Automatic Posts Links From Category (3 posts)

    Ok I hope I explain this well enough.

    I have 1 category that gets posts from users. I have this 1 category blocked from hosting up on the home page, instead of shows up in a widget.

    I want to setup an automatic way to make a post that shows up on my homepage which contains like "the latest 5 posts from <category".

    I realize I could do this manually but I'd really like this automated. Anyone have any ideas?

    Like once a week, say Friday at 5pm, a post is made that appears on my homepage, like this.
    Title:: Latest From <Category>
    Body:
    <Post Title> <permalink url>
    <Post Title> <permalink url>
    <Post Title> <permalink url>
    <Post Title> <permalink url>
    <Post Title> <permalink url>

    I'll read into it further but at first glance this looks like it's a widget. I'm looking to have posts automatically made containing Posts Titles+Permalink URLs to a certain category.
