) and I would like to have each page show post 'excerpts' of that specific category. ...with Special Recent Posts I can modify the widget, but that same widget shows up on those (3) pages. (...not to mention I can't seem to figure out how to trim down that plugin to just give me a category - it keeps showing me all of my posts regardless of category.) I'm sure I'm probably over-complicating this...advice? Randall
