Hi there,

 

Wordpress can set up dynamic category pages using a custom menu. If you go to appearance>menus and create a new menu, you'll see an option to include categories down the left hand side of the page. Check the categories you want to include. This will include a category page which is dynamically created pulling posts from the chosen category.

 

For more information from custom menus see - http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

 

If you want to include a group of category based posts on a static page then I'd suggest looking at the special recents posts plugin - http://wordpress.org/plugins/special-recent-posts/ or Pagelines anyloop - http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/anyloop/


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Hi,
      How can I remove the "next post" links below each post page?

      Before we had a related post section, but I can't find it among any functions, widgets etc.

      Hey folks - I'm trying to get right of some 'dead space' at the bottom of the page in the Material Theme. (see attached) Those two gray lines have an "Edit" button in between them when the browser has a login cookie for the site. Here I created a screenshot from a browser session that doesn't have context for my main login, so you can see that the "Edit" indicator is gone, but the bars and the space it occupies still remains. Can someone help me isolate this so I can make it *completely* disappear? Thanks.

      Hi everybody,
      I use Pagelines for some years now, but for the first time I have to split up posts into several pages.
      Unfortunately, <!-- nextpage --> doesn't work.
      Can please someone help me, making that work?
      I don't have the time to change the theme and need the post split up because it would be way too long, espcially on mobile displays ...
      Thanks in anticipation!!!
